Firestone Rubber Roofing

Firestone Rubber Roofing is ideal for Commercial and Domestic New or Repair Flat Roof projects

Firestone RubberCover™ EPDM Roofing Systems are ideal for residential flat roofs – the main reason is because the membrane can be cut to size on roofs of around 40m2 and below, so there are no seams. Flat roofing problems occur mostly at the seams or laps.

Places where EPDM can be used

Firestone rubber is ideal for commercial and domestic projects and Ballman Roofing Contractors cover both sectors. Here are some examples of where Firestone Rubber Roofing can be used on domestic dwellings: Flat roof extensions, dormer roofs, flat porch roofs, garages, carports, garden, balconies, gutters and many more.

Ballman Roofing Contractors’ staff has received training directly from Firestone and is accredited by Firestone. Therefore, once we have competed Firestone Rubber Roof work, we provide the homeowner or commercial building owner with a written 25 year guarantee.

Features of Firestone Rubber Roofs

Superior durability Firestone RubberCover™ EPDM membranes offer incredible resistance to UV radiation which can often be an issue with flat roofing membranes. Also what stands it apart from many other cold application flat roofing products is that it can be applied in high or low temperatures – you can stand on the membrane immediately, so tiling intersections or general finishing can be carried out straight away and often smaller roofs can be completed in one day.

Longevity Firestone rubber has a life expectancy of up to 50 years. There are thousands of roofs across the world standing testament to the length of Firestone EPDM membrane’s proven performance. This is not a new product or system, so it literally has been tried and tested.

Seamless Firestone RubberCover™ EPDM membranes can be cut to order in large, seamless sheets of up to 6.10m in width. Most small residential roofs can therefore be covered with one single sheet, without any seaming on site as all seams are factory formed.

Flame-free Installation of Firestone RubberCover™ EPDM membrane is quick and clean and requires no heat and therefore no hot works permit. It requires no flame, as the membrane is always fully adhered to the substrate using a cold applied adhesive.

Maintenance Free Firestone RubberCover™ EPDM membranes require no real maintenance, once installed.  Once the job is complete, you can rest assured without worrying about your flat roof. Rubber roofs are also recognized by surveyors as longer lasting, so a rubber roof can even add value to your property and make it easier to sell.

Environmentally friendly Firestone RubberCover™ EPDM is a fantastic method of recycling and when used as an overlay system, saves on landfill.

Highly flexible Firestone RubberCover™ EPDM membranes always remains highly flexible, even at low temperatures and after ageing. This means it can cope with all weather variations and be installed all year round. The membrane has over 300% elasticity to accommodate for thermal and building movements.

Intallation of Firestone RubberCover™ EPDM

Firestone RubberCover™ EPDM membrane must always be fully adhered to the substrate, by applying RubberCover™ Bonding Adhesive both to the membrane and the substrate.  This must be left to cure, so it is touch dry before bonding. Compatible substrates are wood, bitumen, PIR and PUR insulation, concrete, aluminum and zinc.  The surface must always be clean.

Ballman Roofing will always carry out a site survey before works commence, because as we are accredited to a vast range of different manufactured flat roofing systems, we can always advise on the best product to suit your particular requirements.

Firestone RubberCover™ EPDM membranes can be installed on both new and existing roofs. Firestone RubberCover™ EPDM can overlay virtually any old roof, providing the roof decking is sound and the existing structure can carry the load of the new roofing system.
