If you read this and decide that you’re interested in having an EPDM roof installed, please contact us.

What is EPDM?

Ethylene Polypropylene Diene Monomer (EPDM) is a form of liquid rubber roofing that’s one of the most popular materials for flat roofs. A highly versatile form of roofing, EPDM is used for both domestic and commercial flat roofing in Farnham and the surrounding areas. It’s a great choice for those who want a more durable option than felt roofs or those who want a more cost-effective option than GRP roofs.

What are the Benefits of EPDM Roofs?

EPDM roofs are quick and easy to install when carried out by professional roofing specialists. They’re highly sustainable and approved by Greenpeace for their eco-friendly and fully recyclable qualities, unlike other roofing materials that contain harmful bitumen. When installed correctly, EPDM has a life expectancy of 50 years, with minimal maintenance required. This durability gives you an excellent return on investment and means you’re less likely to need roof repairs in the future when compared to other roofing materials. Even when EPDM roofing becomes damaged, small holes or tears in the rubber can be quick and easy to mend. You may only need to apply a patch over a damaged area or apply a sealant product to restore your roof to full working capacity. 

Continuing the environmentally friendly theme, EPDM flat roofs are ideal for the installation of solar panels for those in the Farnham area who want to invest in renewable energy. You can attach solar panelling to your EPDM roof by mechanically fixing it to the structure or using a ballast as a means of weighing it down. 

Overall, there’s plenty to like about EPDM flat roofing, and it’s no surprise that its popularity has been soaring recently. For all new EPDM installations around Farnham and Ascot, you know you can rely on MI Roofing and Waste Disposal Ltd to do a thorough and professional job.
