An EPDM flat rubber roof can be painted on however it is important to do so correctly. Because the rubber membrane used for an EPDM flat roof is made from rubber, the typical colour is dark grey or black.
Before continuing with painting your EPDM flat roof, we strongly recommend making sure the rubber membrane is clean and cleared of any debris. Our weathered membrane cleaner is designed to thoroughly clean the durable rubber surface.
After the roof membrane has been cleared of any debris, you should make sure that the EPDM roof hasn’t been damaged or worn.
The type of paint used is incredibly important to ensure that your flat roof remains protected all-year long. You need to make sure you choose paint that’s durable, can settle on rubber, can hold up against direct sunlight and can withstand all types of weather.
An acrylic coating specifically designed for rubber roofing would be ideal.
If you’ve found any other type of paint you want to use, we recommend contacting the manufacturer of the rubber membrane or give us a call on 01306776626 and we’ll be able to help.
You can begin to pour the paint out onto the roof and begin to use a paint roller or a broom.
It’s recommended that you apply at least two coats of paint onto the roof membrane and make sure it’s painted evenly.
Make sure you plan how you want to paint the roof and that you don’t leave yourself cornered. Afterwards, leave the paint to dry.
