Please also read this installation guide through in its entirety before starting.
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.
Preparing the shed roof
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.
Fixing the EPDM Rubber Roof Membrane
Fold back half of the EPDM Rubber Roof Membrane onto itself to expose the timber deck underneath.
Apply the WBA Deck Adhesive evenly over the roof deck with the Roller supplied.
With the adhesive still wet, roll the membrane back into position using a soft broom to ensure no air is trapped underneath the membrane and to ease out any creases.
Repeat the process for the other half of the roof.
Trimming the EPDM to size
Cut off any excess EPDM Rubber Roof Membrane using sharp scissors or a knife leaving approximately 50mm overhang.
Finishing the drip edges
Fold the membrane back on itself and fix using galvanised clout nails.
As an alternative you could install black metal shed edge trims which are available on our website
