(If you are replacing an existing shed roof covering)
Carefully remove the existing timber edge trims (fascias). Put them to one side if they are in good condition so you can re-fit them later.
Remove the old roof covering (usually felt), remove any exposed nails, all sharp surfaces and repair/replace any rotten deck boards. We recommend using OSB3 board if you need to fully replace them.
Ensure that your deck surface is clean, dry, frost free and free from dust, grease, loose material and other contaminants.
Unwrap the EPDM Rubber Roof Membrane and place unfolded on the shed roof, ensuring you have equal coverage.
Wait for approximately half an hour for the EPDM to relax.
