The Green Team Inc. has carried out a Life Cycle Assessment study on the environmental impact of EPDM compared to similar roofing assemblies. In the case study we look at why Life Cycle assessment is an important part of modern performance measurement, the roles installation and service life play in the life cycle and the supporting data which shows how EPDM membranes are outperforming rivals.
What is the best solution when it comes to making a building energy efficient and reducing its carbon foot print? When considering this question it is important to look at all factors including climate, location and what a manufacture is willing to cover when it comes to climate and durability. In this case study we get to the truth and the common misconceptions when it comes to different types of roofing systems and energy efficiency.
This case study looks at how the complete process of a re-covering a flat roof using RubberBond FleeceBack should be carried out. The project was carried out by Marwood Roofing and included removal and replacement of the old felt roof and re-decking the roof which is only required in cases where the old roofing system has not perform due to poor quality or age. The owners of the property were left with a great looking roof that will last for over 50 years.
Efficiency, energy saving and environmental issues are high on everyone’s agenda, from businesses looking to promote green issues while making cost savings, to the individual home owner looking to save money on their energy bill. In this case study we discuss how the dark colour of RubberBond FleeceBack saves energy, and the associated costs, across the globe and particularly in the cooler climates of northern Europe.
Contractors have become better and better at carrying out re-roofing projects while causing minimal disruption and at finding the most cost effective solution. It is still always an important consideration to select a single ply membrane that is going to offer superior performance and long term cost savings. In this article we discuss how the manufacturing process and investment in advanced seam technologies has made makes RubberBond FleeceBack a long term flat roofing solution.
Sustainability is key when it comes to minimising costs and protecting the environment. EPDM’s strength, lifespan and ease of maintenance all add to a buildings sustainability. On top of this EPDM roofs can be refurbished rather than replaced. Re-seaming patching and other repair work can often replace the need to completely replace an EPDM roof meaning the most is made of all materials and less wastage is necessary. In this case study we look at how EPDM has used its sustainability and environmental benefits to revolutionise the flat roofing market.
Here we look at how a complete re-roof of a 1,750m² in Welwyn Garden City. We can see how TSS Roofing Ltd carried out the installation from start to finish. The case study also show the versatility of fleece backed EPDM systems when it comes to covering different substrates and surfaces.
Trained contractors provide a property owner with the peace of mind that their project is being carried out by people who have the required knowledge and expertise to complete their roof maximise it performance. Here we see how Moray Roofing in Aberdeenshire went about completing a roof installation for a customer who by their own admission were fussy about workmanship.
