Flat roofs can fail for many reasons. Leaks spring from seemingly nowhere caused by weather conditions, UV or physical damage, and even poorly laid roofing materials. Flat roofs are particularly susceptible to water ingress as, whilst sloped roofs offer natural drainage, flat roofs do not. Water can be left to pool and this, combined with the change in temperature that most roofs experience throughout a year, can lead to small leaks. Small leaks can quickly spread, affecting the timber structure beneath and left unchecked can become a major issue.
A solution to such flat roofing problems is the installation of a high grade roofing material like Rubbaseal EPDM. This rubber membrane is designed so that it is easy and safe to fit, will last a lifetime, and will withstand the rigours of the weather, physical damage, and many other conditions that other traditional roofing materials struggle to cope with. The result is a roof that can last for 50 years or more.
EPDM roofing is guaranteed because of its strength and durability. It will retain its strength throughout any weather conditions. Some roofing materials will crack, split, or become misshapen following heat and extreme cold.EPDM roofing will not suffer these same problems and your rubber flat roof is assured to be safe.
Roofing problems often start when there are joins in the material. If you rely on material that comes in relatively narrow rolls then the material will need to be joined at many intervals. These joins are then obviously the ongoing weak points.
Rubbaseal EPDM is a long lasting and durable solution to roofing problems. By installing EPDM Rubber roofing on your flat roof it is possible to prevent leaks and to provide your home with the type of protection that it really needs.
