In the event that you have a say in the construction of your commercial property, it’s important to consider your options. There have been tremendous technological advancements in the construction industry from just 20 years ago, and knowing your options saves you a lot of money and hassle in the long run.
Considering the roof of your commercial property is truly one of the most important aspects. Whether you’re replacing an existing roof or building from scratch, an EPDM roof can be a great option!
An EPDM roof is often referred to as a “rubber roof.” The outer lay comes in sheets ranging from 10 feet to 50 feet wide, and up to 200 feet long, making this an ideal option for larger commercial buildings. Many say that the finished product looks like tire inner tubes or even pond liner.
EPDM roofing systems are manufactured in both black and white in the event of an aesthetic preference, and are incredibly durable. The white finish is great at reflecting heat and light, providing decreased electric bills and a cooler building interior.
The EPDM roofing system is permanently attached to the building structure using either mechanical methods or adhesives. These roofing systems may be coated with an elastomeric coating to preserve the life of the roof and may be adhered to the roof insulation system. These options are not typical and should be discussed with your roofing contractor to see what options make the most sense for your property.
EPDM roofing membranes require a much cleaner, simpler installation method than other flat roofing options, as well. While the roof is adhered to the building’s insulation, it’s held in place by stone ballasts allowing for a simpler, sturdy installation.
Clearly, even though the changes seem slow when they’re happening, roofing has come a long way over past decades. EPDM roofing provides an effective alternative unlike any other in the industry.
If you’re seeking a long-term roofing membrane that not only withstands inclement weather, but also resists tears, cracking or holes, EPDM roofing membranes are your best choice. Straying from typical petroleum-based roofing, EPDM membranes are 21st century approved roofing choices with a plethora of benefits.
They’re lightweight, they’re adaptable to building settlement or movement, and they can be used to re-cover existing building roofing membranes. Consider EPDM roofing to be one of your best choices for commercial roofing, both financially and for the long-term benefits.
