I'm looking to purchase EPDM membrane for a DIY job, preferably self-
adhesive. I see lots of companies in the UK selling the supplies, but
haven't found anything in the US yet (I want to see a price list for
different sizes and thicknesses, order over the internet, etc).
Is anyone aware of any suppliers that sell to the DIY market? Ideally I
need a 30' x 30' white faced membrane.
I've never heard of self-adhearing EPDM, only the glue down. There's
a lot of sellers on Ebay selling it. I'm also not sure you can even
get it 30' wide without a splice. A piece that size is going to be
quite heavy so shipping might be a little pricy. I'd try the yellow
pages first, most large roofing suppliers carry it.
I'd agree with rustyjames, never heard of self adhesive. Seems like
that would be a nightmare to get it down without it sticking to
itself. Around here, you can get 40 mil or 60 mil in 10 or 20 foot
wide rolls. Here in the Midwest, Menards carries EPDM. Never heard
of white, but then I learn something new every day.
In my area, there are several supply houses that would sell to a
homeowner, but I would just go to Menards. A self adhesive sheet that
was 30' x 30' would be impossible for a pro to put down, not a prayer
for a DIY'r.
There used to be a product called "Hypsam" that was a self adhesive
product that came in 3' wide rolls and was applied in overlapping
rows, but I think it has been discontinued.
EPDM can be tricky as a DIY project. The old joke is that "there are
two types of flat roofs - those that are leaking now and those that
will leak". If you do find what you are looking for you should do
lots of research into all the techniques for installing it properly.
I have used these products with good success lately:
