What is EPDM? (The techie bit!)
“EPDM is an elastomeric compound that is manufactured from ethylene, propylene, and a small amount of diene monomer. These ingredients are synthesized to produce a product that exhibits a high degree of ozone, ultraviolet, weathering and abrasion resistance, and outstanding low temperature flexibility. These ingredients also contribute to resistance to acids, alkalis, and oxygenated solvents (i.e., ketones, esters, and alcohols). “
In other words:-
This is a state of the art, long lasting, chemically resistant roofing material that will outlast roofing felt many times over.
EPDM Flat Roofing
By their very nature flat roofs can need regular maintenance and repairs to keep them in tip top condition. Whilst some flat roofs are plagued with problems, our high performance EPDM system looks great from day one and stays looking and performing superbly for many years.
How does it work?
Our flat roofing provides a smooth, synthetic, and durable finish, and unlike many traditional flat roofs, doesn’t require any ballast or chippings that can block guttering and downpipes. Proven to outlast conventional flat roofing materials, our EPDM system is well known for its resistance to extreme weather conditions, including strong winds, constant sun and torrential rain, as well as fluctuations in temperature. They are also virtually maintenance free, so you save lots of time and money on repairs and upkeep.
