We’re licensed to install rubber roofing in Hale Barns. If you’ve never heard of rubber roofing, usually referred to as EPDM, you are not alone. If highly effective, low maintenance, long-lasting and cheap are your guidelines for new roofing, then consider rubber. Rubber is probably the least expensive roofing product you can buy and yet it will easily last 50 years. Anything that lasts 50 years is a bargain, but it gets better. While it is required that a licensed roofer install the rubber roof, it goes on fast so our labour costs are low compared to a shingled roof. In some cases, we can install the rubber roof in one large seamless sheet. Seamless means no opportunity for leaks. You can count on this roof to withstand all weather extremes.
Most rubber roofing is made from recyclable materials and at the end of its life cycle can once again be recycled. For environmentally conscientious people in Hale Barns, rubber roofing may be the greenest roofing material available. It also naturally repels the sun’s heat but acts as an insulator to block cold air, reducing your energy bills. Rubber roofing is among the most fire-resistant roofing materials available, which will make you and your insurance company happy. Most roofs need some maintenance but a rubber roof, aside from regular inspections, is truly maintenance-free. Some rubber roofing manufacturers suggest painting the roof with acrylic paint to prolong the life of an already incredibly durable roof. If you do that, you might want to repaint it every ten to fifteen years.
You may be thinking that rubber roofing in Hale Barns probably sounds too good to be true, especially if you’ve never heard of it before. The downside is rubber roofing material is usually black and not especially attractive. Some manufacturers are producing a light coloured rubber that is more aesthetically acceptable, especially for residential houses. Of course, you can always use the acrylic paint recommended in any colour you like. Rubber roofing is an option that we want people to know is available to them.
