EPDM Roofing Professionals
EPDM roofing is most commonly known as rubber roofing, rubber membrane roofing, or rolled rubber roofing. It’s made of a mixture of recycled tires, sawdust, and slate dust. EPDM stands for (ethylene propylene diene monomer), which is an elastomeric compound that is very resilient material and can be used in many different applications. EPDM comes in 10 to 20 feet wide rolls that are usually 50 or 100 linear feet long. See this video for an example of how these roofs are installed.
EPDM can be attached mechanically or fully adhered. It can withstand extreme cold without breaking or cracking or becoming brittle. Superior to hail resistance usually has up to a 40-year life expectancy. This product can withstand ultraviolet light, weathering and abrasion. Contact Us today for a free, no-obligation estimate.
Chicagoland EPDM Roofing Benefits
EPDM ROOFING DURABILITY
EPDM roofing products feature superior durability, flexibility and UV resistance making them a great choice for flat roofs. EPDM roofs perform well in extreme weather and temperature swings – something we are used to in Chicago. EPDM roofing has thermoset properties, which means it does not change shape due to heating or cooling, remaining quite flexible, regardless of the temperature. This makes it an ideal choice for flat roofs throughout Chicagoland.
EPDM roofing has excellent impact resistance protecting your structure from branches, hail or whatever else mother nature blows your way. It also resists damage from acids, solvents, and other chemicals that may exhaust through rooftop ventilation systems. EPDM roofs have cyclical membrane fatigue resistance and superior resistance to extreme heat and fire. EDPM roofing will not peel, crack or become brittle over time contributing to its long lifespan.
EASE OF INSTALLATION
EPDM can be installed ballasted (distributed smooth rock), fully adhered, or mechanically attached. EPDM roofing is faster and easier to install than most other flat roof materials. EPDM is a relatively light material and comes in a wide variety of sizes in convenient rolls. For unusual roof shapes, EPDM easily contours to angles. EPDM roofing is well-suited to an application over any large, flat roof surface in Chicagoland. Contact Us today for a free, no-obligation EPDM roofing estimate.
