In commercial roofing, there are many choices for materials and installation methods, and we’re here to share some information on one of the best materials for a flat or low-slope commercial roof: EPDM rubber. Read on to learn more about this great roofing material.
EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Terpolymer) is a synthetic rubber roofing membrane commonly used in single-ply roofing due to its ease of installation, widespread availability, and exceptional performance. EPDM is closely related to ethylene propylene rubber, and shares its high loading performance, with superior mixing and extrusion. Allowing for a consistent thickness during manufacture, EPDM rubber sheeting boasts a high success rate with roofing contractors worldwide. This high-quality material has a relatively low cost of installation and is extremely stable once installed.
With extreme heat, ozone, and weather resistance, EPDM is a great choice for Wisconsin’s sometimes harsh climate. Ice, snow, and rain easily shed from its slick surface, and a high resistance to oils, solvents, acids, mold, moss, and mildew ensures that the surface stays slick and clean throughout its long lifespan. As an electrical insulator, EPDM ensures proper protection for the building, and even works well as a cable insulation.
Also used in the seals and weatherstripping around doors, windows and other openings of automobiles, EPDM delivers exceptional weather resistance and noise insulation. Its durability and flexibility also make it useful in other automotive parts, including many engine hoses and tubes.
With all this extreme versatility, EPDM makes an excellent roofing material. An EPDM rubber roof costs less, installs quicker, and lasts longer than many other roofing materials. With a warranty up to 30 years, your purchase is protected beyond the impressive properties of the material itself. At Community Roofing and Restoration, you can rest easy knowing that your EPDM rubber roof is installed by the hands of experienced roofing experts.
