Roofing Jobs using EPDM Rubber

A roof refurbishment job in Gresford, Wrexham

The job involved stripping off the old roof covering, and replacing with EPDM rubber.

To improve water drainage from the flat roof, we created a fall by placing firings on to the joists. We then added new insulation between the joists and layed new OSB sterling boards, which are ideal both for providing a strong roof and to provide good adhesion for the EPDM adhesive.

The customer specified a warm roof with Rubber finish.

After taking off the existing roof we inserted 150mm roll insulation then we put a 2" fall using firings, and boarded with OSB. Then we fitted 100mm insulation boards, screwed OSB boards on top 
and finally glued on the EPDM rubber sheets.
