How Long Does Rubber Roofing Last?

Rubber roofing is a popular choice for roofing on builds from garages to garden rooms, offering long-lasting protection from the elements. Low maintenance and effectiveness are qualities everyone should look for when choosing their roofing solution and with our rubber roofing options, you’ll get exactly that. They’re also a great investment, with a good quality rubber roof lasting up to 50 years.

As suppliers of high-quality flat roofing, we understand the demand for a good product and one that will last a long time whilst withstanding all kinds of weather. If you cut corners when it comes to choosing your roofing, you’ll likely find yourself forking out for a replacement in the not too distant future as there is no substitute for great quality rubber roofing. At Alvadac, we only supply the best quality products and carry out the most efficient installations to ensure one hundred per cent customer satisfaction.

Why you should choose rubber roofing

EPDM rubber roofing, which stands for ethylene propylene diene monomer, is single-ply flat roofing material. Due to the way it’s made, with a vulcanising process, the material is highly durable and perfect for an effective roofing solution. Once applied, the rubber roofing is perfect for a wide range of reasons including keeping out any rain and preventing dampness. No matter how much it rains, assuming you’ve chosen us to properly install the roof, no water will be able to get in. The same applies to the summer too, as the EPDM material is able to withstand an increase in temperatures without warping, ensuring the roofing remains correctly fixed in place.

Enjoy peace of mind knowing that your roof is able to withstand any weather condition and for a number of years. When compared with alternatives such as metal or plastic roofs, you begin to understand just how much better rubber roofing is as a long-term solution. For example, rubber roofing is a much better insulator than other options which can help lower your energy bill as it stops heat from escaping. It works the other way too, preventing the inside from getting too hot when the sun is beating down on the roof. This makes it an extremely environmentally friendly option, as it’s also made from recycled materials.

Due to the simplicity of the material, repair is extremely easy. The likelihood that you’ll need a repair is very low, but that being said, accidents do happen. If your rubber roofing has been penetrated or a tear has occurred, we can quickly and efficiently repair it by placing a sheet of the same EPDM rubber roofing over the damage and fixing it in place with a patching adhesive. This means that throughout the entire lifespan of your roof, costs will be kept low, making it a safe bet for the long-term protection of your buildings.

Our service doesn’t stop at the sale of a rubber roof, we’ll see it through until the end and send our expert team of roofers to properly fit it. For shed roofs, rubber roofs make a great choice as they will properly protect all of your items inside from harsh weather conditions if you use it for storage, or keep it nice and warm if you use it as an office or seating area. This will also help prevent the decay of your shed and increase its life expectancy due to the EPDM membrane preventing leakages and damp spots which can lead to wood rot.

You can benefit from the same rubber roofing system on your garage too, eradicating the need to fit extra heating in there. If you like to use your garage as a workspace or additional seating area, you may have noticed it can get rather cold, especially if you have a metal roof. With a rubber roof, you’ll benefit from much better insulation, making it much more comfortable to spend time in your garage and saving you money in the long run. As a cost-effective roofing solution, rubber roofs are the best option and will go the distance, no matter how intense the weather gets.
