Commercial Roofing Pros
While both have roofs and need protective coverage, residential and commercial buildings have different problems. Commercial buildings have a larger space to cover and are usually taller, which means more sun and weather exposure.
Commercial roofing also needs longevity, because no business wants to deal with replacements every few years. The best news is that EPDM addresses all of those problems and more, which makes it perfect for your commercial roof.
EPDM Commercial Roofing in Monroe, NY
There are other single-ply membranes available, but EPDM has been the favorite for decades for a reason. One of those reasons is how resistant the rubber material is to numerous weather effects, from rain and hail to fire and heat.
Since there are a lot of areas where commercial buildings have to meet a fire code by using fire-retardant materials, EPDM solves the problem for you. Just keep in mind when designing your structure that EPDM is used on buildings with a low slope or flat roof.
One more key point in climates is that EPDM does a good job of insulating your building, saving on energy usage. It even comes in black or white, which retains or reflects heat respectively for whatever region your structure is built.
A major reason that roofing materials need to be repaired and replaced as often as they do is a lack of durability, but 50 years of constant improvements and technological advancements being implemented has led to the strongest EPDM yet.
Not only does the standard EPDM withstand all sorts of punishment, foot traffic, and weathering, but there’s a thicker option for roofs that might encounter more tearing or puncturing potential. Less punctures translates to leak prevention, which is the biggest cause of structural damage.
EPDM will protect your roof’s exterior while also preserving the interior foundation from moisture build-up that causes mold and other quality issues.
Commercial Roofing in Monroe, NY - EPDM is Low Cost
Out of all the commercial roofing on the market, EPDM stays one of the most affordable. Averaging less than a dollar per square foot, you’ll also save on repairs and maintenance because of its durability, easy installation, and maximum 50-year lifespan.
It’s important to note that the average life of EPDM is closer to 30 years, but that’s still a long time and you’ll still pay less for replacing the cheap material than you would for materials with a slightly-longer span.
Due to the lightweight material and adhesive seams, EPDM is one of the easiest materials to install in the roofing world. Contractors love working with it because it takes less time and work, which means your wallet will reflect that.
The average cost of a roof protected with EPDM rubber is about $500. There are always possible variables, but that’s a fraction of what most materials would cost even before special tools needed for those.
Between the climate-resistances and option for a thicker layer of EPDM, the fact that it’s so affordable can be hard to believe. However, the competitive drive and history of Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer has demanded improvements in quality and marketing.
If all of the reasons above aren’t enough to convince you that EPDM is the right choice for your commercial roof, consider the fact that EPDM’s adhesive technology is based on a Nobel Prize involving polymerisation.
Combine that with the protective capabilities for your roof as well as the interior of your structure and you might start to see why EPDM stormed onto the commercial roofing scene in the early 1960’s and stuck around for over half a century, staying at the top the whole time.
