EPDM Roofing: A Smart Choice for Commercial Roofs
When it comes to commercial roofing, it’s important for companies to choose a roof that will last over several years without costing a fortune. That’s why EPDM roofing is a smart choice for businesses. Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer, or EPDM, can last up to 25 years. EPDM rubber roofing is known for its ability to withstand even the most extreme temperatures and hazards.
Why Choose Rubber Roofing?
Although rubber roofing might not sound durable, it actually has proven itself as a long-lasting roofing option for more than 40 years. Because the rubber roofing material is so lightweight, there’s less weight on the building itself, which makes it last longer. In addition to resisting high temperatures and fires, it’s also resistant to UV radiation, which typically wears out a traditional roof.
A Simple, Cost-Effective Solution
In addition to its longevity, rubber roofing is also simple and relatively inexpensive to install. It is available in both black and white, but most customers choose black for its lower cost. Both methods of applying the rubber material—the splice adhesive method and the peel-and-stick method—involve the use of adhesives to secure the EPDM rubber to the building.
Although there are advantages to both methods of application, the peel-and-stick method is the more popular option because the adhesive tape provides a stronger bond when it is applied directly to the seam of the rubber roofing material.
