Rubber Roofs Made Easy with Flat Roof Kits

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the UK are turning to rubber roofs in favour of simplicity and longevity over traditional roofing materials such as outdated felt.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in popularity significantly for both trade roofers, who have been looking for sustainable solutions to replace outdated materials for years, and DIY roofers, who haven’t been able to tackle their own roof projects due to complex systems, quantity doubts and lack of industry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.

Flat roof kits from Permaroof

Permaroof introduced flat roof kits to make the installation of rubber roofs fast, simple and cost-effective. Our flat roof kits include everything needed for EPDM application and full instructions. This is backed up by our resource library which contains an extensive range of videos, PDF tutorials and step-by-step guides for installing rubber roofs.

In the online shop, we stock a wide range of standard-sized flat roof kits, perfect for shed and garage roofing. Additional membrane is included for overhang, so there should be no issues. Permaroof-in-a-box flat roof kits have changed the way roofers all over the UK view their projects.

Should your project fall outside the ‘standard-size’ bracket, Permaroof offer a couple of ways in which you can work out the required materials:

  • Kit Builder App – This free online tool automatically works out your quantities and builds a flat roof kit for you. You need measurements and can input specific details about your roof design and adjoining properties or buildings. Try Permaroof Kit for yourself today.
  • Order a bespoke kit online in our shop – we have a service where you can enter your own size up to 8m2.
  • Call us! – Permaroof teams can help with EPDM quantities and tailor you a bespoke kit.

We also offer industry-renowned EPDM application training courses for both rubber roof membrane and liquid rubber systems. Training can increase the confidence of DIY roofers and can help the trade roofer to expand the business – find out more about trade opportunities for rubber roofs professionals in 2019.

The UKs Leading Flat Roof System for DIY

When looking for a flat roof system suitable for DIY, homeowners are hard-pressed to find any system better than EPDM rubber roofing in today’s marketplace. DIY roofing has traditionally been tricky for all those but highly skilled DIYers. Since the introduction of the EPDM flat roof system, and the handy flat roof kit, DIY flat roofing has become more accessible for more handy homeowners than ever before.

Why is the EPDM flat roof system so suitable for DIY application?

EPDM rubber membranes are highly flexible and fitted in a single piece. Joins are historically the worst parts of a system to tackle, as joins must be sealed perfectly to ensure there is no water ingress. When using other types of flat roof system, such as tar paper, joins require skills and often hot substances to create a good seal.

EPDM systems are fitted using water-based adhesives, removing traditional hazards, and because the membrane fits in a single sheet in most cases, there are no joins to worry about. For larger projects that do require joining, EPDM systems follow a simple, clear and effective process for sealing, suitable for a confident DIY enthusiast to tackle.

Permaroof’s DIY flat roofing resource centre is packed with information and advice, tutorials and demonstrations. Download PDFs, watch videos or read industry white papers – everything is free of charge.

How flat roof kits have made projects easier for DIY

Another great benefit of EPDM flat roof systems is that they can be easily bought online in our shop in standard-sized, pre-measured and pre-prepared kits that contain everything you need in exactly the right quantity – no waste, no guesswork. We have a range of flat roof kits specifically designed for shed roofing and garage roofing, and for bespoke projects, such as green roofing or extension projects, we offer a custom-cutting and kit building service for our customers.

EPDM flat roof systems are leading the way for roofing in the DIY sector. Single-ply roofing membranes have been growing in popularity for some years in the UK, and Permaroof are the UKs premier flat roof supplier, offering superior customer service and great prices for all our EPDM flat roof systems and accessories.

Record Sales of Liquid EPDM Rubber at Permaroof

Permaroof UK Ltd, Derby: Permaroof UK Ltd is enjoying record success with its Permaroof500 liquid EPDM rubber roofing systems. Sales have gone through the roof in the last quarter, and are showing no signs of slowing, even as the winter approaches.

The Permaroof500 liquid EPDM rubber roofing system offers both trade and DIY roofers the chance to effectively waterproof and protect most types of roofing with a simple-to-use, 100% effective innovative product.

Permaroof500 liquid rubber is suitable for use on

• Wood roof decking
• Concrete roofing, steps and balconies
• Corrugated sheets
• Metal roofing
• Lead
• Asbestos

Liquid EPDM systems can make life easier for those roofers that find themselves with odd-shaped roofing that cannot be covered with an EPDM membrane, or tight spaces where installation of such would prove difficult. Liquid EPDM can be brushed or rollered into the tightest of corners to provide adequate cover and prevent leaking.

The introduction of liquid EPDM has brought another layer of innovation to roofing, but it can also be used to make safe slippery surfacing with the addition of an anti-slip medium, either directly to the (still-wet) surface, or added to the product before application. This means that safe paths, walkways, terraces, garden steps, balconies and even car parking areas can easily be created.

For trade roofing professionals wishing to add Permaroof500 liquid EPDM systems to their business offerings, Permaroof offer superior industry support and training, and the chance to become a valuable part of the Permaroof brand.
