When it comes to commercial roofing, the choice of material matters just as much, if not more, than it does for residential projects. Commercial roofs must stand up to all the same stressors as a residential roof, like harsh winters and the variable New England climate, but due to their slope, shape and size, commercial roofs must be made from the highest quality materials available.
Commercial roofs tend to have a lower slope than residential roofs, or they can even be completely flat. Also, commercial roofs usually have a massive area and an irregular shape. We know that when it comes time to replace or repair your commercial roof, you will be looking for the best possible materials for the project. At Eagle Rivet, one of our favorite options for commercial roofing is EPDM. We prefer EPDM because it is the most capable of withstanding the great range of weather we get here in New England. Harsh winters have always been a part of New England living, but in recent years commercial roofs here have also had to survive through Hurricane Irene, Super Storm Sandy, and a number of other rough storms and weather patterns.
Many in our industry would agree that EPDM roofing is the best choice for your next commercial or industrial roofing project in New England. Below, we’ll highlight and discuss in detail the following three reasons as to why EPDM and Eagle Rivet are the best choices for your commercial roofing needs:
EPDM – or ethylene propylene diene monomer (M-class) – is a synthetic rubber that can be used in a wide number of applications. Notably, EPDM is used for weather sealing on automobiles and has been a preferred choice for roofing projects for decades.
The popularity of EPDM for industrial roofing applications can be explained by the fact that it is completely waterproof and resistant to corrosion. In fact, EPDM was designed to withstand extreme heat, weather, and ozone, and is also quite resistant to steam and polar substances. At Eagle Rivet, we use EPDM for “flat roof” industrial projects, and it is a great choice for any business that needs a new roof or roofing repairs, as it is remarkably affordable given the quality of the product. Additionally, it has three distinctly beneficial properties:
At Eagle Rivet, we are proud to work with the finest EPDM brands available. In particular, we have extensive experience with the top Firestone EPDM Roofing and Carlisle Syntec lines.
Carlisle Syntec has been producing high quality single-ply roofing for more than four decades. Though their extensive product line is all quality, their EPDM roofing supplies are among the finest in the business. We are very pleased with their X-Tenda Coat line of acrylic coatings, which are Energy Star certified and comply with California’s Title 24.
Firestone is a company that is most often associated with tire production. Conveniently, Firestone has taken its knowledge of rubber tire production and applied it to commercial EPDM roofing supplies, creating great products such as the highly reflective AcryliTop EPDM Coating, perfect for white roofs since it reflects up to 68% of sunlight (for comparison, the EPA Energy Star standard requires only 30% reflectance).
We stand by our EPDM brands and are extremely familiar with their installation and maintenance requirements. For more information about how you can get a Firestone or Carlisle Syntec roof for your business, contact us at your convenience.
When it comes to your commercial roofing project or repair, we know that you want the best quality roof, that will be long-lasting and low maintenance at the same time. Eagle Rivet stands behind our Firestone and Carlisle Syntec product lines. If your commercial or industrial roof needs to be replaced or repaired, call us today to find out how an EPDM product can revitalize your roof.
Our EPDM roofing supplies are cost efficient, impervious to cracking from heat, moisture or dryness, and are completely recyclable. All these properties make EPDM a wise choice for commercial roofing in New England, where the weather can be as harsh as it is unpredictable.
If you need a new commercial or industrial roof or are looking for a replacement, contact us to discuss how an EPDM roof can help your business.
