Trade and DIY roofers all over the UK are turning to rubber roofs in favour of simplicity and longevity over traditional roofing materials such as outdated felt. The benefits of rubber roofing membranes far outweigh felt (tar paper), not least for the expected lifespan of around 50 years. When compared to traditional materials, EPDM is far superior, in terms of ease of application, cost-over-lifespan and waterproofing abilities.
Since Permaroof began supplying EPDM almost two decades ago, rubber roofs have become an industry favourite and are increasing in popularity significantly for both trade roofers, who have been looking for sustainable solutions to replace outdated materials for years, and DIY roofers, who haven’t been able to tackle their own roof projects due to complex systems, quantity doubts and lack of industry support.
