Upgrade to EPDM Rubber Roof: Enhance Durability and Longevity for Your Garden Building

8th June 2023

At Truro Portable Buildings, we are excited to introduce a new optional upgrade for all our buildings: the EPDM rubber roof. This innovative roofing solution offers superior durability and longevity compared to traditional felt roof coverings. In this blog post, we’ll delve into the benefits of upgrading to an EPDM rubber roof, highlighting why it’s a worthwhile investment for your garden building.

  1. Traditional felt roof coverings like felt are great options for basic sheds and storage, There is a need for a roofing solution that offers enhanced durability to withstand the Cornish elements and ensure long-term protection of your building.
  2. Introducing EPDM Rubber Roofing: Introduce EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer) rubber roofing as a superior alternative. EPDM is a synthetic rubber membrane known for its exceptional durability, flexibility, and resistance to UV radiation, extreme temperatures, and environmental factors. This material has a proven track record in various industries, including commercial and residential buildings.
  3. The longevity of EPDM rubber roofs compared to felt roofs is possible through exceptional resistance to cracking, splitting, and deterioration  and allows it to outlast traditional materials, offering a prolonged lifespan for your garden building. This translates into long-term cost savings and peace of mind for the customer.
  4. The superior waterproofing properties of EPDM rubber roofs are clear. The single-ply membrane forms a seamless and watertight barrier, protecting your garden building from leaks, water damage, and moisture penetration.
  5. Low Maintenance and Easy Repairs: minimal maintenance is required for EPDM rubber roofs. The inherent resistance to mould, algae growth, and general debris accumulation simplifies cleaning and upkeep. Additionally, any necessary repairs are typically straightforward and can be easily addressed with EPDM repair kits.

Conclusion: Upgrading to an EPDM rubber roof for your garden building is a wise choice that brings numerous benefits. With its exceptional durability, longevity, superior waterproofing, and low maintenance requirements, EPDM rubber roofing provides optimal protection and peace of mind. Take advantage of our affordable upgrade option at Truro Portable Buildings to enjoy a long-lasting, reliable, and high-performance roofing solution for your cherished garden building.
