Please let me introduce our new EPDM rubber roofing system available on request to cover all sheds and flat roof gazebo’s. Over the years we search for new products that we can put our name to and can offer to our clients. The product has to be 100% correct and at an affordable realistic price or simply we do not entertain it, Firestone EPDM rubber roofing system came to us with a product I think fits the bill and is perfect for sheds and flat roof gazebo’s or flat roof lean-to’s. Yes Firestone the car and truck tyre manufacturer so a brand that we have all heard of and can trust to produce a quality product.
At the moment we offer a traditional covering known to all as roofing felt and our choice of felting is good high quality at 40kg grade asphalt this is the best you can buy. But all good products may come with some faults and roofing felt only comes in 1m wide strips which means lap joints where wind and rain may be able to find its way in over time. I am sure lots of people have come across this problem back in the UK on there sheds or garage flat roofs. Also asphalt is heavy and the heavier the felt the better grade but of course this additional weight can put strain on your structure.
Our new advanced system basically eliminates both these problems as we would aim to cover all structures in one to do away with any joints. Secondly this choice of covering is a lot lighter at only 1.4kg per square metre less than half of asphalt, so a lot less strain on your structure.
This system is good for more than just flat roof gazebo’s and shed’s, it can be used to cover old tiled areas on roofs that leak, flat garage roofs, to form guttering and so much more even linings in ponds due to its flexible system. Simply if you have a leak problem just ask and we can see what we can do for you?
Simply EPDM has been tested to withstand plus 50 degrees down to less than minus 50 degrees and was designed for places like Russia and Canada where temperatures reach +50 & -50. This system has a life expectancy of over 50 years, so simply easy to forget about once fitted and will still look great if you come to sell your property in the future.

To upgrade from felt is approx €13.50 a square metre extra on all our sheds and flat roof gazebo’s, we feel this is a worth while product to think about for a longer lasting structure and to do away with any joints that weather can work its way in. Please note this is an upgrade price and other projects will be priced accordingly.
If you have an old shed which needs covering simply get in touch by emailing, let us know where you are and the size of the project. We can then price it up for you very easily, of course any photo’s of the structure or area would be a great help if possible.
Also if you want to take on any job as a DIY project we are more than happy to assist in costs and help to carry out the project.
EPDM is basically extremely durable synthetic rubber roofing membrane and translates as (ethylene propylene diene terpolymer). It is used in buildings with minimum fall roofs or area’s in need of tanking all over the world. The rubber membrane is 1.4mm thick, suitable for most requirements although we can offer a thicker option at 1.8mm. Be very careful if shopping around as there are cheaper options available, and without you knowing they may only be 0.8mm or 1mm thick.
Maintenance is the question that everyone asks, and the answer is simply no maintenance is needed just simple commonsense sweep off or hose down from time to time when needed.
Once laid there is no need for additional protection as it is resistant to UV, rain and extremely hot weather.
EPDM has been tested against hail stone and due to its flexibility no damage has occurred through impact.
