Will My EPDM Membrane Have A Join?
All membranes do have manufactures joins as supplied to us. Depending on the spacing of the joins and the size of the piece being cut off the roll sometimes there is no manufacturers join in the membrane.
All EPDM membranes whether it is Firestone, ClassicBond or SKYGUARD have these joins and they are unavoidable, however, the big advantage is that it is supplied to you in one piece as our website states which means you don't have to do any onsite joins where workmanship could be a factor.
Does It Have To Be Dry For EPDM Roofing To Be Laid?
EPDM membranes require the substrate to be dry prior to installation so that the adhesive & primers can effectively bond the rubber to the roof deck. EPDM products will not adhere to wet or damp surfaces. It is important to bear in mind that trapped moisture within the deck may vaporize and negatively affect the performance of the membrane.
