EPDM (Rubber)

The EPDM Advantage

EPDM roofs have a proven track record for performance and longevity. Durability, design versatility and installation ease are some of the many reasons they are among the most popular commercial roofs for both new and reroof roofing applications. 

What is EPDM

Ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM) roofs have been around for over fifty years. It is very similar to rubber. It's tough, durable, waterproof, and easy to repair if the membrane is punctured. The colors vary, but it's often black or white. 

The Proper Building Types for EPDM

These single-ply rubber roofing membranes are typically used on low-slope commercial roofs. The thickness of the membrane can vary with the most common being forty-five mils (0.045") and sixty mils (0.060"). EPDM roofing systems are durable, require low maintenance, and the cost barrier is relatively low. 

Types of EPDM Applications

EPDM roofs are applied by mechanically attached systems, fully adhered systems or ballasted systems. Each application has unique advantages and disadvantages. To learn if an EPDM roof is a good choice for your Louisville, Lexington or Cincinnati commercial building, contact our team.
