In order to install an EPDM roofing membrane around your roof lanterns, please familiarise yourself with our online videos and tutorials first. 

Installing EPDM Rubber Roofing Solutions around your roofing lantern uses mainly the membrane; ensuring your roof remains are watertight as possible. Firstly, follow the online tutorials to learn how to place your EPDM membrane around your roof light. Next, with your membrane against your roof light, cut straight down at the four corners, creating a triangle. Finally, use flashing tape to secure membrane around the corners, creating a watertight seal.

Flashing Tape:

  • EPDM flashing tapes bond better to the primed EPDM over time.
  • Elevated temperatures will cause the product to cure tighter.
  • Over time, the product has a superior performance over the full range of environmental conditions.
  • Once applied, flashing tape has quick tack from high to low temperatures.
  • Flashing tapes allow a time-saving flashing detail.
  • Once installed, resists tearing, cracking and abrasion in all weather conditions.
