What is EPDM Roofing You Ask?

asphalt shingle roofingThere are lots of choices in commercial roofing. Choosing the right material benefits a building in the short term and long term.

One outstanding avenue for commercial roofing is EPDM roofing. EPDM stands for ethylene propylene diene terpolymer. EPDM is commonly referred to as rubber roofing. The material in EPDM is used to manufacture a single-ply roofing pane. This is one of many reasons why it’s shot to the top of the list of preferred roofing materials for roofers and contractors.

So what are some of the other reasons for the popularity of EPDM?

  • It resists damage from heat, weather exposure, ozone, abrasion, fire, thermal shock and general fatigue.
  • EPDM is lighter than cedar and slate roofing, making it easier to install.
  • The rubberized material of EPDM will shift and adapt with the building as the building shifts over time.
  • The rubber of EPDM is made with recycled material, making it environmentally friendly.
  • It is sold in a variety of widths.
  • The rubber sheets of the roofing can be sealed around HVAC and other protrusions.
  • Repairs require less equipment than is necessary when other types of roofing are in need of repairs.

EPDM is the solution in the search for a highly durable, energy-efficient option for commercial roofing.
