If you’re in the market for roof replacement, there are plenty of roofing options to choose from. One popular commercial roofing option is a rubber roof or EPDM roof. They are widely used for low-slope commercial buildings across the country.

EPDM roofs offer several benefits that make them a popular roofing choice. Keep reading to know what these benefits are.

Benefits of EPDM Roofing

1. Budget-Friendly

Compared to other types of commercial roofing, the cost of EPDM roofing is quite low. EPDM roofs are also easier to install as they’re a single-ply membrane. This can help you save on installation costs. If you’re looking for a cost-efficient roof for your commercial property, they might be an effective choice.

2. Easy Maintenance

EPDM roofs require fewer maintenance efforts than most other commercial roofing options. However, we still recommend getting a professional to inspect your roof once in a while. You can do visual checks on your roof for blisters or debris. While you can easily sweep away the debris, to remove blisters you will require the services of a professional roofing contractor.

3. Energy-Efficient

You can save costs on your energy bills by installing an EPDM roof. These roofs reflect heat, making it easy for vapor to escape your building. They help keep your interiors cool and well-ventilated, so you can cut down on air conditioning expenses.

EPDM roofs are also natural insulators. They do not allow too much moisture into your building and can keep it warm during the winter. So they also help you save on heating costs. If you’re searching for roofs that will help lower your energy consumption, opt for EPDM roofs.

4. Durable

When properly installed, EPDM roofs can last for up to 20 years. With proper care and maintenance, they can even last up to 50. New manufacturing formulas also make these roofs impervious to radiation. This expands their durability as they’re protected from UV damage. Most EPDM roofs also withstand severe weather conditions. They can brave against wind and hail of up to three inches and temperatures ranging from -58° to 302°.

5. Eco-Friendly

It takes very little effort and resources to manufacture EPDM roofs. And once your roof reaches the end of its lifespan, you can always recycle it for new roofing material. You don’t have to worry about contributing to toxic landfills when replacing your EPDM roof.

6. Adaptable

Due to their rubber membrane, EPDM roofs are pretty flexible. You can mold them around gutters, pipes, and skylights. The lightweight material also makes it easy to adapt it to any roof shape or style. Their ability to reflect heat and withstand UV damage makes them a compatible choice for roofs with rooftop gardens and solar cell arrays. EPDM roofs are also strong enough to wit
