A Norfolk Homeowner’s Guide to EPDM Roofs

Norfolk’s beautiful landscapes, quirky towns and villages deserve equally stunning and reliable roofs. If you’re a homeowner considering a flat roof replacement or a single-storey extension, EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer) roofs are a fantastic option. Let’s delve into what makes EPDM roofs so well-suited for our corner of England.

Built to withstand the varied Norfolk weather

Norfolk’s location brings unpredictable weather, from glorious almost Mediterranean sunshine to high, relentless rain and wind! Particularly if you are in an exposed coastal location durable, weatherproof building materials are a must. EPDM roofs excel in these sometimes unpredictable weather conditions. The synthetic rubber membrane is incredibly durable, resisting strong winds, hail, heat and moisture.  EPDM is also resistant to UV rays, meaning it won’t break down under the summer sun.

 Long-lasting protection for your home

A new roof is a significant investment, and you want it to last. EPDM roofs boast an impressive lifespan, typically lasting 30-50 years with proper maintenance. That’s peace of mind knowing your home is protected for decades to come.

 A flexible option, perfect for Roof Lanterns and Glass Panels

Is any single-storey, flat roof extension complete without a roof lantern these days? Creating a gorgeous natural light and a modern, chic feel, we can understand why these flat roof additions have become so popular. Fortunately, EPDM flat roofs are the perfect partner for both roof lanterns and glass panels.

Cost-effective choice

While EPDM roofs offer superior durability, they’re also surprisingly cost-effective. The material itself is affordable, and the installation process is generally faster compared to other flat roof options. Additionally, their low maintenance requirements translate to further savings down the line.

Easy maintenance

Unlike some flat roof options that require constant upkeep, EPDM roofs are delightfully low-maintenance. The smooth surface discourages moss growth, and occasional cleaning with a mild detergent and water is all it takes to keep them looking their best.

The sustainable roofing solution

For environmentally conscious homeowners, EPDM is a great choice. EPDM membranes are recyclable, and their long lifespan reduces the need for frequent replacements, minimising waste. In addition, The production process of our EPDM minimises environmental impact compared to other roofing materials, and their flame-free installation minimises carbon emissions at the installation stage of the process, too.
