The Benefits of EPDM Roofing
This high-quality polymer roofing product is most commonly used on commercial buildings because of the many benefits it offers. From an economical initial cost and ease in installation to simple maintenance, durability against all kinds of weather and a long-lasting lifespan of 20 years or more, it makes the perfect choice for commercial building owners who need to consider their roofing options.
So what makes the EPDM roof the one most chosen? Here are just some of its benefits:
Long Life Span.
EPDM roofs are known for their durability and lasting value. Working well on flat roofs, the single ply membrane of the EPDM roofing material puts much less weight on the roof and underlying structure, making it an excellent choice for flat or low slope roofs. When cared for properly, these materials are expected to last 20 years or longer. Plus, less weight means fewer structural problems down the line.
Low Maintenance. Featuring few seams, EPDM roofing rarely leaks, and even when it does, it can be fixed with primer/seam adhesive and the proper EPDM accessories.
UV & Weather
. Resistant to Ponding, UV damage, extreme weather, and high temperatures; all things that normally cause wear and tear on a roof, do not affect EPDM roofing materials as much — if at all. This helps keep maintenance low and costs down. Considered one of the more durable commercial roofing options, the EPDM system holds up to all kinds of weather. It doesn’t scuff or tear easily, so high winds and fluctuating temperatures usually aren’t a problem. And, while the roofing itself is black and may absorb some heat, the material is UV resistant, so it can handle the stress of even the sunniest of climates.
Low Cost. Costing of the membrane is very completive with other types of roofing systems; EPDM roof material has a low life-cycle cost. Not only is it less expensive to install, but is simple to fix when leaks do occur. This makes maintenance needs easy to handle, ultimately making it less expensive.
With so many benefits, it is no wonder why so many commercial property owners turn to EPDM roofing when a new roof is needed.
