EPDM "Rubber Roofing"

EPDM, also known as "rubber roofing," is widely regarded in the roofing industry for its long useful life, low carbon footprint, and variety of assembly methods. While EPDM is commonly used in commercial and industrial roofing, its versatility allows it to be used for residential applications such as carports or roof patios. EPDM has great potential in areas such as reflectivity, cost savings, and low maintenance, regardless of the building on which it is installed. 

Performance & Sustainability

EPDM can last 40-50 years if properly installed and maintained, and it can withstand temperatures ranging from -40°F to 300°F.
EPDM is typically black, but it can be coated with a white acrylic paint containing titanium dioxide to increase UV reflectivity. This helps to keep the building cool, boosts energy efficiency, and extends the useful life of the roof.
The material is made primarily of recycled tires and is remarkably lightweight. It can be laid out in sheets or rolled out in sections with widths ranging from 7.5 to 50 feet and thicknesses ranging from 45 mils to 90 mils.

Efficiency & Strength

EPDM's layered composition is extremely tough, with excellent resistance to fire, thermal shock, punctures, rain, and wind. If damage does occur, it is relatively simple to repair with a patch or a layer of liquid membrane.
The membrane also has excellent weather resistance and is an outstanding second-generation roof-over application.
Dimensionally stable while expanding and contracting with building movement (300% elongation with 100% memory)
Available in 45, 60, 90 or 120 mil thickness

Application Methods

FULLY-ADHERED: These systems are generally installed using large sheets of EPDM, reducing the number of edges and virtually eliminating the possibility of wind penetration and lifting the roofing materials off the building. Fully adhered systems are adaptable, and they are recommended for structures of all sizes and configurations, including high-slope applications. The fully adhered system is lightweight and strong, and technological advancements have made it one of the most popular choices in many regions.
MECHANICALLY-FASTENED: These EPDM roofing systems are lightweight and can be installed on almost any type of structure as long as the decking is strong enough to support the fasteners through the membrane or to the side laps. Because of its strength and versatility, this type of system can benefit a wide range of buildings.
