Flat Roofing Repairs in Banbury, Bicester and Oxfordshire | EPDM Rubber Specialists

Here at Abingdon Felt Roofing, we’ve built our reputation on the quality of our felt installation and repair services. In fact, we are one of the very few remaining local roofers in our area to not only use felt on pitched and flat roofs, but to also go a long way in pointing out its benefits. While felt systems can suffer in direct sunlight and crack, the IKO TGX roofing membranes we use have a lifespan of up to 15 years.

 

Some homeowners in the Abingdon, Banbury, Bicester, Didcot, Kidlington, Oxford, Wantage, Witney and Oxfordshire areas prefer us to undertake flat roofing repairs using EPDM.

 

EPDM rubber is a modern alternative to felt and one that is often used on flat roofing because of its durability and its seamless watertight coverage. First used in the USA at the start of the 1960s, where the weather is much warmer, EPDM has only risen above felt in terms of use in the UK recently. At Abingdon Felt Roofing, we undertake EPDM installations and flat roofing repairs using premium Firestone RubberCover™.

 

Firestone RubberCover™ | A Quality EPDM Material

 

Our local roofers believe that the strength of EPDM, and its ease of installation, makes it perfect for use on brand-new properties. It is also ideal for flat roofing repair and refurbishment work. Felt still has a range of major benefits on some jobs but, as a more universal system, EPDM offers a level of diversity that even modern equivalents, like GRP fibreglass, fail to offer in such similar measures.

 

The benefits of EPDM rubber include:

 

  • Durable enough to last over the full expected lifecycle
  • Simple installation with no hot application needed
  • Seamless, watertight and safe with minimal joins
  • Very little maintenance needed to keep its condition
  • Easy to repair in rare instances of accidental damage
  • A more attractive finish than felt and painted topcoats

 

We use Firestone RubberCover™ for flat roofing repairs because our Abingdon, Banbury, Bicester, Didcot, Kidlington, Oxford, Wantage and Witney customers deserve the best. Our choice to only lay a market-leading EPDM says everything about the ethos at Abingdon Felt Roofing, and about the credibility of our time-served local roofers. Once in place, the Firestone RubberCover™ system has 67% fewer joins than a felt roof.

 

With no heating or welding needed to lay EPDM, we can install rubber flat roofing quickly, safely and affordably.

Firestone RubberCover™ is a flame-resistant material with an excellent safety rating. Keep your property protected against potential damage and enjoy a lasting installation that won’t need recoating in a year or two. EPDM has made flat roofing repairs faster, safer and simpler so, pound for pound, it is just as effective in cost as felt, bitumen and GRP fibreglass.
