Will your flat roof survive the winter?

EPDM flat roof – why builders are ditching felt

EPDM roofing is fast becoming the number one choice for builders who want to guarantee a leak-proof flat roof for their clients.

Common problems with flat roofs Traditional flat roofing materials can break down over time due to sun damage,
