For more than 50 years, EPDM roofing membrane has been providing long-lasting performance on commercial, government, hospitals, and universities. EPDM roofing material is a durable and flexible synthetic rubber roofing membrane. Specifically, EPDM (ethylene and propylene) is manufactured using a combination of oil and natural gas.
While black is the most common color for EPDM installs, white is also an option. It also comes in a variety of widths and thicknesses. EPDM membrane may be adhered, mechanically attached, or loose laid and secured by a ballasted surface. The system is quick to install and will not disturb your daily business happenings.
Why Do Business Owners Install EPDM Roofs?
EPDM saves operational costs because of how energy efficient the material is. The thermal performance of a properly installed system will reduce energy consumption. EPDM withstands the effects of various climates extremely well. Properly designed, installed, and maintained EPDM systems can successfully withstand extreme weather cycles and exhibit exceptional wind uplift resistance.
Over time, as your roof experiences direct contact with the outdoor elements, it can easily be repaired. Unlike some other membranes, which degrade over time and cannot be altered later, EPDM rooftop repairs can be carried out at any stage of the roof’s lifespan. Additionally, it has become extremely popular because of the affordability of the material. It typically costs less than most asphalt roof systems.
With proper roof maintenance, it is reasonable to expect that an EPDM roof will approach or exceed 40 years of service. Our team of skilled experienced service technicians can provide the maintenance you need to extend the life of your EPDM roof to its fullest extent.
