EPDM stands for Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer, and is a synthetic rubber created from oil, the natural gas ethylene propylene and diene - a hydrocarbon that contains two double carbon bonds. To make it usable for roofing, the EPDM Rubber is vulcanised, or dried out, and turned into sheets of roofing membrane. Vulcanisation improves the strength of the rubber, as well as its resistance to heat, water and abrasion.
Due to its advantages, EPDM Rubber Roofing can be used on a range of buildings spanning the domestic, commercial, agricultural and industrial sectors. These include:
• Flat Roofs.
• Garage Roofs.
• Car Ports.
• Shed Roofs.
• Green Roofs.
• Garden Studio Office Roofs.
• Bay Window Roofs.
• Low-slope Roofs.
Our EPDM Rubber Roofs boast many benefits that we are extremely proud of.
First and foremost, we install the EPDM Rubber as a whole sheet wherever possible, ensuring the entire roof is covered. This reduces the need for seams, therefore boosting the roof’s waterproofing capabilities. EPDM Rubber is itself waterproof ensuring the contents beneath are kept safely dry.
EPDM Rubber Roofs are also fire-resistant, so should a fire ever spread to your roof, it can self-hinder the potentially damaging effects and ensure the roof itself doesn’t perish. They are also difficult to purposely ignite.
If maintained properly, the average life expectancy of an EPDM Rubber Roof is around 30 years. This is aided by the roof’s excellent flexibility, being able to stretch up to 300% before cracking, splitting or breaking. This is useful in times of freezing winters and hot summers. Protection from UV Rays, wind, snow and hail are also virtually guaranteed.
Further, in both production and utilisation, the roofs are environmentally friendly. Combined extraction, manufacture and installation require little energy, and primers and adhesives are usually added to the membrane to reduce any Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) released during installation. When it comes time to replace the roof, it can be easily recycled.
EPDM Rubber Roofs can also form the under layer of a Green Roof, providing added protection from adverse weather conditions.
Lastly, the roofs are extremely cost-efficient. Not only are they generally cheaper than other roofing materials, but their thickness keeps heat in during cold months, and the sun’s heat out during warmer ones, reducing the need for internal heating, air conditioning or fans.
