EPDM stands for “ethylene propylene diene terpolymer”, which is a rubberized roof coating that protects the underlying structure from water damage. This roofing material actually repels water instead of absorbing it, so (with proper maintenance) there is no danger of moisture building up and soaking through your roof. We proudly offer commercial EPDM roofing in Longwood and Orlando, FL, and neighboring cities. For a quote on our rubber roofing services, give our team a call at (407) 298-0100.
Rubberized roofing membranes like EPDM can be used in conjunction with other roofing materials to create a truly water-resistant barrier that will protect your business from rain damage. Central Florida knows all too well about torrential rain and the damage it can cause. EPDM offers incredible protection against moisture and roof leaks.
Why Choose Waterproof EPDM Roofing?
Your roof is made of many layers, one on top of the other. The topmost layer is routinely assaulted by high winds and heavy rain. During hurricanes, the roof is also vulnerable to flying debris and downed trees and power lines. When your top layer of roofing is made of EPDM, it protects the roof and everything below it from rain and impact damage. The tough membrane serves as a barrier that repels water so that it cannot seep into the insulation and wooden supports beneath the roof. EPDM roofing has also proven to be resistant to hail damage, fire, and extreme cold.
The sun’s UV rays are harmful to roofing materials, just as they are to human skin. EPDM has been tested and found to be UV-ray resistant. It does not bleach out and deteriorate from sun exposure like other types of roofing. In freezing conditions, it remains semi-flexible to keep from cracking as the cold causes structures to expand and contract.
Right now, there are over 1 billion square feet of EPDM on the tops of buildings all over the world. After 40 years of testing, EPDM roofing is considered to be a superior product when it comes to resilience in harsh conditions. A properly-installed EPDM roof will likely last as long as your building does.
