Why Rubber Roofing is Cost-Effective

If you are preparing for a new build or looking to re-roof your property, rubber roofing is a very popular choice for anything from garages to extensions. But why is rubber roofing one of the most cost-effective solutions for your flat roofing in Yorkshire?

As rubber roofing experts, Alvadac is here to explain the benefits of EPDM rubber roofing, and how it can save you some money along the way.

The benefits of rubber roofing

  • Cost-effective to install 

Firstly, an EPDM rubber roofing system is incredibly cost effective to install. This is because the roofing installation is done by laying a single sheet of EPDM rubber, which is bespoke to your roof, and secured with a specialised bonding adhesive by our rubber roofing experts.

  • Long lifespan 

Whereas concrete tiles might typically last 15-20 years before they need replacing, an EPDM rubber roof can last for several decades. When installed by an experienced professional roofer, you may never have to experience any cracking or leaking.

For an extra bit of peace of mind, Alvadac flat roofing suppliers and roofing Yorkshire is proud to offer a 20-year guarantee on our EPDM rubber roofing solutions, so that you can rest assured it will stand the test of time.

  • Requires little upkeep 

Another benefit of EPDM rubber flat roofing is that it requires very little maintenance or upkeep, which helps you to reduce the costs associated with investing in a new roofing installation. If it ever does need repairing, it is quick and simple for our rubber roofing experts to solve the issue.

  • Keeps up with extreme temperatures

When the weather drops in the winter and raises during the summer, the extreme changes in temperature can cause something called thermal shock to occur. With ordinary tiles, this can cause cracks to appear. However, EPDM rubber roofing is very resistant to thermal shock, ensuring that it is able to withstand all kinds of weather conditions.

  • Weather-resistant

It is a common misconception that flat roofing is not suitable for all weather conditions. On the contrary, rubber flat roofing is completely watertight and weatherproof, with a slight gradient that protects your home from water damage. In addition to this, EPDM rubber roofing is also UV resistant.

  • Helps to reduce your energy bill

Compared to traditional roofing materials such as plastic composites or metal, EPDM rubber roofing is extremely thermally efficient. This means that it helps to keep the heat in your home during the winter and keep the heat out over the summer. This can save you a significant sum of money on your energy bills.
