FIRESTONE EPDM RUBBER ROOF
Our roofers in Birmingham are specialists in working with the Firestone EPDM rubber membrane, which is the latest innovation in flat and small pitch roofing. It is perfect for any roofing project where longevity is your goal.
Residential roofing applications require a particular roofing installation system, which is what Firestone RubberCover EPDM Roofing is specifically designed for.
The system is based on installing high performance EPDM rubber membranes with a limited number of other accessories, which together make for a watertight and durable roofing solution.
This is the ideal material for small residential flat roofs and other extensions, such as verandas, dormers, porches, garages, carports, garden sheds, gutters, and balconies, among others.
Thanks to its unique combination of features and benefits, Firestone RubberCover is the primary choice for EPDM roofing projects across the country.
EPDM rubber proofing has unique properties which include:
- Superior durability
The membranes of Firestone RubberCover offer unmatched resistance to ozone, UV radiation, and extreme temperatures and the material has a life expectancy of up to 50 years.
- Seamless sheets in 1 piece
Firestone RubberCover is available in large, seamless sheets of up to 6.10m in width. A single sheet of this size can cover most residential roofs without any field seaming, which makes it very easy to use.
- Very low life-cycle cost
Once installed, the EPDM rubber membranes require little to no maintenance at all. When combined with the membrane’s inherent durability and very competitive cost for installation, it makes for a highly affordable roofing solution.
- Flame-free and easy installation
Unlike some other roofing materials, the EPDM rubber membranes don’t need a naked flame to apply them to the required area, as each membrane is always fully adhered to the substrate using a cold applied adhesive. This ensures an easy and safe roofing installation process.
- High flexibility and elongation
The EPDM rubber membranes remain highly flexible even at low temperatures, which makes installation possible all year round.
- Environmentally friendly
Firestone RubberCover EPDM membrane is an inert material with limited environmental impact during both its manufacturing and installation, while the manufacturing facilities that prepare the EPDM for use have received ISO 14001 certification for their environmental management system.
- Recovery of rainwater
Physical tests at a laboratory conducting environmental analyses show that Firestone RubberCover EPDM membrane and the assembly system that goes with it allow the recovery of rainwater, making it possible to recycle the collected water for domestic use.
