EPDM Rubber Roofing in PlanoReliability Starts At The Top!
Assisting Frisco Commercial Property Owners Since 1997
EPDM (ethylene propylene diene terpolymer) rubber roofing 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 7.5 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. Consult our Plano EPDM rubber roofing contractors at Texas Star Roofing to determine which thickness will best suit your project.
EPDM Rubber Roofing Maintenance
These types of 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. The need for maintenance is lowered by the streamlined and durable nature of the materials. The minimized need for repair and upkeep makes EPDM roofing an excellent choice for businesses.
EPDM Roofing Is Cost-Effective & Reliable
This style of roofing generally costs between $2 and $4 per square foot for materials and installation. The price of 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.
