What is EDPM Roofing?

Today, EDPM roofing is a popular type of roofing for many larger commercial buildings. Although you may have heard the term “EDPM roofing,” you may not know exactly what it is or what it refers to.

EDPM roofing is a type of roofing system that uses a synthetic rubber material known as Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer (EDPM). This is a durable, long-lasting synthetic rubber membrane commonly used on low-sloped or flat roofs on commercial buildings.

Most EDPM Roofing membranes are black in color and come in large sheets. These sheets are then adhered to the surface of the roof using either mechanical fasteners or adhesive. You can seam these sheets together using a specially formulated adhesive or tape, which creates a watertight seal.

What are some of the benefits of EDPM roofing? One of the main benefits of EDPM roofing is its exceptional durability and resistance to ozone, UV radiation, extreme temperatures, and other forms of weathering. EDPM roofing is also low maintenance and resistant to mold, algae, and punctures. Generally, all you need to do to maintain your EDPM roofing is to clean it regularly and have periodic inspections performed. Additionally, EDPM roofing has good insulation properties, which can help commercial buildings become more energy efficient.
