Flat Roof EPDM

EPDM is a solution mostly for “no-slope” or “low-slope” roofs (IE: flat). Combining ethylene and propylene, EPDM creates a very durable synthetic rubber roofing solution. EPDM is rolled on in large sheets and is either attached, ballasted or adhered with liquid adhesives or tape.

The Pros of EPDM:

While not the most attractive option for a roof, EPDM can be applied directly over plywood, making this option a quick and cost-effective solution to your roofing needs. EPDM is predominantly used in commercial roofing and provides a strong watertight seal for flat roofs that prevents against harsh weather. For almost any flat roof project, EPDM provides good energy efficiency and overall durability.

The Cons of EPDM:

Most EPDM roofs last upwards of 20 years, which is on the low side compared to other more expensive options. While EPDM provides durability and weather resistance, it pales in comparison to the longevity of composite, synthetic, metal and slate options.
