    EPDM Rubber Roofing FAQ's

How do you fit a rubber roof?

Installing an EPDM flat roof rubber membrane is far easier than a traditional roof. When done correctly, a roof membrane can be expected to last inexcess of 50 years. That’s why it’s the number one choice for homeowners.

We have broken down the installation of the Flexi Proof rubber roofing membrane into 5 easy steps.

1) Relaxation Time for the Rubber Membrane

Once the Flexi Proof EPDM membrane has been transported to your property, it’s important to unroll the membrane over the substrate (roof) in the desired position.

For the next hour or so, any creases in the synthetic rubber membrane should gradually drop out.

If you’re planning on installing an EPDM roof in colder months, we recommend storing the rubber membrane in room temperature to help speed the process.

2) Begin to Open, Stir and Prepare the Water Based Deck Adhesive

Carefully fold half the rubber membrane on top of itself, taking caution not to create any wrinkles. This gives you half the surface to begin to apply the water based deck adhesive to it.

If you’re applying the EPDM rubber membrane onto non pourous surface, we strongly recommend using contact bonding adhesive to guarantee the best results.

3) Begin to Apply the Water Based Deck Adhesive to the Surface

By using a roller, you should begin to evenly apply the adhesive onto the surface. Ensuring that you leave a 100mm gap around the edge that will be bonded with the contact bonding adhesive. The adhesive must be applied to 100% of the surface and there shouldn’t be any puddles.

We also offer a professional installation kit that has everything you need for installing your rubber roof.

4) Roll the Rubber Membrane onto the Coated Substrate

After half the substrate has been correctly coated evenly, you should roll the membrane onto the surface. To make sure no wrinkles form, we recommend rolling from the middle towards the edge.

As soon as the roof membrane is pressed down, begin to broom the membrane sheet. This will allow you to achieve the best possible adhesion for the rubber membrane and surface.

5) Begin to Apply the other side of the Rubber Membrane

Begin to repeat steps 3 and 4 again for the other side of the rubber membrane. Afterwards, broom over the entire membrane for one final sweep.
