At Apex Fibreglass Roofing, after extensive experience in the sailing industry - we were amongst the first businesses to supply materials known for waterproofness and toughness in the sailing industry - as roofing products and kits where the materials provided the same tough performance.
We have tested a wide range of materials, such as EPDM - also known as rubber roofing - and looked at the advantages of using this material over other, more traditional roofing materials, such as felt. In this regard, EPDM roofing is streets above anything that has used before - rubber is one of the toughest and most durable materials available, and can be expected to last in the field for up to fifty years. Synthetic roofing materials such as EPDM/Rubber also do not pick up moss and algae - so less time is spent on the roof cleaning and maintaining.
Another added benefit, is that if there is damage to the roof - it is easily repaired by flashing tape, applied to a well prime surface. Repairs however, are usually the result of an issue - such as an impact to the roof, as generally rubber roofing does not blister or crack at all - fewer roofing solutions are as tough, and even fewer roofing solutions allow the owner of the property to sit back and relax, without worrying about leaks and roof maintenance.
If you have any questions about our rubber roofing - please do get in touch and we will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have.
