The Advantages of Rubber Roofing

EPDM Rubber Sheeting is a popular roofing material that is used worldwide. It’s high resistance to ageing and aggressive external conditions (i.e. UV rays, ozone, steam, etc.) make it the most versatile rubber sheeting solution for marine, construction, general industry and outdoor applications.

If you are planning to re-roof your house and want to explore all your options, here are some of the many advantages afforded by EPDM rubber sheeting:


  • Rubber roofs are extremely durable even when left exposed to damaging elements; rubber is incredibly resilient and flexible enough to fit around pipes, gutters and skylights.
  • Resistant to extreme temperatures, UV radiation, insects and moulds, EPDM rubber sheeting can generally last between 30 and 50 years with regular maintenance and sealing.


  • Rubber sheeting is one of the most inexpensive roofing materials around. Since it is lighter than other roofing alternatives, the labour costs for its installation are cheaper too!
  • Being a highly efficient product, it requires very little maintenance.


  • Rubber roofing is used as an alternative to the traditional petroleum-based roofing. It can be made from recycled materials and can then be recycled again after use.
  • Less energy is required to produce rubber sheets compared with other roofing materials.
  • EPDM rubber sheets are commonly available in black or white variants (which are highly reflective to sunlight and heat); significantly reducing household energy bills.

Easy-to-install and Repair

  • The installation process can be fairly simple as rubber is lightweight compared with other roofing materials like asphalt - making installation easier to perform.
  • Most homeowners can also manage any repair work. Although this type of roofing can be punctured or scratched overtime, it is easy to fix with a latex sealant.


Coruba offers various rubber sheeting products that can be supplied in rolls or part rolls – they can also be cut and slit to any shape or size you require. With all your enquiries, contact us today on 01702 560194!
