Frequently Asked Questions
Who Are Firestone?
Since 1900, Firestone have been a pioneer in the manufacturing of rubber-based products. Their story first began when their founder Harvey Firestone, began crafting solid rubber tires for fire apparatus. A handful of years later in 1906, Henry Ford selected Firestone as the sole tire supplier for their cars.
Firestone witnessed continued growth in the decades later and became part of the Bridgestone group in 1988. At this point the company continued manufacturing high-performance tires and diversified to begin crafting other rubber materials.
This includes rubber roofing specially designed for flat roofing applications. Firestone’s range of membranes are seamless and therefore watertight. This ensures they can withstand ponding water as well as other weather conditions.
Due to their heritage in rubber manufacturing, Firestone EPDM membranes have quickly become a popular choice amongst tradespeople. Alongside Classic Bond, their range of rubber membranes are a favourite amongst UK homeowners too.
What Are Firestone Roofing Materials?
At the heart of the Firestone range is their RubberCover EPDM membranes. These membranes are available at either 1.52mm or 1.14mm thick, providing a solution for virtually any type of project.
In addition to their seamless membrane, Firestone offer purposely designed adhesives, sealants, tapes and accessories. These ensure that your membrane is truly weatherproof and provides a superb lifespan.
What is EPDM Roofing?
EPDM is a type of synthetic rubber used in a variety of construction materials. Unlike some other forms of rubber, EPDM is flexible and therefore easy to handle. It is also relatively lightweight and ideal for small to medium sized roofing applications.
The unique combination of ethylene, propylene and diene comonomer provides outstanding resistance to heat and UV. EPDM is also able to withstand tough weather conditions, whether that be hot summers or chilly winters.
EPDM is usually supplied in the form of a single piece membrane. This can be easily rolled out and cut. As the membrane has no seams it is weather-resistant and watertight. This provides you with the utmost confidence that your flat roof will be leak-free for decades to come.
What is the Guarantee on a Firestone Rubber Roof?
Firestone membranes come with a 10-year manufacturer's guarantee for all correctly installed Firestone rubber roofs.
