Installation of Membranes

Laying our EPDM membranes is an easy task for the accomplished DIY-er. Below we outline the various steps required to install your brand new rubber roof.

Step 1

Ensure deck is dry and clean.

Step 2

Position membrane on the roof and allow to relax for 30-45 minutes, slightly longer in colder temperatures.

Step 3

Fold back one half of the rubber and apply an even coat of water based adhesive to the deck using roller and sleeve.

Step 4

Mate the rubber to the adhesive immediately and use a soft broom to sweep out any air bubbles.

Step 5

Repeat the process for the other side.

Step 6

Thoroughly sweep roof.

Step 1

Carefully remove tiles and battens and place to one side.

Step 2

Fold the felt underlay up and tuck under existing tiles.

Step 3

Apply a thin coat of contact adhesive to the rubber membrane and lay board.

Step 4

Allow both surfaces to dry and, starting from the bottom, mate together, working the rubber into any angle changes.

Step 5

Reinstate the felt underlay and battens over the rubber.

Step 6

Reinstall the tiles.

Step 1

Allow 150mm overhang onto tiles.

Step 2

Dress lead into place 6” onto tiles, 3” onto the deck. We recommend using minimum 9” Code 4 lead cut into 1200mm lengths max.

Step 3

Fix into position using screws.

Step 4

Apply Quick Prime plus to lead and rubber approx. 160mm wide using Quickscrubber pad and handle. Allow to go touch dry.

Step 5

Centralize the 6” batten cover strip and carefully remove release paper applying downward pressure. Use silicone roller to seal.
