The Benefits of EPDM Rubber Roofing

There are a number of benefits to considering and utilizing EPDM roofing membranes, also commonly referred to as “rubber roofing.” This type of roofing has a number of environmental benefits, as well as benefits for your commercial or flat-roof property. Read on to learn about the financial and physical benefits of EPDM roofing.


  1. EPDM is Recyclable
    EPDM roofing membranes are incredibly environmentally friendly. Developed as an option to stray away from traditional petroleum-based roofing, EPDM roofing commonly utilizes recycled products, and can, itself, be recycled at the end of its usable life as a roofing material. EPDM roofing systems are manufactured in traditional black, or white, which naturally reflects sunlight and heat allowing for decreased electrical costs. Not only does this help the environment, but it helps your pocket book, too!
  2. EPDM Roofing is Highly Efficient
    EPDM roofing is one of the most efficient roofing products on the market today. Most manufacturers guarantee the durability of EPDM roofing up to 20 years – that can be doubled with regular maintenance and sealing. Once it’s laid, it can help decrease the costs of heating and cooling and resists almost all weather conditions.
  3. EPDM Roofing is Flexible, but Also Durable
    Unlike traditional rubber, the Ethylene propylene diene terpolymer (EPDM) is incredibly resilient. While it’s flexible enough to fit around pipes, skylights and gutters, it won’t crack from extreme moisture and dryness. In addition, EPDM roof types have breathability without being permeable. The material allows heat and vapors to escape from the building envelope without allowing moisture, heat or other elements inside.

This single-ply roofing membrane is durable and lightweight – especially beneficial when building weight is an issue. Saving money on electricity and replacement costs for the long-term, EPDM roofing is a superior option in comparison to petroleum based roofing products and other single ply roofing options. As far as roofing materials go, it’s one of those that ranks near the top. If you’re considering the installation of new roofing in the near future, make sure you consider EPDM.
