Installation Process

EPDM Roof Systems

The success of an EPDM roofing system significantly depends on its installation. The process begins with thorough site preparation, ensuring the roof deck is clean, dry, and smooth. Following this, the EPDM membrane is rolled out, adhered to, mechanically fixed, or ballasted to secure it in place. Please view this step-by-step guide for more insight. Please note that DIY installations are not recommended—professional installations result in higher quality results that last longer.
