Features and Benefits of EPDM Roofing Systems
EPDM roofing is a popular commercial, low slope roofing solution that has been installed on commercial roofs for a number of decades. There are various reasons why EPDM commercial roofing is a popular choice among commercial customers.
EPDM roofing has a long life expectancy and can withstand extreme weather conditions, such as hail and high winds. With proper care, on average, an EPDM roofing membrane installation can have a service life of up to 30 years.
EPDM is a highly flexible material, which makes it easy to install and work with. It can conform to the shape of the roof and accommodate building movement without cracking.
EPDM is resistant to sunlight, ozone, and various weather elements. This resistance helps prevent the material from degrading over time. EPDM functions exceptionally well in very cold temperatures, including temperatures as low as -40°F to -50°F, and even lower. This material also functions well in extremely high heat conditions and provides excellent resistance to acid rain.
EPDM roofing generally requires minimal maintenance. Regular inspections and simple repairs can help prolong its lifespan.
EPDM roofs can have reflective properties, helping to reduce heat absorption and energy costs associated with cooling the building. EPDM is also a recyclable material.
