Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer, or EPDM as it is more commonly known, is designed to be able to stand up to the most extreme conditions that a flat roof will face, providing it with long lasting ability.
At Rubber 4 Roofs, we offer EPDM flat roof materials which have a life expectancy in excess of 50 years.
With a reliable and durable construction and a permanently flexible design, this type of flat roofing material is made to be able to withstand all kinds of weather conditions, including extreme weather cycles, changing climates, plus protection from the acids found in rainwater and constant exposure to direct UV.
A Roofing Material With a Life Expectancy in Excess of 50 Years
All of the EPDM flat roofing materials we offer have a life expectancy in excess of 50 years. This makes them both highly cost-effective and environmentally friendly.
EPDM roofing was first laid in the 1960s in the USA by CarlisleTM Syntec. Impressively and showcasing the material’s long lasting abilities, these original EPDM roofing installations are still protecting the roofs today.
Since then, many internationally recognised companies have chosen EDPM rubber roofing for their buildings. These companies include Honda, Microsoft, Staples and Barclaycard. In addition to this, the Playhouse Theatre in London has a roof with an EPDM covering, as do many schools, shopping centres, railway stations, hospitals, commercial and residential properties across the globe. In fact, over 1 billion square metres of material have been installed worldwide!
Our EPDM membranes are able to fix onto nearly every roof surface. Typical applications include flat roof extensions, garage roofs, gutter linings, balcony floors and shed roofs.
