EPDM Roofing on a Flat Roof Extension | Save Money Over the Long Term with EPDMEPDM roofing is proving to be a cost-efficient method of replacing flat roof coverings all over the UK. Although the initial cost of installation can first appear higher than traditional, cheaper roof coverings such as tar paper or felt roofing, the long-term benefits mean that the cost vs. value ratio is unmatched by a long chalk.

Perfect for a DIY enthusiast to install at home, EPDM roofing offers confident and competent homeowners the chance to save money on installation costs. Fast and easier to apply than other systems, EPDM roofing also significantly cuts down on the time a professional roofer needs to get the job done if you’re engaging someone to do it for you.

Benefits of EPDM

We don’t need to delve far into EPDM to realise the benefits when compared to cheaper flat roofing materials. It has become almost an annual tradition for some DIY enthusiasts to replace the shed or garage roofing felt or to look at the porch again to make sure it is watertight before the weather changes. Year-on-year these costs mount up and over a lifetime of replacements you’re also looking at a lot of wasted roofing material that will end up in a landfill.

EPDM, on the other hand, is tough and durable, remaining reliably watertight and flexible over its entire lifespan. EPDM carries a life expectancy of more than 50 years and this has become one of the biggest reasons why professional trade roofers have been moving towards the single ply roofing sector as a sustainable alternative to traditional roofing.

The 50-year expected lifespan alone is a major benefit of EPDM over felt, but the performance puts the icing on the cake. Flexible and durable, EPDM membranes can elongate up to 300% and perform outstandingly well in a wide range of temperature fluctuations. Tried and tested in global climates on commercial, industrial and domestic properties, EPDM has a proven high-performance value that is unmatched in the sector.

For the DIYer, EPDM roofing offers the chance to tackle historically challenging tasks with ease. The Permaroof
flat roof kit removes the stress of ordering materials in the right quantities and the water-based adhesives take away the worry of working at height with dangerous substances typical of tar paper application. EPDM roofing systems are easier and safer to install for a competent DIYer with confidence.
