Firestone Rubber Roof EPDM
Firestone EPDM rubber roofing in High Wycombe is an advanced type of roof covering which is popular with homeowners & commercial premises alike. The covering used is EPDM or ‘ethylene propylene diene monomer’ which 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.
EPDM rubber roofing in High Wycombe is often 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.
The Benefits of EPDM Rubber Roofing
Firestone RubberCover™ EPDM membranes offer unmatched resistance to ozone, UV radiation and high or low temperatures. They have a life expectancy of up to 50 years. Over a billion of square meters of roof installations worldwide are a testimony of Firestone EPDM membrane’s proven performance.
Very low life-cycle cost
Firestone EDM rubber roofing in High Wycombe requires no or only little maintenance once installed. This feature, combined with the membrane’s inherent durability and competitive installed cost, result in a very low lifecycle cost.
Firestone RubberCover™ EPDM is an inert material with limited environmental impact, both during manufacture and installation, and high durability compared to other roofing membranes. In addition, Firestone’s EPDM manufacturing facilities have received ISO 14001 certification for their environmental management system.
Seamless sheets in 1 piece
Firestone RubberCover™ EPDM membranes are available in large, seamless sheets up to 6.10 m in width. Most small residential roofs can therefore be covered with one single sheet without any field seaming.

Installation of Firestone RubberCover™ EPDM membranes is easy. It requires no flame as the membrane is always fully adhered to the substrate using a cold applied adhesive.
High flexibility and elongation
Firestone RubberCover™ EPDM membranes remain highly flexible even at low temperatures, enabling year round installation. The membrane can also elongate over 300% to accommodate building movements.
