What Is Epdm Rubber Roofing?
Commonly called EPDM, ethylene propylene diene monomer is one of the most durable and long-lasting synthetic rubber roofing materials that are used on low-pitched and flat roofs. It’s popular due to its versatility, and this rubber roof is easy to install, too. Most companies like to use EPDM for their roof install because it can be added to a surface that is mechanically attached or fully adhered. Mostly, EPDM membranes are joined together with primer or seam tape.
What Are The Physical Properties of EPDM?
EPDM flat roofs have a rubber membrane that is the most popular for homeowners and commercial building owners. This is due to its easy installation, repair, and maintenance. With a tear-resistant layer, the rubber roofs are abrasion resistant, too. Some of the physical features of EPDM are similar to that of natural rubber, but the best bit is that it’s designed for weather resistance. This resistance is why it’s the best possible material choice for a roof.
There are many brands for rubber roofing; the Classic Bond brand is the one that we use. It comes with a 20-year guarantee, and these are roofs that have been used around the world for the past half a century. There are a lot of benefits that come with EPDM, and some of those include:
