EPDM is a highly durable manufactured rubber roof membrane (ethylene propylene diene terpolymer) widely used on worldwide flat roof buildings, especially in the United States. Its two primary ingredients, ethylene, and propylene originate from oil and gas.
There are approximately 4 different kinds of roofing materials set up on flat roofs. EPDM roofing (aka rubber roofing) is among the most frequently used. EPDM roofing is most commonly understood as rubber roofing, rubber membrane roof, or rolled rubber roof. It's made from a mixture of recycled tires, sawdust, and slate dust. EPDM roof's most significant advantage over other kinds of flat roofing products is its lower cost and easy set-up.
With EPDM systems, installers also have numerous choices for installing the product. If desired, an adhesive can be used to adhere the membrane to the below surface, or fasteners can be used to attach it. A third option is ballasted with stone, which can enhance the roof's appearance. EPDM systems are durable, do not scratch or scuff easily, and can be quickly fixed if a leak does happen. Although this material is black and soaks up heat, it isn't quickly harmed by UV rays, which assists with its longevity.
