EPDM Roof Systems are comprised of a rubber material that is known for its long-lasting durability that can hold up against a wide range of temperature and weather conditions. This highly flexible and UV resistant material is ideal for retrofit systems. It’s typically available in black or white and is the leading choice for low-slope commercial roofs. EPDM has shown to maintain the longest service life and is highly resistant to fire, extreme heat, hail, and other environmental hazards.
The Benefits of EPDM Roofing
- Highly flexible and resistant to shattering in freezing temperatures.
- Withstands UV damage.
- Resistant to hail and other extreme weather conditions.
- Best value for low-slope roofing.
- Long life-span – does not deteriorate.
- Recyclable and energy efficient
EPDM roofing has three options for its installation method:
- Ballasting – This system requires the material to be loosely placed over the roof. It is secured only around the edges and is held into place with ballast, typically consisting of smooth river rock.
- Mechanically Attached – This method secures the material using screws or other mechanical fasteners.
- Full Adherence – Using special water-based or solvent-based adhesives, the EPDM roof is securely attached to the substrate.
PVC roofing is a highly pliable and durable material that can be used in a wide range of commercial roofing applications. PVC is particularly known for its ability to hold up against jet fuels and fatty oil exhaust, making it ideal for the food manufacturing, restaurant, and aviation industries. Read More…
TPO is a synthetic rubber compound that possesses a highly reflective quality not often found in commercial roofing systems. It has the ability to reflect up to 87% of UV rays, allowing it to maintain a temperature close to the ambient air, meaning heat is not transmitted into the interior of the building. Read More…
