Understanding EPDM Roofing Systems

The two main ingredients of EPDM, ethylene and propylene, are made using oil and natural gas. The material comes in black or white options, and it’s available in many different widths and thicknesses. EPDM can be installed using adhesive or mechanical attachments to the seams. Compared to other commercial roofing systems, it’s a breeze to install since it’s made in large sheets and rolls. This ease of installation also makes it very affordable. If you have any questions about EPDM roofing, please do not hesitate to call us.

Common EPDM Roofing Issues

While EPDM roofs typically have fewer problems than other types of roofs, they are not completely indestructible. Common issues with EPDM roofs include the following:

• Shrinkage

• Punctures

• Seam Failure

Proper installation and regular maintenance can go a long way toward preventing such issues, so be sure to choose a reputable company like Texas Disaster Restoration if you decide to have an EPDM roof installed on your property.

Some people may be alarmed at the higher price tag of EPDM roofs when compared to other materials. Please note that you’ll be getting great value for your dollar. You’ll save money in the long term on repair and maintenance costs by using a more durable product.

Frequently Asked Questions About EPDM Roofs

1If I’m replacing my old roof with an EPDM one, does the old roof need to be completely removed?
While the old roof should typically be removed, it can be left intact as long as the EPDM manufacturer’s substrate preparations are done and the roof and deck are inspected by a professional and found to be in good condition.
2 Can EPDM roofing be used on freezer applications?
These applications usually have thicker insulation. Combined with EPDM’s stability during extreme temperatures, it makes for a good use.
3What types of roofs can I have an EPDM roof installed over?
EPDM roofs have a range of accessories and components available to make them versatile, so they can be installed over any roof type. EPDM can be glued to wood decking or mechanically anchored to metal decking. As long as the structure is strong enough to support the weight of the roof, there are few limits.
