EPDM Roofing

If you want to know about EPDM roofing membranes and how they can benefit your building, Kirberg can tell you everything you need to know.

EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer) roofing systems have grown quite popular in recent years, especially for commercial roofing solutions. Why? It’s grown popular because EPDM is a rubber roofing solution with a long lifespan. Kirberg can install the EPDM roof you need to protect your building for many years to come.

What Is EPDM Rubber Roofing?

Over the years, we’ve successfully installed hundreds of millions of square feet of EPDM roofing. Because EPDM’s roofing material is rubber, and it’s singly-ply, it only has one layer. This makes it lightweight and cost-effective to install. Most manufacturers guarantee a 20-year lifespan for their EPDM roofs, and regular maintenance and sealing can double that lifespan. EPDM membranes are fastened together with seams, but roofing contractors can install them in large pieces, sometimes using just one piece for the entire roof. Flat roof membranes require seams to hold them together, but the seams can sometimes fray and sustain damage. Fewer seams on your roofing membrane mean fewer places where it can sustain damage. Also, once your EPDM roof is laid, it can help decrease your heating and cooling costs while resisting almost all weather conditions.

What Maintenance Do EPDM Roofing Materials Need?

While an EPDM roof can be an excellent investment for your building, it does need regular maintenance, just like all other roofing systems. This is particularly true if you want to maximize your roof’s lifespan, which could extend over 40 years. Luckily, EPDM roof maintenance is relatively simple. You should schedule regular maintenance checks with your roofing contractor and call them immediately if you spot a puncture in the membrane or wear and tear around the seams. Your contractor can repair these problems quickly and efficiently, so your facility doesn’t experience any downtime.

Residential EPDM Roofs

While contractors usually install EPDM roofs on commercial buildings, multiple major manufacturers make white EPDM roof membranes for residential flat roof installations. A white EPDM membrane will reflect sunlight while also protecting your roof from other types of weather damage. However, not all residential roofing contractors know how to install an EPDM roof, so you should choose a roofing contractor who has experience installing this type of roof for commercial and residential buildings. Fortunately, Kirberg’s roofing professionals have extensive experience installing EPDM membranes on commercial buildings and homes. We can use our 100 years of roofing industry experience to select the best long-term flat roofing solution for your home.
