Rubber or EPDM roofing is an alternative to traditional felt, bitumen or asphalt for flat roofs and extensions.
Whilst felt, bitumen and asphalt were the only choices for flat roofs, rubber brings with it a host of benefits which we will highlight below.
Jacob James Roofing have over 20 years of experience on flat roof installations right across Nottingham, including rubber, felt, GPR and warm roofs.
If you have had a flat roof previously installed that used different roofing covering you could be fed up with hard-to-spot leaks that have led to expensive repairs. The biggest benefit of using EPDM roofing is that it has a proven life expectancy of over 50 years!
Synthetic rubber also does not support the growth of moss which means you are guaranteed a clear roof plus it does not easily show dirt so you will spend less time cleaning the surface.
EPDM roofing is made from recycled materials which makes it more environmentally friendly compared to other roofing systems. It is also BBA certified, a signifier that you are getting a quality product.
Because of its natural properties, your rubber roofs will be completely resistant to blistering, cracks and any rot.
The EPDM membrane can also be cut to specification to fit your roof size and include any necessary overhang making for an easy installation. If you are looking for a specific size of rubber membrane please get in touch and we can prepare these once your order has been placed.
Having EPDM roofing that is cut to size means you get a standard roof with one membrane plus you have the option of a couple of pieces of membrane that can join together easily.
EPDM systems can also be walked on during and after the installation and are designed to take light foot traffic for occasional cleaning or maintenance. Use common sense and avoid studded boots and shoes and if you intend to use a ladder on the roof use a plank or board to spread the load.
