Installing Self Adhesive EPDM in a gutter

A high quality gutter covering significantly extends the life of a roof or gutter. When looking for a good gutter covering EPDM offers many advantages.

By waterproofing an existing or new gutter with an EPDM membrane the structure is sealed with a very strong protective layer. This protective layer prevents the gutter from being affected by stagnant water or other environmental influences. With an extremely long service life it also lasts longer than most zinc and plastic materials. This makes EPDM a smart choice at all times.

Installation example

In the event of a leak, completely replacing a gutter can be extremely costly. Lining the gutter with EPDM can be a more cost effective alternative. The membrane is easy to instal even in places that are difficult to access. EPDM can withstand both very low and very high temperatures and the installation work can be carried out both in winter and summer. This makes EPDM an attractive option for existing concrete and metal gutters.
