Q. Do I need any specialist
tools to install the rubber flat roofing waterproofing system?
A. No, absolutely no specialised tools are necessary and
because of the all cold process, no equipment like gas bottles
or torches are needed as you would expect when installing felt,
asphalt or bituminous roofing materials!
Q. Do I need to replace or
renew any timber or decking?
A. Only if any woodwork is water damaged, rotten or has lost
is structural integrity to support an EPDM flat roof!
Q. Do you have to remove the
old felt covering material?
A. Only if it is degraded, damaged, cracked or has rough
edges. The EPDM can lay directly over the old felting material
using grotextile underlay as a barrier the substrate and the
rubber membrane waterproofing sealant sealer!
Q. Does the roof coating and
material need to be perfectly dry before installation or repairs?
A. Your roof will never be perfectly dry as all flat roofs
have a certain amount of water retention although the drier
the better. The rubber membrane breathes due to it being vapour
permeable allowing flat roof ventilation!
Q Can is be covered by wooden
decking, flags or concrete?
A. Yes you can flag or deck over it for use on a veranda
patio! EPDM is an excellent seal for block and beam etc!
Q. What if I need assistance
whilst doing the installation?
A. No problem! just refer back to the complementary DVD sent
with your order which shows you all fitting methods. Still need
a hand, then do not hesitate to call our service hotline where
