A Firestone press release from LAS VEGAS dated February 16, 2011, states:

At the 2011 International Roofing Expo, Firestone Building Products Company, LLC, is showcasing its UltraBlend Roofing System, a hybrid TPO/EPDM system that combines the strengths and benefits of two durable single-ply materials in one comprehensive, warrantable roofing system. To complement the UltraBlend system, Firestone’s full line of EcoWhite QuickSeam accessories – including flashings, pipe boots, penetration pockets and patches – can add to the ease and speed of installation.

Product Highlights:

  • Firestone is a roofing industry standard. It is a “single source roofing system provider” which creates a great platform for roofing contractors to serve clients.
  • The new single-ply system has an excellent warranty. The combination of the UltraPly TPO and the Rubbergard EPDM in a shingle roof system is innovative, comprehensive, and backed by a 20 year warranty.
  • The combination of UltraPly TPO for horizontal roof surfaces and either RubberGard EPDM or EcoWhite EPDM for vertical surfaces helps contractors save time and labour costs.
  • With the choice of 45 or 60 mil fully-adhered or mechanically attached UltraPly TPO membrane combined with either 60 mil black EPDM or highly reflective white EPDM, the UltraBlend System offers the option to use various combinations of accessories and flashings from both product lines.

Our Review:

Over the course of the year, we will be installing the new Firestone Roofing system and we will report on it. The hybrid system makes sense, and with Firestone’s history of roofing performance, we see no reason at this point to disqualify this system when considering commercial applications.

We encourage other roofing contractor comments as the system is being installed this season either by emailing us at or posting here on our blog.
