EPDM Flat Roofing

EPDM Flat Roofing SALISBURY – the perfect solution for your flat roof.

Why install EPDM?

Getting an EPDM rubber membrane installed on your flat roof in Salisbury is a great choice for a couple of reasons.

It lasts longer than other waterproofing membranes, making it more cost-effective on price.

You’d be helping the environment. Leading environmental pressure group, Greenpeace, in their report, Building for the Future, highlighted how the making and disposal of PVC roof membranes releases toxic chemicals into the environment which not only pollute our wildlife but potentially our bodies too. They recommend using EPDM as an alternative.

What is EPDM rubber membrane?

EPDM is a 100% cured single-ply roofing membrane made of a synthetic rubber Ethylene-Propylene-Diene Terpolymer.

It is widely used in low-slope buildings. Its two primary ingredients, ethylene and propylene, are derived from oil and natural gas. EPDM can be installed either fully adhered, mechanically attached or ballasted, with the seams of the roofing system sealed with liquid adhesives or specially formulated tape.

We are able to offer various roll sizes, the biggest being 15m wide and 61m long. The EPDM Rubber membrane is resistant to UV rays and ozone.

How long will an EPDM rubber roof last in Salisbury?

EDPM membrane provides unequalled resistance to UV radiation, ozone, alkali rains and high or low temperatures.
Studies show that the membrane has a life expectancy of more than 50 years, even when exposed to sunlight.

Is maintenance required?

Rubber roofing is designed to last. It’s most appealing feature is its ability to resist harsh weather conditions, debris and other troubles that your roof undergoes. EDPM is strong, durable and highly-resistant, making it the perfect flat roofing solution for everyone!

So no specific maintenance is required for an EPDM roofing system on your Salisbury home. However, a yearly inspection of the roof is recommended.
