The roof of your home is one of the most important and integral components of your home, its health effects your home’s energy efficiency, waterproofing, structural integrity, and more. As a result, it is important that you choose a high-quality roofing material that is right for your home. EPDM rubber roofing is not only the best waterproof surface for your roof, but it has a better lifespan, flexibility and overall resistance to the elements than other roofing materials.
EPDM has a lifespan much greater than other forms of roofing material, lasting typically 30-50 years. It does not deteriorate over time, making it incredibly durable and cost-effective.
This is in part because EPDM waterproof roofing is resistant to ozone and UV damage, more so than any other roofing material. It is fire retardant, and elements such as wind, water, and even hail won’t damage the surface. EPDM is highly durable in extreme temperatures, it resists thermal shock and will not crack in very cold temperatures. The waterproof rubber roofing is a fantastic insulator, ensuring the house is cool in the summer and warmer in the winter. It can also withstand structural movement and settling of the house without any stress to the material.
EPDM also has a very simple and inexpensive application process. You can purchase rolls in 50 feet wide sheets, so most roofs can be covered with a single sheet, essentially making them watertight. When installed as a single sheet you don’t need to worry about sealing the seams, which usually can risk leakage over time. Waterproof rubber roofing is lightweight, making it easier to move and shape during installation, and very easy to repair. Most homeowners can make repairs themselves in the unlikely event of any tears.
Because of its durability, reusability and long lifespan EPDM waterproof roofing is considered very environmentally friendly. Most EPDM rubber roofs are also made out of recycled materials.
