Learn More About the Benefits of EPDM Roofing

As a business owner looking for roofing solutions you need to make an informed decision that best suits your requirements and interests. If EPDM roofing is one of the options you’re considering, you need to know what exactly this entails, what benefits you can expect, and if its suitable for your requirements.

What Is EPDM Roofing?

The term EPDM is any acronym for ethylene propylene diene monomer roofs which have been a popular choice for low-slope commercial buildings for over four decades. The two principal constituents of these roofs are ethylene and propylene, which are derived from oil and natural gas. EPDM roofs are a popular choice for new constructions as well as projects requiring roofing replacements.

Benefits of EPDM Roofing

EPDM roofs are very strong and resilient because the rubbery material is able to withstand extreme weather, hail, rain, and more. They are able to withstand the sun’s UV rays effectively and the roof will not splinter in very cold weather.  Your roof retains its structural integrity for a long time without the roof deteriorating. Structural movement does not result in membrane stress, which is an additional factor in its favor.

EPDM membrane systems also help to reduce your carbon footprint and your heating and cooling bills by increasing the underlying insulation. Another factor that makes this an environmentally friendly choice is the fact that these membranes can be structured by recycled material.

Since these roofs are waterproof, they are suitable for a variety of different commercial applications. This is a cost-effective roofing solution that helps in keeping project costs low.

With regular checks and maintenance drills, you can ensure that your EPDM roof lasts a long time and doesn’t require any expensive repairs.

EPDM roofing also presents a weight advantage, weighing less than other roofing materials, such as wood or slate. This makes the roofing material easier to cart and install.
