Follow these simple steps to work out the size of the membrane and trims required for your EPDM rubber roof
Measure the roof i.e. Length x Width (in metres)
Add a minimum of 150mm-200mm each side to allow the membrane to overhang any open edges and open gutter edges
Add the height of any upstand if the roof adjoins an adjacent building i.e. attached to the house (min 200mm)
Add 300mm if the membrane is to finish under a pitched roof
Round up the measurements to the nearest half metre (0.5m)
Example 6.6m x 4.2m will need to be rounded up to 7m x 4.5m (we cannot accept returns of EPDM membrane where the mistake lies with the customer as these are specifically cut to size on order)
Measure any edges where trims are required (fascia edges) in metres
Measure any gutter edge in metres
Trims (edge and gutter trim) are available in both black and white
Quantities of adhesives required are worked out based on the coverage rates advised by the manufacturer (Firestone). The correct quantities of adhesives for the size of the membrane are based on these coverage rates. Please refer to the installation guide or tin for application
