EPDM Roofing by Commercial Roof Specialists
Commonly referred to simply as “rubber roofing,” EPDM roofing is a black, flexible rubber roof option that is perfect for flat or low-sloped commercial roofs. Stevan Buren Roofing, Windows, and Flooring offers high-quality EPDM products and installation services to give your local business the long-lasting new roof.
What Is EPDM Roofing?
EPDM is a synthetic rubber roofing material. Durable in nature, it is made from Ethylene Propylene Diene Terpolymer. This material can be applied to the roof surface multiple ways: fully adhered, mechanically fastened or ballasted (built-up). EPDM roofing comes in a variety of widths, which can be beneficial. The process of applying larger sections to the roof surface can create fewer seams and therefore, fewer points for adhesion to fail. Like modified bitumen, if leaks do occur, small sections of membrane can be laid out and applied to cover the necessary section. As a result, repairs are cost-effective, fast and easy.
Benefits of Installing EPDM Roofing
One incredible benefit to EPDM roofing is its fire resistance. It is extremely difficult to ignite. This durability has been known to impede the progress of fires. It also lasts a long time. While most warranties last 30 years, some EPDM roofs have been known to last 50 years or more. The newer rubber formulas are even creating membranes that are even more durable and more impervious to radiation and damage from UV rays.
EPDM is highly wind-resistant when fully adhered and stands up well to hail. This flexible roofing membrane is pliable and settles into the roof structure. It is also highly resistant to extreme hot and cold weather.
This material can be prone to tears and, if not professionally installed, can commonly develop small leaks around vent pipes and other roof protrusions. This can be avoided by ensuring your EPDM roof is installed by an experienced professional, such as the roofing contractors here at Stevan Buren Roofing.
