What is an EPDM roof?
World of Roofing can offer EPDM roofs which are a new technology delivering strong, durable roofing for projects of all shapes and sizes.
EPDM stands for ethylene propylene diene monomer and is a type of tough, synthetic rubber. The benefits of this type of roof are that it is extremely hardwearing and lasts a long time. It is also cheap, easy to repair and it can be applied in larger sheets than felt so there are fewer joins which means there are fewer weak points where leaks or peeling can occur.
Also known as rubber roofing, EPDM is applied with glue and can be stuck directly to a wide range of surfaces. This makes it really easy to apply on a flat roof and cuts down installation time.
One of the biggest benefits of an EPDM roof is the fleece backing which increases the thickness of the roof and is the reason it is so durable. This roofing material can last up more than 35 years as certified by the British Board of Agrément.
Like felt or GRP fibreglass roofs, EPDM roofing can be cut to fit various sizes and shapes of roof which means it is able to be installed on office blocks, home extensions, garage roofs, outbuildings, apartment blocks, public buildings and a wide range of other properties where durability and low maintenance is important.
