EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer)
EPDM roofing systems have been in use for about 50 years and, throughout that time, they have been successfully employed as a waterproof roof covering. For those ecologically conscious folks among us, you should note that EPDM does not in any way pollute the runoff rainwater. This is clearly a benefit to the property owner who wishes to use the water runoff for gardening, personal sanitation, or hygiene purposes. EPDM offers the user ease of installation, increased durability, and versatility of design.
Other Roofing Systems
Built-Up Roofing (BUR)
Originally referred to as “composition roofing”.
In this type of roofing system, a waterproof base sheet is first applied to the cleaned and prepped roof deck.
Tapered Insulation Systems
Tapered insulation systems are designed to provide the slope that is lacking on flat roofs so that proper drainage can then occur as desired, thereby extending the life of the roofing system as a whole.
PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride)
PVC roofing systems have been in use for about 40 years, and they currently account for about 10% of the roof coverings in America. They are extremely durable, highly resistant to punctures, dirt, and debris.
