EPDM Roofing

Roofing with EPDM Rubber

EPDM Rubber Roofing Details

Coast Mountain Roof is proud to provide a selection of EPDM Rubber roofing methods that suit residential and commercial needs.

In addition to torch-on roofing for low slope and commercial roofs, we offer EPDM rubber roofing as well.

What is EPDM Roofing?

EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer) is an extremely durable roofing membrane designed primarily for use on low slope or flat roofs. The membrane primarily consists of ethylene and propylene synthetic rubbers, and can be applied to a roof using a number of different methods.

EPDM commercial roofing systems are versatile and long-lasting and offer maximum strength and durability. The material comes in either black or white, and while both are durable, white EPDM has the added benefit of absorbing less heat from the sun than black EPDM. This roofing system has been used by roofing professionals for over 40 years, and in that time it has proven to be the longest lasting roofing system on average compared to any other commercial system.

As more emphasis is placed on the sustainable performance of building materials, EPDM continues to be the roofing material that stands the test of time. Other benefits of choosing an EPDM roofing system for your commercial roofing project include high resistance to all types of weather as well as ultraviolet rays, and the ease with which EPDM roofs can be patched should a leak ever be found. This will spare you and your business from having to deal with prolonged repairs that may otherwise occur with different commercial roofing systems.

In addition to its strength and durability, there are a number of ways EPDM roofing systems can be installed. Methods vary according to exactly what type of roof upon which the material is being installed, but the three main ways of applying EPDM roofing systems are mechanical fastening, ballasted with stones or fully adhered to the roof. Recent improvements to splicing techniques (attaching seams of rubber sheets) involved in EPDM installation has also contributed to the material’s ability to remain durable for extended periods of time. Because EPDM remains stable over a wide range of temperatures, it allows for year-round installation in all climates.

Where to Use EPDM?

EPDM roofing is ideal for flat or low sloped roofing systems that are vulnerable to extreme weather conditions. The practicality and durability of an EPDM rubber roof makes it a great option for both commercial and residential buildings with a low slope. Designed to protect structures from wind, rain, hail, extreme temperatures, UV radiation, thermal shock, and more, EPDM roofing can deliver outstanding results to a variety of building types. From office buildings, hospitals, and schools to warehouses and homes, EPDM provides long-lasting performance no matter the climate.

How Much Does an EPDM Roof Cost?

In comparison to other roofing types, an EPDM flat roof is the least expensive roofing system to install and repair. While the average cost of materials varies, the overall cost will depend on the condition of the existing roof, the underlying deck, the type and thickness of the insulation, roofing features (chimney, skylight, etc.), as well as the overall project difficulty, accessibility, and location.

    Really happy with the roofing service we received from the team at Coast Mountain roofing. Both Brad’s were helpful and responsive right from quoting through installation and after. When we weren’t 100% happy with the clean up, Brad G (the roofing company owner) came out personally to finish up for us. What more could we ask for! Would happily use them again but hopefully won’t need to for many years! We have already referred them to neighbours in Vancouver.

    Excellent Roofing Company, Fast and Professional. Called up Coast Mountain for a new metal roof for my laneway house project in Vancouver. They were very professional, well priced and did a great roof installation. They were in and out, and cleaned up. They were very knowledgeable and provided me with good advice on the best system. I definitely would recommend them and use them again.

  • I had a lot of issues with the roofing company I used to re-roof my house. I've been doing a ton of research to find out about correct venting and torch-on roofing applications for low slope roofs. It's been very difficult to find the information I needed and I had the good fortune of talking with Brad of Coast Mountain and found he is a very knowledgeable roofer. Brad provided much insight and I really appreciate how much he went out of his way to give me his honest opinions and what seems to be vast knowledge of the roofing industry. I found Brad to be very honest and definitely made me wish I had found his roofing company to redo my roof instead of the company that did my roof, I would have avoided a huge headache. Definitely would recommend Brad and his company for anyone looking to do their roof. Thanks Brad!! 🙂

    My simple asphalt shingle roof was leaking after just 15 years so this time around I wanted to make sure I got the right shingle roof installer. I was very impressed by Brad and his roofing teams professionalism. He's very responsive and honest with his quote. The roofing contractors came on schedule and got it all done in two days, they cleaned up properly. The roof looks very solid. We were glad that we chose this roofing company! Would recommend it.

    My had to replace my old my roof last year. I got a recommendation from my agent to use service from the company. Because my house has a pretty steep driveway, and there were a big load of materials to remove and bring up, I expected the project to be the most complicated given the experience I had with other contractors for smaller installations like heating and piping. However, the team hired by company did an excellent job. They were always on time although they had to travel everyday from Surrey to Lions Bay in three weeks. They just came and left everyday till the whole roof was done. The only thing they asked from me was to open my garage for power supply. The company did inspection themselves after completion and did not find any problem. I waited almost a year to write this review because I wanted to make sure that I had no leakage with my new roof. It is supposed to last 40-50 years... but for now, I would recommend this company for any roofing project.

    We recently had our 26 year old asphalt roof and skylight replaced by Coast Mountain Roofing. After receiving several other quotes we decided on CMR. Owen, our estimator was great to deal with. He explained all our roofing options and was helpful answering any questions.The roofing crew was led by a guy named Dexter. They were a great bunch to deal with and always mindful of the autumn weather...not starting any section they couldn't finish up by days end. We were also impressed by the little extras like gable coverings, rain diverters and other flashings that were a big improvement from the original roofing. We would not hesitate to recommend Coast Mountain to anyone that is looking for a roof replacement. Rod and Sharon
