The outside of your home is not only the part of it that everyone will see from the street, but it is also what keeps the rest of the interior of your home protected too. This means that it is important that your façade not only looks good, but that it is built using the best quality materials too, otherwise you could end up with a home that not only looks tired and worn, but that it also has problems with damp too.
So, what can you do to make sure that your façade can stand the test of time? One of the best things to do is to waterproof it and EPDM strips are probably the best material to use for this project.
But why? What are the benefits of waterproofing your façade with EPDM strips in particular?
When it comes to protecting the outside of your home, chances are that you are going to want to make sure that you have the best results possible. EPDM is a great idea for this. This material is known to be high performing and durable, particularly when it comes to air and water-tightness – important things to consider for your façade.
No house is the same, which means that finding materials that are fit to size can be tricky. That said, there are some homes out there that are similar in size and design. The great thing about EPDM is that it the strips not only come in standard sizes, but they can also be made to measure too, which is important when you are working on your home.
The outside of your home is going to have to stand against a variety of different temperature extremes and weather. The material is designed to be weather resistant, which means that you can have the peace of mind that no matter whether the rain is pouring, the sun is shining, or the wind is blowing, your home is always going to be protected.
Whilst some people may decide to have a professional to carry out their façade work, others can tackle it themselves. Some of the materials that you can use can be dangerous to our health, not exactly ideal to be around. This is not the case for EPDM. EPDM strips are made with non- toxic materials, which means that you can feel safe about using them. When it comes to putting them in place you also don’t have to work with flames or hot air, which means that there is less risk of fumes, bad odours or fires and burns too.
If this wasn’t enough to tempt you then another consideration is that EPDM is incredibly easy to use, which means that you can complete your project in a relatively short amount of time, which is something that we all like the sound of.
