    EPDM Rubber Roofing FAQ's

What does EPDM stand for in roofing?

EPDM is a rubber roofing membrane that is extremely durable and long-lasting.

EPDM stands for ethylene propylene diene terpolymer, with the primary two ingredients being ethylene and propylene.

The EPDM rubber membrane is a synthetic rubber that is used in a number of applications because of the advantages it offers.

As the EPDM rubber is made from synthetic rubber, the rubber membrane boasts a number of benefits that makes it an incredibly popular material for flat roofs. These include:

  • Lightweight properties.
  • Environmentally friendly.
  • 100% Recyclable
  • Waterproof.
  • Temperature resistant.
  • 50-year life expectancy.

Because of how inexpensive it costs to produce a rubber membrane, EPDM flat roofs are becoming increasingly common for homeowners to install across the UK.

Without needing any specialist tools, an EPDM rubber roof can be installed quickly, even if you don’t have any experience with installing a roof. How to install a flat roof?
