New Installation Guide in our Library: Removing Creases from EPDM Rubber Roofing

Firestone RubberCover Flat Roof Resources | Permaroof NewsDiy-flat-roof is pleased to announce the arrival of a new installation guide in our resource library. Removing Creases from EPDM Rubber Roofing is now available to view online or download for free.

This latest guide will walk you through the process of how to remove creases in Firestone’s leading EPDM rubber roofing membrane. Although rare, instances of creasing do occasionally occur, and can happen in any number of circumstances, such as:

  • Incorrect storage of the membrane
  • Long-term membrane storage
  • Mishandling of the EPDM membrane
  • Accidental damage
  • Damage during transit in rare instances (contact us immediately if this is the case)

Creases in genuine Firestone EPDM rubber roofing membrane are easy to put right. The latest installation guide gives clear, concise instructions for the process with illustrations to highlight the correct method.

There are a couple of big no-no’s to take notice of, such as:

  • DO NOT use naked flames to heat the EPDM rubber membrane
  • DO NOT overheat the membrane in one spot for too long
  • DO NOT attempt to use sharp objects
  • ALWAYS use the correct tools
