How EPDM Changed DIY

Owning your own home is exciting and has a whole range of benefits. However, it can come with some drawbacks. If there is anything that goes wrong, that needs replacing or that you want to change, then you are going to need to either find someone to do it for you, or grab your tool box and do-it-yourself.

It is no secret that DIY is big business and it is something that many homeowners are going to tackle at some point. However, the type of projects that you take on will really depend on your own skill level. There are plenty of materials, tools and equipment out there that are designed to make DIY that little bit easier to do. For flat roofing, this comes in the form of EPDM.

EPDM roofing has changed the DIY market for homeowners and here are just some of the reasons why.

EPDM is fast and easy to apply

DIY can be hard work, especially when it comes to roofing. Which means that you need to find ways that make it a little bit easier. EPDM roofing is one of the easiest materials to work with when it comes to roofing.

You don’t need to have a wide range of tools, and membranes are typically applied in a single sheet, so there are commonly no joins to make. Homeowners with the confidence, a head for heights and good DIY skills can address flat roofing with EPDM.

EPDM roofing has an unmatched life expectancy

When you have taken the time and the effort to use EPDM roofing in your home, then you want to make sure that it is built to last. The last thing that you want is for it to end up needing to be replaced or repaired in a short space of time.

The great thing about EPDM roofing is that it is durable and long lasting with an expected lifespan of more than 50 years. It will stand the test of time, it will resist different weather situations, and it can also stand up to UV rays too.

It is environmentally friendlier than most traditional roofing materials

We are all much more aware of the importance of taking care of our planet as much as we can in these modern times. We are all looking for alternatives that are environmentally friendly. This even applies to the choices we make when tackling DIY.

EPDM roofing is made from recycled materials, which means that it is kinder to the environment and will result in much less of a carbon footprint being left than some of the other forms of roofing. It can be fully recycled at the end of its lifespan and its longevity alone means that it will simply stay in place when other materials fail.

You can buy it ready made in kit-form

One of the best things about EPDM roofing is that it can be bought in a kit.

Having a kit means that you are not only going to have everything that you need, ready to go, but also that you won’t waste money on overbuying materials or find that you run out without actually getting to the end of the project.
