Features of Firestone Rubber Roofs
Firestone RubberCover™ EPDM membranes offer outstanding resistance to UV radiation which can often be an issue with flat roofing membranes. Also what holds it aside from many other cold application flat roofing products is that it can be applied in high or low temperatures – you can stand on the membrane immediately, so tiling crossing points or general finishing can be executed straight away and often smaller roofs can be completed in one day.
Firestone rubber has a life expectancy of up to 50 years. There are thousands of roofs globally standing testament to the length of Firestone EPDM membrane’s tested performance. This is not a new product or system, so it literally has been tried and tested.
Firestone RubberCover™ EPDM membranes require no real maintenance, once installed. Once the job is finished, you can rest assured without worrying about your flat roof. Rubber roofs are also recognized by surveyors as longer lasting, so a rubber roof can even add value to your property and make it easier to sell.
Seamless Firestone RubberCover™ EPDM membranes can be cut to order in large, seamless sheets of up to 6.10m in width. Most small household roofs can for that reason be covered with one single sheet, without any seaming on site as all seams are factory formed.
Firestone RubberCover™ EPDM is a great method of recycling and when used as an overlay system, will save on landfill.
Installation of Firestone RubberCover™ EPDM membrane is fast and clean and requires no heat and therefore no hot works permit. It requires no flame, as the membrane is always fully adhered to the substrate using a cold applied mastic.
Highly flexible Firestone RubberCover™ EPDM membranes always remains very flexible, even at low temperatures and following ageing. This means it can deal with all weather variations and be fitted all year long. The membrane has over 300% elasticity to accommodate for thermal and building movements.
