Roofing with EPDM Rubber
Coast Mountain Roof is proud to be able to provide our customers with a selection of 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. 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.
