EPDM Roofing

Although natural rubber had been used in the past as a roofing solution, it tended to break down when exposed to UV rays and proved to be less durable. Natural rubber was unable to resolve the demands of the roofing industry in terms of installation and maintenance.

In response, ethylene propylene diene terpolymer (EPDM) rubber roofing membrane was developed. It is an advanced rubber membrane and has been widely used in low slope commercial roofing for over 40 years.

South Side Roofing is pleased to offer EPDM roofing as an option to customers looking for a solution for low slope commercial buildings!

Benefits of EPDM in Commercial Roofing

  • EPDM can be top coated with a reflective elastomeric material to prevent the seams from shrinking in extremely high temperature periods. This also helps keep the material cooler and retards heat-related deterioration.
  • A properly-seamed and installed EPDM roof ticks off all the performance boxes and can last many decades with a proper maintenance schedule.
  • Sold in both black & white, optional thicknesses, and a variety of installation methods (i.e. fully adhered, mechanically-fastened).
  • Experienced roofing contractors like South Side Roofing are actually able to restore damaged or older EPDM roof systems.
  • Fire resistant and recyclable.
  • Extremely durable and engineered to last.
  • Excellent UV resistance.
  • Can expand up to 300% while retaining structural memory.
  • Can lower heat costs on colder climates.
  • Low long-term maintenance costs when a preventative maintenance program is in place.
  • Wide variety of widths and two thicknesses to avoid wasted material.
