Get Your Roof Ready for Summer

Summer is finally here, and as the weather becomes increasingly hotter, now is a great time to get your roof ready for summer. EPDM rubber flat roofing is the greatest roofing material for weathering the summer heat as it can withstand both searing and freezing conditions.

Why EPDM rubber roofs are a good option for hot weather applications

EPDM rubber flat roofing is a fantastic roof solution for all weather types. This roof type is almost completely weatherproof since the rubber compound of EPDM is pliable in all extreme weather conditions, be it extreme heat or cold and windy weather.

Put simply, EPDM rubber is the ultimate alternative to other roofing materials because it can withstand hot and cold conditions much more effectively than any other roof solution.

While EPDM rubber can withstand heavy rain and wind, it is also effective in combating UV rays and radiations from the sun, which can be harmful. Since rubber flat roofing is extremely weatherproof, the risk of leaks and cracks is illuminated, protecting your home.

Although we don’t get the most sun and blazing heat here in the north of the UK, EPDM roofing is still a great option for weathering the summer heat.

The benefits of EPDM flat rubber roofing

When it comes to roofing materials and solutions, EPDM rubber is a showstopper that is levels ahead of traditional flat roof options. EPDM requires little to no maintenance when compared to other flat roofing materials. The thickness of the rubber membranes makes them extremely durable. EPDM is also very resistant to ageing and has a life expectancy that spans up to around 50 years.

EPDM’s rubber composition is almost fully weatherproof and remains malleable in high heat and cold temperatures, reducing any risks of cracks or leaks in your contemporary house.
