The Firestone rubber flat roof system is an advanced type of roof covering which is one of several flat roof options. The covering used is EPDM or ‘ethylene propylene diene monomer’ which is a type of synthetic rubber known for its weather resistant properties.
This rubber is able to withstand heat, cold and other weather conditions and has excellent insulation qualities as well. It has been used extensively in the USA for more than 40 years and is also the most commonly used single ply roofing membrane in the world.
The Firestone rubber EPDM system is used on small domestic flat roof buildings such as outhouses, extensions and garages which are ideally suited to this type of covering. Plus the majority of domestic flat roofs are rectangular shaped which means a straightforward process with little fuss.
We will cut the rubber EPDM sheet to fit the exact specifications of your roof. This sheet is flexible so molds itself to the shape of your roof and is both UV and ozone resistant. This means a long lasting, waterproof and weatherproof covering which is reliable and easy to maintain.
