Rubber Roofing (EPDM)
EPDM is an extremely durable synthetic rubber roofing membrane (ethylene propylene diene terpolymer) widely used in low-slope commercial buildings and residential homes in the United States. Its two primary ingredients, ethylene and propylene, are derived from oil and natural gas. EPDM is available in both black and white, and is sold a broad variety of widths, ranging from 7.5 feet to fifty feet, and in two thicknesses, 45 and 60 mils. EPDM can be installed either fully adhered, mechanically attached or ballasted, with the seams of the roofing system sealed with liquid adhesives or specially formulated tape.
Elite Exteriors, LLC installs fully adhered systems most commonly on low-sloped residential projects. We use panels measuring up to 20 feet by 50 feet. The membrane is bonded to the insulation or fiberboard, which has been physically attached, utilizing mechanical fasteners, stress plates and/or adhesives. Either non-reinforced or scrim reinforced membrane can be used, with the non-reinforced membrane making up most adhered installations. Fully adhered systems are lightweight and ideal for a wide range of building sizes and geometric configurations, including high-slope applications. Because of recent technological advances in application, the fully adhered system is becoming the system of choice for roof replacement applications in many areas of the country.
Elite Exteriors, LLC is able to improve or re-pitch your flat roof to give it a better slope for water to roll off. Elite Exteriors, LLC is also able to improve the insulation value of that flat roof.
