Why are EPDM roofing systems popular for DIY?

EPDM flat roofing materials are a far cry from traditional flat roof products. Felt, tar paper and other bitumen-based systems are becoming less common as the benefits of EPDM membranes are realised.
 

Easy to apply

EPDM membranes are typically laid in a single sheet for most domestic projects. This is ideal for DIY installation, as there are no joins to worry about.
 

Basic tools

For preparation of the roof and application of the new membrane, just a few simple tools are required. A domestic brush, rollers or pad to apply adhesive and penny rollers to help with the edges.
 

Cold-applied adhesive

EPDM membranes are adhered with a cold system using water-based adhesives and bonding adhesive. Traditional methods often require the use of hot substances or tools for application and this is a big advantage for the EPDM system for DIY use.

EPDM roofing systems are not difficult to repair if they become accidentally damaged, using patching and adhesives. The method is not dissimilar to repairing a puncture. The seal must be perfect, however, to ensure continued reliability and if the repair is a critical one, make sure you’re confident in your DIY skills.

Confidence is an important consideration for any DIYer thinking of taking on a critical home improvement project. Safety is the top priority and as you’re working at height, even if on a single-storey extension, garage roof or shed, make sure safety is at the forefront.

If you find you’re not confident about completing your roof repair or replacement, we have a network of qualified, approved professional roofers and are happy to connect you for free via our installer network.
