Introducing EPDM Commercial Roofing by Roofing Center

Understanding EPDM

EPDM, short for Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer, is a widely used low-slope roofing option renowned for its remarkable durability and cost-efficiency. This flexible and resilient membrane, often called a “rubber roof,” is available in black and white colors, widths, and thicknesses.

EPDM's Origins

EPDM roofing debuted in the early 1960s and gained significant popularity in the 1970s. This popularity rise was partly driven by steep price increases in asphalt-based roof systems during the Middle East Oil Embargo. The critical components of EPDM membranes are ethylene and propylene, which give them their robustness and exceptional weather resistance.

Cost Considerations

EPDM roofs are often the most budget-friendly choice for flat and low-slope roofs. However, the exact quote will depend on the installation process and any additional components or rooftop details required for your roof assembly.

Advantages of EPDM Roofing


Exceptional longevity

EPDM rubber roofs boast the most extended service life in the industry, potentially lasting up to 30 years with proper service and maintenance.


Environmental considerations

EPDM roofs are environmentally friendly as they are recyclable. Additionally, you can choose between black and white EPDM roofs based on your climate, allowing for customization to maximize energy savings.


Versatile and lightweight

EPDM's lightweight and flexible nature allows it to be used on flat, low, and steep slope roofs, making it an ideal roof-over solution for many structures.


Resilience in all conditions

EPDM roofs are renowned for their durability and ability to perform exceptionally well in various climates. These membranes exhibit high resistance to wind, hail, UV radiation, thermal shock, and extreme temperatures, ensuring a watertight roof that will stand the test of time.

EPDM Roofing Installation

EPDM rubber roofs offer three installation methods, each with its advantages. You can choose from adhered, mechanically fastened, or ballasted systems. Adhered means the roof is glued to the surface beneath it, while the most common method is mechanically attached, using fasteners screwed into the deck through the insulation. Ballasted systems are held in place by smooth stones or concrete pavers over the insulation.
