Everything MN Property Owners Need to Know About EPDM Roofing
What is EPDM roofing?
EPDM is a roofing membrane, meaning a sheet of roofing material that is rolled over the roof surface and secured with fasteners. EPDM is unique in that it is made out of a specific rubberized plastic called ethylene propylene diene monomer.
Advantages of an EPDM Roof
- Insulation – Because it’s made of rubber, EPDM roofing is insulating on its own, but it’s also light enough to be installed over roof insulation panels as well for extra protection against heat transfer.
- Energy Efficient – This insulating quality means that EPDM roofing can keep the energy costs in your residential or commercial building low.
- Inexpensive Installation – The installation of flat roofing membranes is cost effective, but EPDM is less expensive than other types such as PVC or TPO roofing.
