The rubber roof EPDM membrane is sold by the running metre from large pre-joined sheets starting at 0.5m in width and increasing in 0.5m increments up to 30.5 metres in length, by 15.25 metres in width. This means no on-site joining is required as long as the roof does not exceed these measurements and makes the ClassicBond EPDM the best for quick and easy installation.
ClassicBond EPDM is available in two thicknesses:
Why Choose ClassicBond®?
The ClassicBond roof system is designed to be cost effective and much faster than traditional roofing systems. For most applications the membrane is cut to the size of your roof and supplied as one single piece, trimmed to size and finished off with the correct drip, kerb edge and wall up-stand trims.
Due to the nature of the material it will easily bend and conform to the contours of your roof and is applied using adhesives which means no flames or hot liquids making it a safer option for installers and home-owners.
As EPDM is not affected by extremes of temperature the membrane will not crack, peel or split and is covered by our 20 Year Manufacturers membrane guarantee.

EPDM Rubber roofs have a 50 year life expectancy.
EPDM has been in commercial use since the 1960s. And many of those roofs are still around today.
One of the most evident benefits of EPDM rubber roofing is that it can be repaired very quickly and easily, allowing you to catch a problem before it turns into something much bigger! Supplied as a 6 inch strip, any small hole or rip can be sealed effectively with our repair patch kits. This easy-to-use patch, primer and brush combination will ensure you can safely patch any minor damage to the roof.

Along with a life expectancy of 50 years and beyond, EPDM rubber can stand up to quite some force from outside elements, in our video below we explore what different objects falling on the rubber will do to it and how much damage it takes to actually penetrate the membrane! Prepare to be surprised!
Occasionally, bubbles and blisters can appear around the perimeter of the EPDM rubber roof just after it's been fitted. There are a few reasons why this can happen, the Contact Adhesive could have been applied too thick, or if it has not been allowed enough time to properly tack-off. Luckily we can share a few tips to help avoid this potential problem, check our video for an in-depth explanation.
EPDM rubber membrane is an extremely tough material that will easily handle light foot traffic, such as when it's being installed. However, it is important to make sure no sharp objects are introduced onto the membrane from boots or tools, check our video for a proper explanation of how to make sure you don't set a foot wrong
Whilst EPDM rubber membrane has no right side up, you will notice only one side has writing on it, this is from the manufacturer and has some information about the rubber. You can lay this side down to the decking for a cleaner looking finish, this can be useful if the roof can be seen from a window for example.
Both the 1.2mm and 1.5mm EPDM rubber membranes are perfect for residential and commercial projects alike. 1.2mm membrane is a trusted product by our roofing customers and our most popular item for a good reason. 1.5mm membrane tends to lay a little easier due to the thickness and can also provide a smoother looking finished flat roof. We would recommend 1.5mm if there is going to be anything overlayed on top of the rubber like decking, screed and tiles or even a green roof.
If its going to be a few weeks before you fit the roof, we would suggest unrolling the membrane and re-rolling it longways, this will help prevent any creases forming. The adhesives and trims need to be stored indoors before fitting, rather than leaving them outside, as they can be affected by temperature fluctuations. Check out our video below for a full explanation from Sam!

For the most part each section of the installation is easy, Gluing the membrane down with both adhesives is very straightforward and securing the trims and clips to the perimeter is as well. Watch our video for a detailed step by step breakdown so you can follow along!
Fitting a rubber roof to a garden building can be a very quick job if you have some basic knowledge about the preparation and correct steps to take. It can take a professional less than 1.5 hours to fit a garden room roof!
Choosing the right boards for your job can be daunting with many different options available to use for flat roof decking, however some are much more highly recommended than others, in our video below, Sam covers the key differences between the most commonly used boards, OSB3 and S-Grade Plywood.
Having just had your roll of EPDM rubber delivered, you may be faced with exactly how to get it up onto the roof! Without some heavy equipment (which we certainly don't all have access to!) it can be a daunting task! Luckily, Sam has put together this short video so he can share a few genius tricks to help you get that heavy roll onto your flat roof.
Creases appear as hard ridge lines in the rubber due to the weight of the huge roll that is sent to us from the manufacturer. These can easily be removed from the rubber by gently applying heat to the crease and flattening it by hand, it must then be adhered to the deck using contact adhesive rather than water based deck adhesive
