Installing EPDM on a shed roof
The installation process for EPDM is fast and straightforward, well within the capabilities of a skilled and confident DIYer. For the best results, start with some solid preparation work to form a base for long-lasting adhesion:
Unpack the shed roofing kit and check the contents. Unfold the membrane and lay out to rest for 30 minutes. This will allow any packing creases to dissipate.
Completely remove the old shed covering and clean any residual dirt and grease from the timber roof deck. Use a suitable, non-solvent degreaser or pressure washer if you have one. Allow to dry completely. Remove the facing timbers and set these aside to reattach later (new timbers are not included in your EPDM kit) or replace with new ones.
Lay out the membrane over the shed roof in the correct position and leaving the overhang. Lay half over the other side and expose half the shed roof deck.
Spray the adhesive evenly over the exposed timber and over the underside of the membrane you folded. Allow to go tacky (use the push finger test to confirm).
Adhere the prepared membrane over the exposed half of the shed roof and use a soft broom to press the membrane down. At this point, press out any visible air pockets and ensure that there is full adhesion.
Repeat on the other side of the shed roof.
Trim the membrane overhang, then complete the installation and seal the corners with the timbers and the Bond n Seal sealant.
