ARE EPDM ROOFS ANY GOOD?

Since the 1960s, EPDM rubber roofing has been used for roofs across the world. EPDM roofing involves using a rubber membrane that is applied to a flat surface. The elastomer is a rubbery material and has all the physical properties for long-term performance at a low maintenance cost.

An EPDM rubber roof is an exceptionally durable roof made from a synthetic rubber roofing membrane. An EPDM roof is usually fully adhered onto a flat surface and has a proven life expectancy of 50 years.
