EPDM Roofing Systems
Choosing the perfect roof for your commercial building can be very tiring. All these types and subtypes can make people nauseous, and it’s all understandable. You only want what’s best for your roof and you’re not settling for anything else. There are a lot of types of commercial roofing systems with the most popular being: synthetic rubber, which utilizes TPO and PVC as leading materials; thermoplastic, EPDM; metal roofing and so on.
EPDM is an acronym standing for ethylene propylene diene monomer. It’s one of the leading forces when it comes to materials and techniques used in commercial roofing systems. They are actually suitable for many purposes, ranging from residential up to commercial roofing systems. EPDM is mainly used to create large thin sheets which are usually placed upon a flat roof, or sometimes, a roof with a lower slope. After being placed into position, they are bound together by using either a special kind of type or a specific liquid adhesive. Although it’s found to be extremely durable, it’s continuously being upgraded to provide the best possible service.
EPDM is very popular among roofers and commercial building owners. There are many reasons behind that. EPDM roofing systems are both easy to install and easy to maintain. Not only that, its potential is being recognized daily with more and more people deciding to upgrade to EPDM roofing. Since it’s not that complex to install, it requires less financial support. Moreover, it also reduced the risk of injury, commonly associated with complex commercial roofing systems.
EPDM roofing systems are extremely versatile and can be situated on top of any kind of commercial building available. And because of its upgraded formula, its features keep expanding more and more every day. Although they were originally meant to be placed on top of flat surfaces, new technologies have adapted the EPDM, making it suitable for installment on top of oddly shaped buildings.
There are many ways in which EPDM roofing systems can benefit your commercial building. Since it can withstand almost catastrophic weather conditions, it is mostly being used in areas with unstable climates. Furthermore, they provide an additional sense of security and durability because of the membrane fusion technique. One of the main reasons behind its durability is the need for an extremely durable flat roofing system. Since the debris, water and snow can’t slide down on the wings of gravity, the roof has to be able to withstand such amount of pressure.
Extreme temperatures are not a problem for EPDM roofings since the structure and physical properties of the material resist both low and high temperatures. Not only do they resist them, EPDM roofing systems can successfully tolerate sharp changes in temperature. On top of all of that, they are considered to be very resistant to UV rays.
Before rushing on to install EPDM roofing systems, it is advised to consult with an expert in the field.
