Installing an EPDM Rubber Shed Roof Kit takes only a few hours and it is a straightforward and easy process. We offer a range of guides and video tutorials for a hassle-free installation, but if you do have any queries, please do get in touch.
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 with trims.
