Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer (EPDM)
Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer (EPDM) is durable and resistant to general wear and tear and an excellent material for low slope roofing applications. EPDM roofing is a synthetic rubber that acts as a roofing membrane special for flat roofs. The EPDM roofing membrane is versatile and allows for many installation options.
• Developed in America in the 1960’s, EPDM roofing is designed to exhibit superior flexibility, high strength, and outstanding weathering in practically all climates. The EPDM roof will not crack, split, or peel, and is completely resistant to atmospheric pollution. EPDM roofing is also environmentally friendly, and is unaffected by UV light and ozone. The elasticity of EPDM roofing allows it to elongate to over 300% to accommodate temperature cycling and building movements. An EPDM roof system has a life expectancy of about 20 years, during which next to no maintenance is required.
• EPDM roofing comes in all sizes and can be installed in one piece, eliminating the problems associated with parting joints that cause many roof leaks and other common problems associated with flat roofs.
• Because EPDM roofing can be installed in one piece, its installation requires minimal seaming. We offer EPDM roofing installation services for all kinds of low slope and flat roof applications. Additionally, EPDM roofing has a low life cycle cost, as it requires little maintenance.
