If you have a North Somerset garage with a flat roof then there is a good chance it may have been constructed using felt or bitumen. While this is a popular choice for many, there is a much better alternative that is far more durable and of superior quality. If you want the best for your North Somerset garage roof, whether that be repairs, maintenance or replacement then read on:
EPDM roofing membrane
As opposed to the previous options we mentioned, the EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer) roofing membrane is specifically used in flat roofs because of its durability and longevity. Made from engineered polymers, its flexibility means that it won’t crack, tear or split and in fact will expand and contract with the change in weather conditions. The material is so durable that it actually has a lifespan of over 50 years. This means that once you’ve had it done, you are highly unlikely to ever need it replacing again.
Installation of EPDM garage roofs
In many instances, the new EPDM membrane can be installed over the existing felt roof ensuring minimum disruption and an easy installation process. There are less visible joints which means a much smoother finish.
Benefits of EPDM for your North Somerset garage roof
While there may be no visible damage to your garage roof or perhaps it hasn’t been long since you had it repaired, there are a number of advantages of taking pro-active measures and having an EPDM garage roof installed. If you keep your vintage car, beloved motorcycle or valuable tools in there, you won’t want to take a chance that you may have a leak which could cause damage to the contents of your garage. EPDM is the perfect choice for a number of reasons:
- Hardwearing and durable – lasts for upwards of 50 years with a 25-year guarantee
- A smooth finish with less joints than felt roofs and a better aesthetic
- Moss resistance so no unsightly green/yellow growth making it maintenance free
- Reduces heat in summer and cold in winter
- Quick to lay and can be laid over existing felt
- Breathable material reducing condensation
