What is Rubber Roofing?
Rubber roofing, sometimes known as EPDM roofing, is a mix of rubber and plastic that is manufactured in sheets to cover flat roofs, often for commercial buildings but increasingly on residential homes as well.
Advantages of Rubber Roofing
- Protection – While being very lightweight, rubber roofing membranes protect flat roofs from the elements like water, temperature extremes, fire, impacts, and even UV rays (with a white coating).
- Insulation – Rubber has insulating properties, and rubber roofing allows for choice in roof decking and insulation underneath the roofing membrane.
- Durability – Rubber roofing is very resistant to impact damage, which allows it to have up to a 50 year lifespan!
- Ease of Installation – Since it can be installed either by mechanical fasteners or adhesives, the membrane is easy to install, contributing to a low cost.
Cost Effectiveness – Out of all the commercial flat roofing options, rubber roofing (specifically EPDM roofing) is the cheapest to install with the most ROI from energy savings over time.
