Epdm: which is best?
I need my dormer flat roof replaced. Which one do you think is best Classic Bond EPDM or Rubbberbond Fleeceback EPDM? What is the difference between the two? I have received 2 quotes. One roofer has suggested the first and the other the second. Also, are there other makes of EPDM? Many thanks
Hi they are basically all the same but with different components and fixing methods, some are like a large puncture repair kit when joining pieces together and some are heat welded with a adhesive that is factory applied to the sheets. I have fitted firestone and hertalan as well as a make called novatan but every company claims to be the best dont they.

Both types are very good with long life expectancy , go with the quote / contractor you are happy with. Make sure you have references or feedback before you go ahead & don't pay until roof is completed & tested.
