How Can an rubber roof Benefit My Extension?

At Cherrytree Builders, we’re constantly looking for new, innovative solutions when it comes to home extensions. We look at materials and techniques that can help reduce costs, improve energy efficiency and are environmentally friendly.

This is why we recommend investing in an EPDM flat roof for your new extension.

An EPDM flat roof is created by using a single sheet of rubber membrane. EPDM flat roofs have been around since the 1960s and have become increasingly popular for UK homeowners.

With a life expectancy of over 50 years, they represent a great alternative from traditional roofing materials such as tiles or asphalt.


There are a number of benefits that an EPDM flat rubber roof offers. These benefits include:

  1. Extreme Longevity. The rubber membrane is incredibly durable and requires little maintenance after being installed. When installed and maintained correctly, a new EPDM flat roof can last in excess of 50 years!
  2. Environmentally Friendly. Unlike other roofing materials, the production of rubber roofs has a minimal impact on the environment. Furthermore, an EPDM flat roof is 100% recyclable if you’re replacing it.
  3. Incredibly Durable. A rubber roof is made to last. It can easily survive extreme weather conditions, resistant to sun UV rays and doesn’t allow moss to grow onto it.


With reduced yearly maintenance costs, energy efficient and long-lasting, an EPDM flat roof is a fantastic value for money. Have you got planning permission?

If you’re looking for the right roofing material for your home extension, we strongly recommend researching further into an EPDM flat roof and understanding how it could benefit your extension and property.
