EPDM is one of the most sought after roofing materials for flat commercial roofs because of its reputation for durability. It is composed of a synthetic rubber and constructed using natural gas and the oil derivatives ethylene and propylene. It’s a single-ply membrane made from durable synthetic rubber and comes in a range of sizes to fit any building’s unique specifications. It can be fully adhered, mechanically attached or ballasted. One of the best things about and EPDM roof is that it requires a very-low maintenance service schedule and are known to last for up to thirty years. Rubber roofing materials such as EPDM are prized for their ability to tolerate UV rays, temperature variations and stand up to water and leakage. However, that being said, just as with any roofing material, repairs are an inevitability.
Our company has years of success to its name, maintaining EPDM flat roofs for commercial buildings and structures. We professionally and expertly repair holes and leaks in EPDM roofs that have occurred as a result of water and uv damage, structural stress, average wear and tear and accidents. Repairs typically involve cutting and removing the damaged portion of the roof, cleaning off all loose fragments of debris and peeling back a section of the original roof to fit the brand new, fully cured EPDM material over the existing roof. The repair EPDM material will be installed wrinkle free and and fully flush.
