EPDM Rubber Roofs
A roofing installation for a flat-roofed commercial building takes a much different approach than a residential roof installation. Flat roofs require a durable material like EPDM rubber and an experienced installer. This is why you shouldn’t trust just any roofing company for your EPDM rubber roof project – you need a contractor with experience with EPDM and flat roofs. Call Community Roofing and Restoration for your EPDM Rubber Roof project in Milwaukee and the surrounding areas.
EPDM (ethylene propylene diene terpolymer) rubber roof membrane is an extremely durable roofing material. Its two primary ingredients, ethylene and propylene, are derived from oil and natural gas. Available in black and white and in a variety of sizes and installation types, EPDM has proven to be the go-to material for commercial flat roofs.
Properly installed and maintained EPDM roofs can deliver long life, and after over 40 years of usage in commercial applications, EPDM continues to perform well even on installations dating back to the 1970s. Over the years new innovations have been added to the material, such as seam tapes replacing liquid adhesives, and super-durable 90 mil thicknesses. These new innovations have only strengthened EPDM rubber roofs as the material of choice in commercial applications.
White EPDM material also enhances the efficiency of the roof, cutting cooling costs as well as providing a unique look. Because flat roofs are ideal for a solar panel installation, EPDM roofs are a popular choice for highly-efficiency building construction projects.
