Rubber Roofing (Firestone EPDM)

As an accredited installer of Firestone RubberCover EPDM Roofing we believe that this product is one of the best residential flat-roof EPDM solutions on the market.

The system is based on high performing EPDM rubber membranes and a limited range of accessories offering a watertight and durable roofing solution.

Firestone RubberCover EPDM Roofing System is the ideal solution for small residential flat roofs and other extensions, verandas, dormers, porches, garages, carports, garden sheds, balconies, gutters and trailers. You name it.

Thanks to a unique combination of features and benefits, Firestone RubberCover is our first choice for residential EPDM roofing projects.

Key features & benefits

is a 100% cured single-ply roofing membrane made of an Ethylene-Propylene-Diene Terpolymer. Its unique features and benefits can guarantee you that your Firestone RubberCover EPDM roofing installation is watertight and extremely durable.

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.

Felt, fibreglass (GRP) or rubber (EPDM) flat roofing solutions - We've got you covered!

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.

RubberCover EPDM membranes require no flame as the membrane is always fully adhered to the substrate using a cold applied adhesive. This makes the EPDM roofing installation process easy, as well as safe.

Once installed, Firestone RubberCover EPDM membranes require no or only little maintenance. This, combined with the membrane's inherent durability and competitive installed cost, results in a very low lifecycle cost.

The RubberCover EPDM membrane is an inert material with limited environmental impact both during manufacture and installation and high durability compared to other roofing membranes.

Flat Roofs

What is a 'Flat Roof'?

It may sound like a stupid question, but a flat roof is typically not a flat roof.

A flat roof is a roof which is, contrary to it's name, almost never level, but which will appear level in contrast to the many types of sloped roofs.

The slope of a roof is properly known as its pitch, and flat roofs will typically have up to approximately 10° of pitch.

Construction Methods

There are a range of different construction methods for flat roofs in use throughout the UK today.

These include, but are not limited to: 3-ply 'torch-on' felt, fibreglass (GRP, or glass reinforced plastic) and rubber e.g. Firestone™ EPDM (Ethylene propylene diene monomer - now you can see why we generally refer to this as simply 'rubber' or EPDM!).

Which Type to Choose?

When it comes down to which type of flat roof solution to choose, there's no 'one size fits all' answer.

There are pros and cons to each method of construction and the price associated with it, and that's where the the benefit of an honest appraisal - one that suits your needs, in respect of both longevity and price - comes in.

When you request a quotation from RJ Hood Roofing, we'll discuss your requirements and will be happy to both advise and to provide a quotation for various flat roof construction types, should you require.
