As a roofing expert, one of the roofing solutions Rhino Roofing has available for your business is EPDM roofing.
What is EPDM Roofing?
One of the most popular low slope commercial roof installation solutions is EPDM roofing. EPDM stands for ethylene propylene diene terpolymer and is a durable rubber roofing membrane that has been used for decades. Not only is it used for low slope roofing, but has also been used for covers for car ports and even patios.
EPDM roofing is popular for a variety of reasons. First, it is impervious to so many outdoor elements that can pierce it, such as hail or debris. It can also handle cold environments with ease, even with temperatures in the negative 40s, which is more than ideal for the area’s varying temperatures. This helps to keep the surface from freezing. But it is also resistant to the ozone and heat as well.
EPDM roofing is heat and fire resistant. Home and business owners trust EPDM roofing to help stop or suppress the spread of fire, and the surface is actually even hard to ignite. This makes it also a go-to solution to keeping out the sun’s harsh UV rays from making their way in a structure. For other poor weather conditions, EPDM has a high resistance to high winds–keeping the structure safe in inclement weather. This flexibility in temperatures also makes EPDM roofing a great solution for a settling environment.
For an economically friendly roof solution, EPDM is also looked to as a popular choice. It uses little energy to create and is created from recyclable materials.
The surface of EPDM is smooth and is usually available in black, however, you can talk review other solutions that work best for your roof. EPDM roofing can also be painted over as well, which is great for custom solutions. You can talk to Rhino Roofing about options that would be ideal for your structure. When installing, EPDM roofing is installed in sheets. The larger the sheets, the quicker the installation. Overall, EPDM roofing has been praised for its durability and the small amount of maintenance it needs.
On average, with proper care, EPDM roofing membranes can last up to 50 years. With this type of return on investment, it is such a cost-effective solution that many have found to be a great return on investment, both in materials and in overall construction. As you work to decide which type of roofing is best for you, Rhino Roofing will help you every step of the way to determine your best pricing and durability to help you get the most out of your dollars.
