The Firestone EPDM flat roof system is an advanced type of roof covering. EPDM or ‘ethylene propylene diene monomer’ is a type of synthetic rubber known for its weather resistant properties.
This rubber is able to withstand heat, cold and other weather conditions and has excellent insulation qualities as well. It has been used extensively in the USA for more than 40 years and is also the most commonly used single ply roofing membrane in the world.
The Firestone rubber EPDM system is used on small domestic flat roof buildings such as outhouses, extensions and garages which are ideally suited to this type of covering. Plus the majority of domestic flat roofs are rectangular shaped which means a straightforward process with little fuss.
We only use materials such as the Firestone EPDM rubber system which are environmentally friendly and re-usable. The low cost aspect is a selling point but its durability and green credentials are what make it our number one roofing membrane. This membrane is recommended by Greenpeace and the Association of Community Technical Aid Centres Ltd: and conforms to ISO standards in regard to environmental rules and regulations.
How is this rubber flat roof system fitted?
This type of system involves the fitting of a custom made piece of rubber sheeting which is glued to new 18mm decking boards with cold adhesives. This is then sealed in place by means of edging strips which prevents the risk of leaks.
