What you asked us most often last month
1. What’s the easiest way to repair my flat roof?
This depends on the type of flat roof system you have installed and the nature of the leak. EPDM membrane damage often requires a simple patch repair, and a crack in a concrete roof system could be quickly sealed with an Emergency Liquid Rubber product, for example.
It is important to address a leaking flat roof quickly to avoid further damage to timbers and interiors. Call in a professional roofer if you are unsure about the nature of the leak or are not confident to tackle a DIY flat roof repair.

2. How long does a rubber roof last?
EPDM rubber roof systems carry a typical service life expectancy of more than 50 years, based on proven performance all over the world in a wide range of climates.
Longevity and performance can also be influenced by the standard of the installation and materials used. It is often for this reason that qualified, reputable EPDM installers include both membrane and workmanship guarantees as standard.
Permaroof stocks Firestone RubberCover EPDM and SealEco Fleece-backed EPDM systems, carefully selected for performance and longevity spanning a wide range of flat roofing projects.

3. How to waterproof a shed roof
Waterproofing your shed roof can be a straightforward process, perfect for a skilled DIYer. Starting with a shed roof kit is ideal if you have a standard-sized shed with a timber roof.
Using a high quality membrane in place of traditional shed roof materials can ensure a longer lasting result, cutting down on annual maintenance. EPDM is perfect for DIY shed roofing; with the waterproofing applied in a single-sheet using cold bonding and contact adhesives, the process is simplified, fast and safe.
