EPDM Rubber Roof Facts
EPDM, which stands for Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer is a rubber membrane that has been fitted to millions of flat roofs worldwide since the first Firestone rubber roofs were installed in 1980.
It has several major advantages over other flat roofing systems like felt, butyl, asphalt and GRP (fibreglass). These include being flexible so it can expand and contract with the building as temperatures vary, plus being completely inert, so unaffected by heat or light. This means it doesn’t shrink or crack.
It is also available in very large sheets, meaning most domestic and some commercial installations (depending on size) can be fitted in one piece. If you want a flat roof that will not let you down in years to come, you need an EPDM roof, fitted by Rain Defence Roofing!
