We became an approved installer in 2005 and as trained, authorised
installers of Firestone /Rubber bond/ Classic bond/ EPDM Rubber we
highly recommend this system for your flat roof renewal or flat roof
replacement.

EPDM – Features & Benefits

Superior durability and flexibility
EPDM is an inert material and is resistant to the effects of UV
radiation and Ozone and as a result will not degrade. It will stretch
over 300% before it breaks. Once installed, you will have a flat roof
that is perfectly water tight and is guaranteed to stay that way.

Seamless roof – no joins

EPDM sheets in very large sizes so nearly all domestic flat roofs can
be covered in a single sheet of rubber. This means there are no joins
that can fail. Even flat roofs that are joined with one or more pieces
of rubber are permanently bonded together by a chemical reaction between
the rubber and the special adhesive to give a totally reliable
protective covering. We like to call this reaction ‘melding’.

Value for money – very low life-cycle cost – maintenance free

Relatively low installation costs combined with never having to
replace the roof again results in EPDM being extremely cost effective.
The roof requires little or no maintenance other than a quick hosing or
sweeping of leaves to keep it looking brand new.

Attractive appearance

EPDM is resistant to algae and moss growth. Moss cannot grow on EPDM
rubber as it is non porous. This means your roof will look as good in 20
years as as it did the day we fitted it.

Safe installation – flame free

No hot torches, boiling tar or welding equipment needed so risks of
fire are eliminated. The membrane is adhered to the flat roof deck with
special adhesives using a cold lay technique.

Rubber is resistant to fire

Rubber is Eco-friendly

Due to its superior life span and re-usability it has a very low
environmental impact. Greenpeace and the Green Building Digest recommend
EPDM Rubber as the Best Value sustainable eco-roofing.

The Firestone factory has achieved ISO 14001 certification for its environmental management system.
