EPDM is a synthetic rubber roofing membrane that is used all over the world. EPDM is available in a range of widths and thicknesses and is available in both black and white. EPDM is one of the most common flat roof systems built in the United States today due to its superior reliability and cost-effectiveness.
Benefits of EPDM
EPDM rubber roofing has the longest average service life in the roofing industry, at around 25-30 years. It’s light and flexible, and it can be used on flat, low, or steep slope roofs, making it an excellent roof over solution. The membranes are resistant to wind, hail, UV radiation, thermal shock, and extreme temperatures, making it a long-lasting roof that will keep your roof watertight for years.
Installing EPDM Roof
EPDM rubber roofs can be installed in three ways: adhered, mechanically fastened, or ballasted. Each installation method has its own set of advantages and applications. The roof completely adheres to the surface under it in a fully adhered structure. The EPDM system that takes the most time to install and lasts the longest is this one. Mechanically attached EPDM is the most common kind, with fasteners screwed into the deck through the insulation. Ballasted systems are loosely laid over insulation and secured with river-washed stone or concrete pavers.
