Throw away the manual – Firestone EPDM single ply roofing membrane is taking the residential flat roof market by storm and is fast becoming the product of choice for architects, specifiers and installers.
Firestone RubberCover is ticking all the boxes throughout the residential flat roofing market with its flame free application, life expectancy in excess of 50 years and Eco-friendly attributes.
In fact, Firestone EPDM is the only product of its type to be endorsed by GreenPeace who name is as the “enviromentally friendly choice for roofing membranes” in their Building for the Future publication. Furthermore, a recent report by ACTAC (The Association of Community Technical Aid Centres) and published in the Green Building Digest concludes that the Firestone EPDM is the “best buy” roofing membrane due to its low environmental impact in comparison to other membranes, with high durability and re-usability.
