Let us explain why an EPDM is a great choice for your commercial building.

What is an EPDM roof?

EPDM is a durable synthetic rubber roofing membrane that is widely used throughout the country. Ethylene and propylene are its two primary ingredients. This roofing material comes in a variety of widths, ranging from seven and a half feet to 50 feet. Roofers can install EPDM ballasted, mechanically attached, or fully adhered. They can also seal the seams with specially formulated tape or liquid adhesives. EPDM is an excellent choice because of its proven and reliable performance.

Benefits and Features of EPDM Roofs

As a specialist in roof repairs in Largo FL, we recommend this roof material because of its exceptional durability and service life. According to data from field applications, EPDM has the roofing industry’s longest average service life.

It has the potential to last for over 50 years. In addition, testing confirmed that its physical characteristics do not change within 30 years. An EPDM roof’s long-term performance leads to less disruption to the environment and low life cycle costs. It helps keep less durable roof materials out of landfills.

EPDM stays stable under different temperatures; we can install this roofing system throughout the year. This roofing material can resist fluctuations in UV rays, ozone, and temperature. In addition, it possesses long-term weathering ability.

EPDM is also consistent in its level of performance thanks to strict quality control by the manufacturers. It can also benefit from ENERGY STAR®-approved coatings. These coatings improve the roof’s energy efficiency and can save you money on utility costs.

An EPDM roofing system can protect your commercial building from any kind of weather and last for many years. It is also highly energy-efficient and can reduce your building’s energy consumption.
