Firestone EPDM rebrands to ElevateTM
ElevateTM is now the new brand name for Firestone EPDM, following the acquisition of Firestone Building Products by Holcim. The brand name may be changing, but the iconic Firestone products and exceptionally high standards remain the same.
As the Firestone-Elevate rebrand rolls out in the coming months, you’ll begin to notice us updating the website to reflect these changes. Buy your favourite Firestone EPDM membranes and supplies at PermaRoof UK as usual, your orders will not be affected.
Why Choose RubberGutter?
Save money and reduce environmental waste by refurbishing your old metal gutters, rather than replacing them with new and give them a second life with RubberGutter EPDM SA from Firestone Elevate.
All too often, metal gutters are torn down and disposed of during roofing replacement or refurb. This can prove a costly move, as removal and replacement with new guttering can be a sizeable investment. Now there is a way to seal and protect metal gutters while giving them a fresh, new look with high performing EPDM membrane.
RubberGutter has been developed using self-adhering (SA) EPDM membrane with a quick and easy-to-remove release liner that can be peeled away in sections along the gutter length.
No special tools, heat sources and no adhesives are needed, as sealant, an outlet accessory and the RubberGutter product itself can be utilised to complete the installation detailing:
- Drain and gutter outlet
- Internal and external corners
- Seams or join details
Firestone RubberGutter EPDM SA is available in 75cm width x 20m rolls. It is a lightweight 1.3mm grade EPDM with exceptional durability and flexibility, making it perfect for gutter lining.

Please read these considerations before purchasing Firestone RubberGutter:
Firestone RubberGutter SA is approved for installation on the following substrates:
Substrates must be prepared carefully prior to installation to ensure a smooth, clean, dry surface, free from dust, grease or other debris which could inhibit successful adhesion.
Install RubberGutter only when the membrane, substrate and ambient temperatures are dry and at a minimum of -7 degrees and above.
Do not install if temperatures are lower than the recommended minimum, during humid weather or if rainfall is expected.
The Firestone RubberGutter system includes a drain insert to complete a watertight seal at the gutter outlets, such as drainage downpipes.
Ensure you purchase any accessories prior to installation. The PermaRoof teams are on hand to assist with your order and help you build a kit list if required.
Pieces of the RubberGutter EPDM can be cut and used to create additional flashing, such as on internal corners and for minor repairs where appropriate.

Dry weather is best and above -7°C. We do not recommend tackling any aspect of installation during periods of high humidity or when rain is expected.
There is no adhesive needed to install the RubberGutter system, as it is fully self-adhering. A quick-release backing paper is provided in sections to ease application. Sealant is needed to complete the seal around edges, accessories and seam joins.
No primer or adhesives are needed on non-porous substrates.
Porous surfaces, such as brick walls, for instance, will need to be primed using Firestone QuickPrime Plus before installation of the RubberGutter membrane. Primer can be applied using the Quickscrubber Kit for the best results.
If drain details are not completed by the end of the working day, ensure that rainwater can still flow through the existing outlet. Before leaving, make sure that connections and terminations are temporarily waterproofed to prevent water ingress.
