Rubber such as EPDM (ethylene-propylene-diene monomer) are renowned for their strength and durability, they are also known to be excellent for thermal insulation and water resistance. EPDM membranes offer unmatched resistance to ozone, UV radiation and high or low temperatures making them very versatile as to where they are used. Hence the life expectancy of EPDM rubber is 50 years plus and it comes with a full manufacturer’s guarantee with the added bonus that EPDM rubber roofing dramatically lowers the carbon footprint of a structure in a number of ways.
The lifespan of a rubber roof is up to 5 times that of a felt roof and 2-3 times longer than an asphalt roof. EPDM is installed in an exceptionally more eco-friendly way, without the lengthy use of heat and flames. Combined with these properties are the facts that EPDM rubber sheet roofing provides excellent thermal properties and is an outstanding sealant against water penetration. EPDM membranes require no or only little maintenance once installed.
