EPDM Rubber Roofing St Helens – the Perfect Solution for your Flat Roof
EDPM Rubber Roofing lasts longer than no other waterproofing membranes.
And, you’d also be doing your bit for the planet.
Leading environmental pressure group, Greenpeace, in their report, Building for the Future, argued how the making and disposal of PVC roof membranes releases toxic chemicals into the environment which not only pollute our wildlife but our bodies too.
They suggested EPDM as an alternative.
At Improve A Roof, we fully support EPDM roofing in St Helens.
We strive to deliver products and services to go stretch above the requirements of our customers, while being environmentally aware.
What is the EPDM Rubber membrane?
Firestone RubberCover EPDM is a 100% cured single-ply roofing membrane made of a synthetic rubber Ethylene-Propylene-Diene Terpolymer.
Since 1980, more than 1,000,000,000 square metres of Firestone EPDM membranes have been successfully installed on commercial, industrial and residential roofs worldwide.
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 St Helens?
The membranes give 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?
No specific maintenance is required for a Firestone RubberCover EPDM roofing system on your St Helens home. However, a yearly inspection of the roof is recommended.
How can the membrane be repaired in case of damage?
For flat areas, the membrane can be easily repaired with a piece of Quickseam SA flashing. For damage at angle changes, a Quickseam Corner Flashing patch must be used instead.
Is the membrane available in different colours?
No, the membrane is only available in slate grey.
