What is EPDM Roofing?
EPDM roofing is an elastomeric polymer that can be applied in one of three ways. This rubber roofing option comes with a variety of benefits.
- EPDM has been used for around 40 years for low slope roofing
- Resistant to extreme heat and extreme cold
- When properly installed and maintained, will still perform like new after 30 years
- Withstands UV damage
- Will not deteriorate
- Available in large sheets, for fewer seams
- Available in white, for maximum light reflection
There are 3 different ways an EPDM roof can be installed, fully adhered, mechanically attached, or traditionally ballasted. With any of the three methods, the seams are sealed with a specially formulated adhesive or tape, to ensure water proofing.
The fully adhered method is applied using panels that measure 30 ft x 100 feet and are manually attached using mechanical fasteners and adhesion. This method is lightweight, applicable to many roof types, and popular for very large jobs due to the large panel sizes. The mechanically attached method involves the use of is similar to the fully adhered method in the fact that it is also lightweight and applicable to many roof styles and sizes.
The traditional ballast method is low cost, but more time consuming and not a valid option for all roof types. This style is the heaviest and is typically recommended for roofing newly constructed buildings. A common ballast will have a layer of rock or concrete over the top.
