What is EPDM Roofing?
Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer (EPDM) roofing is a rubber synthetic that seals your roof to protect it from the weather. It’s common to see EPDM roofs across commercial buildings. You may also see TPO (thermoplastic polyolefin) as an alternative to EPDM. This type of roofing offers ease of installation, cost-effective pricing, and long lasting material.
The Benefits of EPDM Roofing
There are a number of benefits to choosing EPDM roofing for your commercial business. For flat roofs, EPDM is one of the most popular material choices because it is the best on the market. Here are the benefits of EPDM roofing:
While most other material for flat commercial roofs only last 5-10 years, EPDM roofing can last up to 30 years. On average it lasts between 18-25 years, depending on the installation and the climate. This means that for every one EPDM installation, you would need 2-3 installations of other materials. While the initial investment for EPDM may be a little high compared to other roofing materials, it lasts longer, which gives you more for your investment.
#2. Simple Installation
Don’t let the long polysyllabic name fool you. EPDM is relatively simple to install, which makes it a great material to choose when you need commercial roof repairs or a complete roof replacement quick. Depending on your roof size and complexity, expert roofing teams can install EPDM roofing in the matter of business days compared to the weeks it takes for other materials.
#3. Tough and Durable
In most cases, extreme weather doesn’t phase EPDM material. The flat rubber material is tough and durable when it comes to storms. Unless a natural disaster directly hits your building, you shouldn’t have to worry about the roof leaking or getting damaged with EPDM.
#4. UV Resistant
That’s right! EPDM roofs resist UV rays like the negative sides of magnets. Due to UV resistance, your EPDM roof ages slower than most materials. This means you can make an initial investment in EPDM and wait longer to have to replace it.
#.5 Eco-Friendly Material
EPDM can be manufactured with low-VOC or no-VOC, depending on the needs of the contractor and buyer. What’s more, EPDM Roofs are recyclable and have a long life span keeping the material out of landfills
