Rubber such as EPDM (ethylene-propylene-diene monomer) are renowned for their strength and durability, they are also known to be excellent for thermal insulation and water resistance. EPDM membranes offer unmatched resistance to ozone, UV radiation and high or low temperatures making them very versatile as to where they are used. Hence the life expectancy of EPDM rubber is 50 years plus and it comes with a full manufacturer’s guarantee with the added bonus that EPDM rubber roofing dramatically lowers the carbon footprint of a structure in a number of ways.
The lifespan of a rubber roof is up to 5 times that of a felt roof and 2-3 times longer than an asphalt roof. EPDM is installed in an exceptionally more eco-friendly way, without the lengthy use of heat and flames. Combined with these properties are the facts that EPDM rubber sheet roofing provides excellent thermal properties and is an outstanding sealant against water penetration. EPDM membranes require no or only little maintenance once installed. This feature, combined with the membrane’s inherent durability and competitive installed cost, result in a very low costs over its lifetime.
GRP roofing is a cold applied system that is ideally suited to both simple and complex structural designs and can be rapidly applied and cured to prevent water ingress giving total protection. The weld-free design gives a continuous high performance covering. Available in a range of colours to suit the project, ideal for balconies, walkways, gutters and valleys and any domestic roof. The finish can simulate lead or other traditional finishes.High performance is achieved as the GRP is made up of a combination of modified polyester base resins, emulsion bound chop strand mat and a finishing coat of pre-pigmented topcoat. When cured GRP is guaranteed to provide performance beyond that of more traditional bitumen or polymer based waterproofing coatings.
