EPDM Roofing Calculator



When it comes to house extensions, garages, sheds, and other smaller buildings, it’s typical for the flat roof to be protected by asphalt, felt, or bitumen. However, EPDM rubber (ethylene propylene diene monomer) is now the perfect solution for flat roof repairs, and many homeowners are enjoying the 50-year life span.

Unlike traditional flat roof materials, the membrane or sheet is cost-effective and lightweight. It is fast becoming an increasingly popular flat roof material for UK homeowners, and for good reason.

  • FlexiProof roof systems offer many benefits, including durability and water resistance. Using rubber roofing membranes as your chosen flat roofing solution can save you time, effort, and money.

We’re committed to helping homeowners, DIYers, flat roofers, and roofing systems fitters find the perfect rubber roofing products, so we’ve curated a wide range of flat roofs and related products.

One of the main benefits of opting for rubber sheets for flat roof replacement or repair is how incredibly easy they are to install. Traditional flat roof materials such as felt require heat for them to bond. As such, you must use tools like a Roofing Torch, which can be dangerous and time-consuming.

  • Our EPDM flat roofs don’t require heat so that you can install them quickly and safely. You won’t need a Roofing Torch or a heat source.
