Ethylene propylene diene monomer, or EDPM, is a popular roofing materials on commercial buildings. Also referred to as rubber roofing, this single ply membrane layer has been used in low slope applications for decades, effectively providing safety to residential and commercial structures.

6 Features and Benefits of EPDM Roofer

How come EDPM popular and thinking about consider using it for your roof? Single layer roof repair experts at Carney Roofing Company reveal six of the best reasons:

one. Affordable

The normal EPDM roof cost is lower compared to other commercial roof materials such as TPO, PVC and metal. Like a single-ply membrane, it’s very simple to install, lowering installation costs. What’s more, exchanging it won’t cost a fortune.

2. Easy to Preserve

EPDM roofs require little maintenance compared to other roofing materials. Mount it and ignore it. However, scheduling an everyday maintenance regimen can prolong its life span.

3. Long lasting

If properly installed, EPDM RUBBER roofs last for around 20 years. Coupled with proper care and maintenance, their UV resistance allows it to last even extended — up to 50 years.

4. Resilient

As a rubber membrane, EPDM is very resilient. It is flexible enough to bend around gutters, pipes and skylights, and even strong enough to resist temperature ranges brought about by extreme climate. It can tolerate temperatures which range from -58° to 302°.

5. Energy-Efficient

EPDM RUBBER roofs help lower your cooling costs in two ways: by reflecting temperature, it keeps the decorations of your building cool; also because it is for you to, it allows heat and vapor to escape from inside the building.

EPDM RUBBER also acts as an insulator, helping to keep your building warm during cold weather. While it is breathable, it is not permeable enough for moisture to enter, thus helping to lower your heating costs.

6. Environment-Friendly

When your EPDM roof structure reaches the ending of its life span, it can be recycled into new roofing material. Youre assured that very little, if any, goes to landfills every time an EPDM RUBBER membrane is removed from a roof.
