“Ethylene propylene diene terpolymer” – abbreviated in the roofing industry as “EPDM” – is the most common type of rubber-membrane roofing… and it’s an excellent roofing choice for many applications:
EPDM rubber roofing has a number of advantages, including the variety of widths available… up to fifty feet. It also comes in different thicknesses (45, 60, 90, and 120 mils), and can be installed using a number of different methods, from full adherence, to mechanical attachment, to ballasting.
Seams are sealed with professional-grade liquid adhesives or specially-designed heavy-duty tape.
This highly-popular roof type is not without its challenges. Over time, the material can shrink, and the seams dry out, in Colorado’s harsh sunlight.
