EPDM Shed Roof Rubber Membrane is eco-friendly, durable and long-lasting. Installation is fast and safe, and here at Rubber Flat Roof, we have installation videos and tutorials. In addition, unlike asphalt products which are heat applied, Rubberall EPDM is cold applied and fitted in one sheet.

And the best part? We’ve done all of the hard work for you. At Rubber Flat Roof, we have launched a new product: an EPDM Rubber Shed Roof Kit. Packed into a neat box, our EPDM Rubber Shed Roof Kit is highly convenient. It is designed with the homeowner in mind – to ensure that roofing or re-roofing your shed is a straightforward and easy process!

Included in the Kit:

How to Install:
  • Remove existing timber edge trims and put them to one side if they can be reused. Remove the old roof covering, any exposed nails and replace any rotten deck boards.
  • Ensure that the deck surface is clean, dry and free from contaminants and dust.
  • Unwrap the EPDM Rubber and place onto the shed roof – ensure there is equal coverage. Wait for half an hour for EPDM to relax.
  • Fold back half of the EPDM Rubber Roof Membrane to expose the timber deck underneath and apply the QuickBond 1600 evenly with a roller.
  • Roll the membrane back into a position while the adhesive is still wet, use a soft broom to ensure no air is trapped underneath the membrane.
  • Repeat the process for the other half of the roof.
  • Using scissors cut off any excess EPDM Rubber Roof Membrane, leaving 50mm overhang (approximately).
  • Fold the membrane back on itself and fix it with trims.
