The Advantages of EPDM Roofing Systems
EPDM roofing systems form a membrane that can withstand harsh weather and environmental conditions. EPDM does not falter easily under hail, wind, rain and other weather events like more traditional roofing systems. Due to its resiliency, EPDM systems can easily last 30 years or even longer when it is applied and installed correctly; along with regular maintenance. Additional benefits of EPDM include its cost efficiency and affordability.
One of the best features of EPDM roofing systems is its energy efficiency. In cold weather climates, black EPDM is usually used so that it’s able to convert the sun’s UV rays into heat, which is beneficial in the Northern U.S. and Canada. With white EPDM, instead of using carbon black, titanium dioxide is added so that it repels the sun’s UV rays, resulting in preventing the heat from deteriorating the polymers in the roofing system. White EPDM is more commonly used in the south where the warm season is longer and hotter temperatures are reached.
