Sheffield Rubber Roofing Experts
As long-standing Sheffield rubber roofing experts we offer in-depth knowledge of the modern technology. Choosing a roofing material today is about more than just picking the colour slate or tile you like and adding some roofing felt to the flat areas. There are a host of new roofing materials that can be used in different situations and come with a range of benefits. For flat roofs of all sizes, one of the most popular new materials is rubber roofing, or to give it it’s proper name, EPDM.
EPDM (ethylene propylene diene terpolymer) is a durable synthetic rubber membrane that can be applied to flat roofs or those with a low pitch. The product first became popular in the United States but is now available around the world. Here in the UK, one of the local suppliers of the product who can also offer fitting are Newbould Roofing.
Rubber roofing is available in a number of different specifications for the property in question. These include ranging in widths from 7.5 to 50 feet as well as in 45 and 60 mils thickness. There are even different ways to apply the membrane including fully adhered, mechanically attached or even ballasted. Even specially formulated tape has been created to work with the product along with liquid adhesives.
Durable & effective roofs
EPDM has an expected lifespan of at least 40 years, making it cost effective and durable compared to older styles of roofing materials. It is an eco-friendly material made from by-products of oil and gas and is tolerant to a range of different climate extremes, including very cold and very hot locations. It is easy to install and very safe, reducing the risk of accidents and injury to workmen and is also very easy to maintain once in place.
