Help and advice from experienced flat roofers
Flat roofs are particularly good for smaller structures, such as extensions, dormers, porches and garages. A flat roof is basically a horizontal base fixed to the building's ceiling joists and then covered with a waterproof membrane. To enable rainwater to drain from the roof, a flat roof is slightly pitched by just a couple of degrees.
If you have a flat roof, you’ll probably be aware that the building is only as good as the roofing membrane that covers it. Leaks can happen. However, by using an EPDM rubber roofing membrane for your flat roof extension – rather than felt, bitumen or asphalt that will deteriorate over time – you can ensure your extension remains weatherproof and watertight for years.
An EPDM rubber roofing membrane is flexible, stretches and will accommodate typical building movement, an important consideration for any flat roof extension. And where other roof membranes will last only 10 years or so, EPDM has been proven to remain effective for 50 years. Not only is installation fast and easy, you won’t have to worry about your flat roof again!
Use our EPDM Calculator to decide on the size of EPDM rubber sheet required for your flat roof extension along with all the glues and edge trims you might need. Usually you only need one piece of EPDM rubber as it is available in sizes up to 15m x 30m, making your job even easier.
At Rubber Roofing Direct, we recommend using a 1 piece EPDM Rubber roofing membrane for your flat roof extension as it is easy to install and you don't need to worry about doing any on site seams.
Roofs stay watertight when you install an EPDM Rubber Roof. We recommend that you inspect your flat roof twice a year, preferably in the spring and autumn, to arrange the clearance of leaves, debris and dirt that may prevent proper drainage.
