EPDM roofing is the most common and arguably the most popular commercial roofing system. It’s a reliable material that features in both low-slope and flat roofing systems. Its popularity also extends to the residential sector, featuring in contemporary and ultra-modern homes.
In this post, The Thomas Roofing Company, Inc. discusses the features and benefits of EPDM roofing.
What Is EPDM?
This roofing system features a membrane made from synthetic rubber. Compared to regular rubber, this synthetic version (reinforced by Ethylene, Propylene and Diene) has improved weather resistance qualities. Compared to other commercial roofing systems, EPDM roofing has better tolerance to heat and moisture.
Another thing that separates this roofing system from others is its longer service life. Additionally, unlike many other commercial roofing systems, EPDM roofing doesn’t require any special equipment to install. As your professional local roofing contractor, you can count on us to properly install this rubber roofing system on your commercial property.
Despite being a membrane roof, which is often less durable than a “physical” roof, EPDM’s elasticity and flexibility make it less likely to crack. Apart from standard seam repairs, it also doesn’t require heavy maintenance due to its innate durability and elemental tolerance.
EPDM has a simple, straightforward appearance that makes it a good choice for industrial spaces and ultra-modern homes with minimalist architecture.
