EPDM Roofing

EPDM, a highly durable synthetic rubber roofing membrane, is a globally recognized material for flat roofing systems. It stands as one of the most popular choices for flat roof installations across the United States, known for its resilience and effectiveness.

EPDM, short for Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer rubber, is a high-density synthetic rubber widely used in single-ply roofing systems. Favored for its straightforward application and ready availability, EPDM is an economical roofing solution. When properly installed, it can last for 30 to 50 years, making it both an affordable and durable choice for flat roofing systems.

EPDM Installation Methods and Advantages

Fully Adhered: This method offers the longest lifespan for EPDM roofing systems, ensuring robust and reliable coverage.

Ballasted: Utilizes large stones to hold the roofing material in place, a unique approach that secures the roof effectively.

Mechanically Attached: Involves nailing the roofing material, making it suitable for areas with moderate winds. However, a potential drawback is the risk of puncturing the waterproof sheet with nails.

EPDM excels in UV resistance and can withstand various temperatures, contributing significantly to energy savings.

At our company, we specialize in complete replacement, removal, or recovery of EPDM single-ply systems ranging from 40 to 60 mil thickness. Our systems come with a two-decade manufacturer’s warranty, and we offer EPDM in both white and black to enhance energy efficiency.

EPDM, or ethylene propylene diene terpolymer, is a popular choice among business owners and homeowners due to its versatility across different budgets, climates, and building types. Its numerous benefits make it a standout option in the roofing market.

EPDM roofing is recognized for its affordability, especially when compared to other commercial roofing materials like TPO, PVC, and metal. As a single-ply membrane, it offers ease of installation, which further reduces overall installation costs. Additionally, the replacement expenses for EPDM are relatively modest, making it a budget-friendly option for long-term roofing solutions.


When correctly installed, EPDM roofs are known for their durability, typically lasting around 20 years. With proper care and maintenance, combined with its inherent UV resistance, the lifespan of an EPDM roof can extend significantly, potentially up to 50 years, providing long-term roofing solutions.


EPDM roofs are renowned for their minimal maintenance needs compared to other roofing materials. Essentially, you can install it and have little to worry about thereafter. However, to further extend its lifespan, implementing a regular maintenance schedule can be beneficial, ensuring its longevity and performance over the years.


EPDM roofing contributes to reducing cooling costs through two key mechanisms: by reflecting heat, it maintains a cooler interior environment in your building; and its breathable nature allows internal heat and vapor to escape, further aiding in temperature regulation.

Additionally, EPDM serves as an effective insulator, providing warmth during colder weather. While it allows for breathability, its composition is not permeable enough to let moisture in, thereby aiding in reducing heating costs. This balance of insulation and breathability makes EPDM an energy-efficient choice for both warm and cold climates.


EPDM, as a rubber membrane, exhibits remarkable resilience. Its flexibility allows it to adapt around features like gutters, pipes, and skylights, while also possessing the strength to endure extreme weather conditions. Impressively resistant to a wide temperature range, EPDM can withstand temperatures as low as -58°F and as high as 302°F, demonstrating its versatility and durability in various environmental conditions.


EPDM roofing stands out for its environmental benefits. At the end of its lifespan, an EPDM roof can be recycled into new roofing materials, ensuring minimal waste. This recyclability highlights the sustainability of EPDM, as very little of the material ends up in landfills when a membrane is replaced, contributing positively to environmental conservation efforts.
