EPDM Rubber Roofing
EPDM (ethylene propylene diene terpolymer) is a durable synthetic rubber roofing solution popular for flat and low-slope buildings. Extremely durable, EPDM comes in black or white and is one of the least expensive roofing systems to install. It is one the longest lasting roofing solutions with a life of 30 years or more when installed properly. Even so, it’s relatively lightweight and comes in long rolls, meaning few seams that could eventually fail and easy installation – you simply roll it out to install it. EPDM comes in different thicknesses and can be ballasted for further protection against damage. It is also fire-resistant and good in a wide range of temperatures, making it a potentially ideal choice for Northeast Ohio commercial building roofs. It’s also typically 100% recyclable.
EPDM is a popular choice because of its low cost, particularly if your commercial building roof isn’t going to have a lot of foot traffic and isn’t an area that could easily be damaged by debris or tree branches. We have installed dozens of EPDM roofing systems over our more than 40 years in business.
