4 Advantages of EPDM Roofing

EPDM (ethylene propylene diene terpolymer) is a roofing membrane widely known for its durability. Commonly used on low-sloped commercial buildings, EPDM is resistant to severe weather conditions and is one of the least expensive commercial roofing products.

Here are a few benefits of EPDM roofing:

1. Easy to install and maintain. As a single-ply roofing membrane, EPDM is lightweight and can be installed without electric-powered tools, making installation process fast and easy. Once installed, EPDM roofs are very low maintenance.

2. Extremely durable. The EPDM membrane provides owners with a dependable roofing system over their heads. Rubber roofs are highly resistant to water and steam. If properly installed, an EPDM roof can last longer than 40 years before the need for roof replacement.

3. Lower energy costs. EPDM can help reduce your energy bills during the winter and summer. It can be coated with heat reflective paint to reduce heat transfer in the summer, leading to a cooler and more comfortable home, while also easing the burden on your air conditioner.

4. Eco-friendly. Rubber roofs are eco-friendly because they’re energy-efficient and 100% recyclable. If sustainability is important to you, installing an EPDM roof can help you achieve your goals by reducing your carbon footprint.
