EPDM is one of the most popular roofing materials on the market — and for good reason. It is an inexpensive, durable, and flexible roofing membrane material that's best used on flat and low-pitched roofs. In terms of durability, it's comparable to many latex rubber materials — its high resistance to UV rays makes it a popular choice for long-term use, and its flexibility makes it easy to stretch out over large surface areas quickly.

Benefits Of EPDM Roofing Installation
As roofing professionals, we know that EPDM outperforms the competition — but EPDM has some benefits that are less talked about. Its high elasticity and superior mechanical properties don't just make it an industry standard in roofing — they also make it ideal for use in many other applications.
- In terms of maintenance, EPDM roofs are very low-maintenance. They do not need to be sealed as often as other materials, and they can last up to 50 years with the right care.
- EPDM rubber membranes are resilient — they can withstand temperatures from -58° to 302°. That makes them ideal for use in a number of industries, including commercial construction.
- EPDM roofs help lower cooling costs in two ways: By reflecting heat, they keep the interiors of your buildings cool. Second, because they're breathable, they allow heat and vapor to escape from inside your building.
- EPDM rubber is the most cost-effective, making it a great value alternative compared to more expensive synthetic roofing materials, like TPO and PVC. A single-ply membrane, EPDM rubber is very easy to install — saving you time and money.
