EPDM is a new installation of flat roofing, where as felted flat roofs usually last 10 years, EPDM has been proven to last upto 50 years. EPDM is a seamless waterproof membrane, measured to fit the flat roof. It comes with attractive flashing trims and is an easy and quick installation. we are your local Hereford flat roofing specialists.
After old roof felt / boarding has been stripped away and disposed, new 18mm OSB boarding will be applied. Sometimes depending on the roof rafter structure, a postive slope towards the gutter will need to be installed too.
The boarding is applied with a water based adhesive glue. The membrane is then rolled out slowly, brushing away any bubbles. Any upstands will have a stronger glue to hold against the brickwork.
White or black trims are applied to the edge, gutter and upstands to protect the roof from water entering, keeps the rubber from expanding and contracting due to the seasonal climates and to give an attractive finish. If your looking for a Hereford EPDM installer please contact us...
