EPDM Rubber roofing, (ethylene propylene diene terpolymer), is a synthetic rubber roofing membrane. It is generally associated with commercial buildings that have low slopes. It is available in black or white, and is hailed for aiding in energy efficiency by either reflecting or deflecting light and heat.
EPDM is offered in a range of widths. Sheets of 7-1/2 to 50 ft are standard. Depending on the size of your building, and excluding side seams, it is possible to have a seamless application. The sheets are available in only two thicknesses, 45 or 50 mils. Consulting your dallas roofing contractor is advisable when determining which thickness will suit your project.
EPDM Rubber Roofing Maintenance
EPDM rubber roofs can be installed by mechanical means, ballasted or fully adhered. Seams are generally sealed with tape or liquid adhesives. The complete lack or minimization of multiple seams makes EPDM roofs virtually impenetrable. EPDM is hail, wind, ozone and fire resistant. It is also flexible in low temperatures and has impressive thermal shock durability.
A properly installed EPDM rubber roof will last up to 25 years. EPDM rubber roof maintenance is lowered by the streamline and durable nature of the materials. The minimized need for repair and upkeep makes EPDM roofing an excellent choice for businesses.
EPDM Rubber Roofing is Cost Effective and Reliable
EPDM rubber roofing generally costs between two and four dollars per square foot for materials and installation. Installation is generally around a third of the materials cost, far lower than many other roofing choices. Simplicity of design excels with this roofing choice.
