What is EPDM Roofing?
Single-ply rubber roofing materials are well suited to commercial roofs, but EPDM is a specific kind of rubber roofing membrane made from “ethylene propylene diene monomer,” an elastic rubberized plastic manufactured in sheets and joined together for a waterproof covering for a flat roof. This type of roofing can be installed on the flat roof surface either by bonding adhesives, ballasted rubber roof systems, or mechanical fasteners.
Advantages of EPDM Roofing for Flat Roofs
- Resistant to moisture, oxygenation, UV rays, fire, impacts, tearing, and chemicals
- Very wind resistant because it’s seamless and low profile.
- White coatings available for added sun resistance.
- Cost effective from installation throughout the lifespan of the roofing, including inexpensive roofing repair.
- Very lightweight at only half a pound per square foot, it’s ideal for older flat roofs.
