Whether your roof is leaking, cracked or in need of an updated design, our team of expert installers will be able to find the most cost-effective and reliable solution to your problem. Our central location allows us to store different sized rolls of EPDM on-site - meaning we are sure to have a configuration available to meet your demanding expectations. EPDM usually comes as a singular sheet that can cover roofs of all sizes, so no joints are required. However, despite its fluid design, this cutting-edge material is notoriously difficult to install correctly, which is why you should hire a skilled and trusted company to take care of the job for you. Our installers are trained to the very highest standards, and continually adapt their skill set to accommodate the changes in the roofing sector. What's more, all of our installations come with a 25-year installation guarantee and a proven life expectancy of 50 years from the manufacturer.
Advantages to Using EPDM Roofing The biggest advantage that EPDM roofing has over other types of flat roofing materials is its cost. At .80 a square foot, this is one of the most inexpensive roofing materials around. It’s also extremely easy to install, so whether you do it yourself or you hire a professional, the costs are low in that area as well. EPDM rubber roofing is also very lightweight, so the roof deck doesn’t need any kind of reinforcement. In fact, the best way to install this material is to strip everything right off the roof, apply an adhesive then roll out the roofing. Because there are few seams, leaks are fairly rare and a good quality EPDM roof can last up to 20 years. Installers also have options of how they will install the material. In addition to using adhesive to attach it to the roof, there are also fasteners that can be used to anchor it in difficult to reach areas. It can also be ballasted with stone, which may help to improve its appearance. This type of roofing is fairly durable, doesn’t scratch or scuff easily, and can be easily repaired if a leak does occur. Liquid roofing membranes, latex tape or adhesives, and some types of rubber shingles can be installed over the EPDM roofing to repair and patch leaks that may develop over time. And while the material is black and does absorb heat, it isn’t easily damaged by UV rays, which helps it hold up well in sunny climates.
