IS EPDM ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY?

Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer (EPDM) membranes are incredibly environmentally friendly and offer a range of benefits for your flat roof. If you’re a homeowner in the UK looking to lead a sustainable, energy efficient life, then rubber roofing is for you.

The International Kyoto Ecology Agreement recognises and recommends EPDM as the best value sustainable, environmentally friendly roofing material available today.

Popular roof membranes from brands such as FlexiProof One-PieceFlexiProof Fleece-Backed and Shed Rubber have several environmental friendly benefits, including:

  • 100% Recyclable. Because the EPDM is made from rubber, the sheet of membrane is 100% recyclable after use.

Furthermore, it’s becoming more common for tyre manufacturers donate tires that are recycled and used to create EPDM.

  • Durability. Unlike other roofing materials, a roof membrane can last in excess of 50 years with little.

It has minimal maintenance throughout its lifetime. An EPDM flat roof doesn’t degrade, is extremely weatherproof and isn’t prone to moss or algae growing on it.

  • Fantastic Insulation. The rubber membrane used for an EPDM roof has desirable insulation properties.

This helps keep heat inside your home, meaning you can save money on your heating bills.

  • Recyclable rainwater. Because of the rubber properties and surface, rainwater isn’t polluted by the membrane.

This allows you to harvest and recycle rainwater and with our range of drain products, you can take a step into a more sustainable lifestyle.
