If your current roof just isn’t cutting it, consider investing in rubber roofing. This involves the installation of a synthetic membrane to your roof and has a plethora of benefits that are hard to overlook. Plus, it’s suitable for both commercial and domestic properties. For more information on its top qualities, keep on reading.
Cost-effective Rubber Roofing
Usually the first question on everyone’s lips – how much does it cost? It’s important to understand you’re not just paying for up-front installation and quality; but longevity. A rubber roof can last between a whopping 30 to 50 years, so its unlikely to need replaced more than once in your lifetime. Of course, with proper maintenance and upkeep, you can expect your roof to last the maximum duration of its lifespan. You need to invest in the maintenance of your product, otherwise you’ll be out on costly repairs and replacements that could otherwise be avoided. Furthermore, rubber is an affordable material and well worth the price point.
Durable & Weather Resistant Rubber
Rubber membranes are notoriously resistant to extreme outdoor environments. They are waterproof and puncture-proof, making them ideal for tumultuous weather like rain, snow and wind. They can take a beating without compromising the integrity of the watertight seal. It will also do a decent job of staving off superficial cracks and dents. The less water that seeps through to damage your property, the better! However, you’ll need to keep an eye on your rubber membrane incase it starts to show signs of wear and tear. Regular surveys will prevent expensive repairs down the line and bolster the longevity of your roofing.
Painless Roofing Installations
Rubber membranes are lightweight and easy to install. This is beneficial for sheds and other constructions that can’t support the weight of heavier materials, but it also works well on sturdier domestic and commercial properties. Its installation process is much safer than other popular roofing materials. The membrane is glued onto your roof which negates the need for heat, and thus lowers risk of complications. The only catch is that your roof must be dry before the adhesive is applied, or it won’t stick. This, coupled with its simplistic design, will keep labour costs affordable. Rubber membranes are also eco-friendly as they’re composed exclusively of recycled materials, which is always a bonus. For the icing on the cake, rubber membrane is fireproof, mould resistant and pest resistant; on top of its other wonderful environmental benefits. Affordable, durable and ecologically sound — what’s not to like?

Frequent cleaning with dish soap and warm water will do the job, as will regular maintenance checks. This is to ensure your product is holding up and the surface hasn’t been compromised. This could lead to irreversible damage, so keeping a close watch is important.
