EPDM COMMERCIAL ROOFING
Expert EPDM Roofing Installation and Repair in CT
First introduced in the 1970s and now a staple in the commercial roofing industry, EPDM roofing offers a high level of durability, flexibility, and UV resistance for low slope roofs. EPDM is short for Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer, a synthetic rubber material that derives from natural gas and oil. Choosing EPDM for your commercial building has many benefits including high resistance to ozone, fire and heat, hail and ice, wind, and other elements. EPDM is also an environmentally friendly and cost effective roofing solution as its reflective surface helps cut monthly energy costs.
EPDM roofing is available in black, which can have a similar appearance to slate grey, or white. It is also available in large sheets, up to 50 feet wide, or narrower widths as well if needed. Other than general, regular maintenance, there is no special treatment or application required to improve or increase the life of your EPDM roof. The expected lifespan of an EPDM is 50 years and the material includes a standard warranty in case problems should arise early on. There are three installation types for EPDM roofing: a ballasted system, a mechanically attached system, and a fully adhered system. At Brothers Remodeling Group, we use the tried and true method of the fully adhered system (FAS) which is lightweight and flexible. It helps prevent leaks, corrosion, and rust, offering a high level of protection to your building. Fully adhered EPDM roofing also lays flatter and is more aesthetically pleasing which can help increase resale value.
EPDM is specifically designed for non-residential applications and is a top choice for both new roofing or replacement roofing projects by architects and contractors.
