Using A Rubber Roofing Kit for your EPDM Project

When installing an EPDM rubber roof, it is always helpful when you have everything you could ever need for your installation process all in one place. This is where Rubber Roofing kits come in. Our complete Rubber Roofing Kits are all supplied in one piece and have a lifespan of up to 50 years. The full range of roofing kits contains everything you need for your next EPDM roofing project. Our flat rubber roofing kits look great and better still, our rubber roofing supplies come with a 20-year downloadable warranty. In this article, we are going to be covering the benefits of choosing a rubber roofing kit when installing your EPDM project.

What is an EPDM rubber roof kit?

Generally, rubber roof kits are suitable for a wide range of roof sizes and contain everything you need to successfully fit your own EPDM rubber roof. Our rubber roof kits from RubberRoofs include items such as a piece of firestone RubberCover EPDM that has been cut to your desired size, a water-based adhesive, a 4” roller frame & sleeve, a silicone sealant and detailed fitting instructions.

Rubber roofing has become increasingly popular within the DIY world. Compared to felt roofing, EPDM has proven to outperform and outlast felt, or any other type of roofing material. Felt roofing has been the DIY favourite for many years, but today, homeowners are looking for value for money over the long term in a sustainable solution to their roofing renovations. Firestone EPDM rubber offers the perfect solution with a range of DIY benefits.

What are the benefits of EPDM roofing and kits?

Rubber roofing kits hold many benefits and offer the user ease when it comes to installing their EPDM roof. These benefits include but are not limited to: 

  • Available in a kit to ensure the right materials

  • Laid in a single piece for ease of application – no joins

  • UV stable

  • Will not crack or perish

  • Environmentally friendly

  • Cold applied with water-based or bonding adhesive

  • Virtually maintenance-free

  • Can overlay current waterproofing (Providing the decking below is fine)

  • Outperforms roofing felt over its lifespan

  • Saves money in the long term

  • No waste with a rubber roof kit

By having access to just the right amount of tools and materials, rubber roof kits mean there is no wastage. With the full sheet of EPDM membrane included in the kit, it avoids having to deal with any joins when installing, making it a quicker and easier process. Joins are typically where DIYers can accidentally trap water and air bubbles, causing bulges and possible leaks in the roof. 

Our flat roof kits are supplied in one piece and have a lifespan of 50+ years. This means that you will never have to worry about replacing your kits, and the EPDM membrane will last up to as long as 50 years also!
