It is calendered into large sheets and vulcanised.
Since 1980, over 1,000 million square metres of Firestone RubberCover EPDM membranes have been installed on roofs ranging from the cold climates of Alaska to the desert sun of the Arabian Gulf.

Jackson Roofing Have The Answer
Firestone EPDM is a one-piece membrane that can cover most domestic flat roofs without the need for joins in the material. Whether it's a porch, extension, garage or dormer, Firestone EPDM will provide the solution that will last and last.
A new roof - not a cover-over
Felt roofs have always been notorious for leaks, so the first thing that we do is to remove the old materials from the roof and repair any structural timbers that might have been damaged by water ingress. New boards are then laid and the Firestone membrane is fully adhered onto them. Our unique roofing edge trims are installed to complete the system giving a roof that will keep you and your possessions safe and dry.
