What is EPDM roofing?

EPDM (ethylene propylene diene terpolymer) is an extremely durable synthetic rubber roofing membrane widely used in low-slope buildings all around the world. It is formulated from two primary ingredients, ethylene and propylene, that are derived from oil and natural gas which gives it great strength and flexibility no matter the weather conditions.

What is the advantage of EPDM roofing?

In addition to longevity, EPDM roofs also help to reduce the costs of heating and cooling, are resistant to almost all weather conditions, are flexible enough to fit around pipes and gutters, and are also highly durable (not prone to cracking from extreme moisture or dryness). The breathable material allows heat and vapors to escape from the building envelope making it an ideal choice for those seeking both protective capabilities as well as affordability.

What is the cost of EPDM roofing?

When it comes to roofing materials, EPDM is one of the most cost-effective options you can choose for your home. For a standard installation, the cost of an EPDM roof typically sits between $6,000 and $18,000 depending on some key factors such as the complexity of installation, roof pitch, insulation type, insulation thickness, and accessibility. These prices may exceed this if an old roof needs to be removed before installing the EPDM material.

What does it cost to replace an EPDM roof?

Taking the cost-effective step to install an EPDM roof can be quite a smart move. The average price per square foot falls around $4.50 and $5.50, with a full roof replacement costing between $6,000 and $18,000. Depending on local requirements and codes, however, you may need to factor in an extra buck or two per square foot if any part of the old roof needs removal before installation. While it's wise to consider different options and compare prices from different contractors, installing an EPDM rubber roof can be one of the most reliable and affordable decisions when it comes to protecting your home from the elements.

What are some additional benefits of EPDM roofing?

Installing EPDM roofing is quick and uncomplicated compared to other roofing materials. All that is needed to install an EPDM roof is rolls of membrane, seam tape, and a few specialized tools. It can be installed by rolling it out over your existing roof and then taping the seams.

Not only does this take far less time than installing traditional shingles or metal sheets, but it also saves you both time and money in the long run. Not to mention that EPDM roof restoration and repair costs much less since fewer seams fail than with other types of roofing materials as well.

How are EPDM roofs installed?

EPDM comes in black or white colors with a variety of widths available between 7.5 feet and 50 feet, with 45 mils or 60 mils thickness to suit any project's requirements. It can be installed with three different methods: fully adhered, mechanically attached, or ballasted, and seams are sealed with liquid adhesive or specially formulated tape for ultimate protection. This material has become a go-to choice thanks to its superior features such as longevity, resistance to UV damage, and low maintenance costs.
