What is EPDM Roofing for Commercial Buildings?

EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Terpolymer) roofing is a popular choice for commercial buildings due to its durability, flexibility, and excellent waterproofing properties. At Tesson Roofing, we recommend EPDM along with TPO and Modified Bitumen as superior solutions for commercial roofs with low slopes or flat designs. Here’s why EPDM roofing stands out and how it can benefit your commercial property.

Understanding EPDM Roofing

1. Material Composition

EPDM roofing membranes are made of a synthetic rubber compound derived from ethylene, propylene, and diene monomers. This combination gives EPDM its outstanding durability and resistance to ozone, weathering, and abrasion.

2. Durability and Longevity

EPDM roofs are renowned for their longevity, often lasting 30 years or more with proper maintenance. They can withstand extreme temperatures, hail, and UV exposure without significant degradation.

3. Flexibility and Ease of Installation

EPDM membranes are lightweight and flexible, making them easier to install over large roof areas. They can be mechanically attached, fully adhered, or ballasted, depending on the specific requirements of the building.

Why EPDM, TPO, and Modified Bitumen are Superior Solutions

1. TPO (Thermoplastic Polyolefin)

TPO roofing membranes offer excellent heat-reflective properties, energy efficiency, and resistance to UV radiation and chemical exposure. They are highly durable and cost-effective for commercial roofs.

2. Modified Bitumen

Modified bitumen roofing combines asphalt with modifiers like APP (Atactic Polypropylene) or SBS (Styrene-Butadiene-Styrene) to enhance flexibility, durability, and UV resistance. It’s ideal for low slope roofs and provides exceptional waterproofing.

3. Benefits Over Traditional Shingles

Unlike traditional shingles, EPDM, TPO, and Modified Bitumen are designed specifically for flat or low slope roofs. They offer superior waterproofing capabilities, longevity, and resistance to weather extremes, making them ideal for commercial applications.
