EPDM Rubber Roof Kit

Storm Babet recently raged all across the UK, causing widespread flooding, property damage and even the tragic loss of several lives. With the final month of autumn just about to begin and a long winter looming not far behind, it is the ideal time to boost the defences of single-ply roofs such as those on garages, sheds and home extensions. 

One of the most reliable ways of providing such roofs with the necessary protection, as well as repairing those that have already been compromised and are starting to leak, is with the Firestone rubber roof kit. These products remain at the forefront of the market and have been successfully used for more than 40 years: to date, over a billion square metres of Firestone rubber roofing has been sold, which places it comfortably as the market's most popular product of its type. 

The EPDM roof kit (EPDM stands for Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer, which is an especially robust type of rubber) enjoys this widespread popularity for many reasons. Named as the 'best-buy roofing membrane' by Association of Community Technical Aid Centres (ACTAC), EPDM is also an especially sustainable product: the results of a detailed Greenpeace study found the material to be an 'envi­ron­men­tally-friendly choice of roofing membrane'.­ 

EPDM displays exceptional resistance to a wide range of potentially-damaging threats, including extreme temperatures, chemical attack, moisture, strong winds, ozone and UV radiation. Designed to effortlessly withstand natural the natural contraction and expansion movements of a structure, EPDM also boasts excellent insulating properties, helping to reduce energy costs and thus carbon emissions. 

Installing EPDM rubber roofing is a fast and simple process, allowing a seamless finish to be consistently achieved. Once installed, the EPDM supplied as part of our comprehensive rubber roofing kits will deliver a life expectancy of a least five decades with very little maintenance required.
