Advantages of Firestone EPDM Roofing Products


EPDM roofing is often referred to as “rubber roofing” due to it’s texture, look, and durability. Used as an option for single-ply roofing construction, EPDM roofing is low-maintenance, durable, and has incredible tolerance to heat, snow, and other inclement weather conditions.

While EPDM isn’t rubber, specifically, it’s a synthetic material that acts like rubber as far as resisting punctures and tearing. However, its ability to keep from drying out, over saturating and cracking due to extreme heat far surpasses the performance of rubber.

EPDM Roofing Solutions Offered by Firestone

Firestone produces a number of EPDM roofing solutions for your low-slope roofing needs. Whether you’re roofing or re-roofing a small office building or a large hospital or school, EPDM roofing from a Connecticut or Boston flat roofing contractor can fit your needs.

Firestone’s RubberGard EPDM roofing membranes are amongst their most popular. Having been produced for the last 30 years for commercial construction use, RubberGard EPDM can be installed in a number of ways. Eagle Rivet Roof Service Corporation installs these roofing systems either by fully adhered installation, or through means of mechanically attaching the EPDM. The advantage of this option is its proven performance and durability.

Firestone’s 90-mil EcoWhite Platinum EPDM

Another fine Firestone EPDM product is the 90-mil EcoWhite Platinum EPDM. Encompassing the proven performance of traditional Firestone EPDM, the white surface of the EcoWhite Platinum reflects heat and light, as well as meets LEED® Certification requirements and exceeds ASTM standards. According to Firestone directly, “A 90-mil thick, bi-laminate membrane, EcoWhite Platinum EPDM sets the industry standard for sustainable, white, reflective roofing solutions, and offers a premium choice designed to bring more value to any investment.”

Firestone also offers an array of other EPDM products. The most versatile of the bunch is their Pre-Taped EPDM membranes that provide faster and more efficient installation, as well as more aesthetic appeal.

Trust the Name and the Warranty

Firestone EPDM Roofing Membranes have tremendous advantage over off-brand manufactured EPDM. Firestone Building Products is a trusted name in rubber, tires, synthetic rubber, and EPDM products for over 30 years, and all products come with a company-backed warranty.

If you are looking for a company with a great history and industry reputation that produces high-quality EPDM roofing, and you have a strong affinity for the well-being of the environment, think about the roofing solutions offered by Firestone.
