Roof Repairs: The EPDM Rubber Roofing System

Strong winds and heavy rainfall (typical British summer weather!) have caused damage to structures all over the country, particularly to roofs. Twistfix supply a comprehensive collection of roof repair products, including the bestselling Firestone EPDM Rubber Roofing Kit.

The  Firestone EPDM Rubber Roofing system has been on the market for more than 40 years, testament to its unbeaten quality, versatility and successful application. Since the product was launched in the USA, well over a BILLION square metres of Firestone EPDM rubber roofing has been sold, making it the most popular type of roofing membrane on the planet.

EPDM stands for Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer. The material has excellent resistance to liquid, ozone, extreme temperature and UV radiation, delivering robust insulating qualities. Quick and easy to install, EPDM creates a seamless finish that provides the best protection for roofing structures.

The Firestone EPDM Rubber Roofing system has received countless accolades, including being named 'the best-buy roofing membrane' by the Association of Community Technical Aid Centres (ACTAC). In its publication 'Building the Future', Greenpeace revealed the results of an in-depth study of EPDM, in which it concluded that the material is an 'envi­­ron­­men­­tally-friendly choice of roofing membrane'.

Firestone EPDM rubber roofing is available as separate pieces from Twistfix but, for a more cost-effective choice, we recommend our comprehensive EPDM kit. As well as a piece of membrane in your chosen size, the kit contains all of the fixings, adhesives and trims required to achieve a professional, lasting result.
