What is The Life Expectancy of EPDM Rubber Roofs?
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.
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.

How do you use Skyguard Bond & Seal Mastic?
When applying this product to the deck perimeter ensure the edges of the membrane are lifted away from the area before applying a consistent amount of the product to the substrate.
Once the product is applied, allow the edge of the membrane to come into contact with the product. Use your hands to press the membrane into the product to ensure the membrane is secure.
It is important to check that the membrane is fully bonded around the perimeter before continuing to apply any timber cladding or trims.
How Do You Use Skyguard Water Based Deck Adhesive?
Skyguard Water Based Deck Adhesive can be used straight out of the tub making it a great, no-nonsense product.
Install this product using a roller to ensure it is distributed consistently throughout the roof deck. We recommend purchasing our 100mm Mini Roller alongside this product for an easy application.
What Temperatures Can A Rubber Roof Be Installed In?
We recommentd a minimum tempereture of 5 degrees C for EPDM installation. This is due the the WBA adhesive being water based and lower temperetures may cause the adhesive to freeze over and fail.
