Improve Your Commercial Roof’s Longevity
A single-ply Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer (EPDM) roofing system offers you a high-performance roof that will provide maximum protection against the severest of weather conditions. Whether you own an office building, distribution warehouse or hospital, EPDM could be a great roofing option for you.
What Is EPDM Roofing?
In the roofing industry, EPDM is better known as rubber roofing. This option is a single-ply rubber membrane that’s effective at waterproofing your roof and requires little to no maintenance. EPDM is easy to install and is tailor made for low-slope roof surfaces. As a commercial roofing mainstay for more than 25 years, EPDM is renowned for its reliability, durability and cost efficiency.
Benefits of EPDM Roofing
Besides being waterproof and strong enough to withstand severe weather, EPDM roofing offers the following benefits:
- Affordability–EPDM roofing materials tend to cost less than other roofing types, the materials are lightweight, which makes installation quick and keeps your labor and installation costs down.
- Long-term durability–EPDM uses rubber, a long-lasting material, and the roofs are usually laid out in one piece so there are few to no seams. The less seams on the EPDM roof, the less places there are for water to get under the roof and damage your commercial building. Plus, rubber can withstand the sun’s UV rays, allowing an EPDM roof to stay intact for 50 years.
- Easy maintenance–While many roofing materials may need some care over their lifetime, EPDM rubber roofs will require minimal, if any care once they are installed–maybe put a new coat of paint on it every decade or so at the most.
- Energy efficient–EPDM roofs reflect heat, which could save your building significantly on air conditioning costs. EPDM is also a great insulator, so it will trap heat during the winter to keep your heating bills low, too.
