EPDM roofs are relatively inexpensive, lightweight, and are easy to install. It uses advanced rubber materials, which is easier to work with as compared to other roofing materials. It also has minimal odor and fumes, making it perfect for homes occupied by mainly older people.
While EPDM has over the years gained industry-wide acceptance, they have been used for several decades. Even today, EPDM roofs consist of single-ply membranes in some cases, and in others, some businesses may have upgraded to more sustainable options. However, if you have an EPDM roof, it is essential that you take good care of it. We recommend business owners get their roofs inspected annually, so any potential issues can be found and addressed before they get any worse.
At Diversified Roofing, we have been working with EPDM roofs for many years. Over the years, we’ve been able to find and repair a myriad of issues, from torn membranes or leaks.
