Ethylene propylene diene terpolymer (EPDM) roofing is one of the most popular flat roof solutions today, and for good reason. To help you determine whether EPDM is right for you, expert roofing contractor Quality One Roofing Inc. shares some key information about the product below.
As consumers have become increasingly conscious about the environmental impact of their purchases, eco-friendly products like EPDM have gained popularity. Made from raw materials, EPDM roofs are 100% recyclable, significantly reducing the waste that goes into landfills.
EPDM roofs can be manufactured in light colors to allow better solar reflectivity. Light-colored roofs are ideal for homes in hotter climates because they reflect heat from the sun rather than absorbing it. This helps maintain cooler indoor temperatures in the building underneath. It also helps to control moisture levels, reducing the chance of mold growth. All of these factors lead to reduced need for roof repair.
EPDM roofs can last over 20 years if they’re properly maintained. They’re also impervious to radiation and sun heat damage and resistant to high winds and hail. As a rubber membrane, EPDM is flexible enough to bend around gutters, pipes and skylights. To fully optimize the benefits and long life of your EPDM roof, stay on top of roofing restoration and maintenance.
