On this page, homeowners in Leeds and all nearby areas can find out more about the benefits of EPDM flat roofs for their property, including installations on garage conversions.
Our company uses EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer) rubber membranes for flat roofs because of its durability, while slates and tile roofing materials are better suited to pitched roofs. EPDM is a synthetic rubber which is made from oil and natural gas, and it is ideal for flat roofs at domestic and commercial properties around Leeds because of its waterproofing capabilities and the seamless finish it provides.
Rubber membranes are highly versatile and can be used for a wide range of roofing services, including garage conversions, conservatories, orangeries and bay or dormer window roof extensions. EPDM rubber can also be incorporated into garden landscaping projects, as a lining for patios, decking, ponds, rooftop gardens, shed roofs and balcony flooring.

Waterproof and Weather Resistant
The adhesive rubber membrane can be easily attached to most roofing surfaces. Once it has been applied, the EPDM membrane is guaranteed through our roofing services to prevent water damage and premature wear for up to 20 years. EPDM can expand or contract when exposed to extreme temperatures without cracking, which traditional materials for flat roofs, including bitumen and felt, have always been susceptible to after a few years.
uPVC is also a handy material to help with any drainage issues at your Leeds property, including when used on garage conversions. It is an important part of our roofing services to maintain guttering and to ensure excess water is drained away effectively, and uPVC is our recommended material. It is also used to manufacture soffits and fascias.
Environmentally-Friendly and Cost-Effective
Just like natural and artificial slate and tile roofing materials, EDPM is environmentally-friendly due to its lifespan and recyclability. EPDM rubber can be easily recycled, and is endorsed by Greenpeace and ACTAC (Association of Community Technical Aid Centres). Unlike traditional felt or bitumen membranes, EPDM membranes can last from 20 to 40 years without requiring additional roofing services or repairs once it has been installed.
This makes EPDM a cost-effective material for flat roofs.
EPDM membranes will protect your Leeds property against leakages and dampness, and will provide excellent insulation when combined with newly-fitted garage doors. It is required by law for garage conversions to be habitable and fully insulated.
