When it’s time to repair your old commercial roof or replace it with a new one, choosing a single ply roofing material is a great choice. Ethylene propylene diene terpolymer or EPDM is a form of rubber roofing that can last for up to 50-years. This makes it perfectly suited for commercial roofing purposes in El Paso.
When properly installed and frequently maintained, you can make your investment in EPDM roofing stretch even further. With decades of experience, detailed knowledge of roofing specifications and materials, as well as a long-standing commitment to offering affordable and high-quality roofing services, Roof Solutions & Construction is El Paso’s first choice for commercial roofing contractors.
Suitable for a wide variety of commercial buildings and low slope roofs, EPDM has a host of advantages to offer that other forms of roofing cannot.
- Rapid installation is facilitated by the size of EPDM roofing sections. Mats can be as short as 7.5 feet long, or as long as 50 fifty feet. Available in two different widths, 45 and 60 millimeters, you can tailor your EPDM roof to your building needs.
- The same characteristics that make installing an EPDM roof an expedited process also make it extremely resilient to anything that El Paso has to throw at it. With fewer seams, there are fewer opportunities for moisture to seep underneath the roofing material. It also prevents the sun from deforming the roof.
- The method of adhering the EPDM material to the roof also meets many insurance requirements. Unlike other commercial roofing options, EPDM is glued into place, rather than heat welded. This makes EPDM the obvious choice if your insurance provider does not allow heat welding due to fire risk.
- Finally, EPDM roofing is very easy to maintain. With regular repairs, you can enjoy a durable roof for 30 to 50-years.
While EPDM roofing is prized for its durability, that does not mean it’s immune from needing repairs. Often, repair issues start with how the roof was installed. If improperly installed, you can experience issues soon after putting the roofing material down. These issues can be avoided by choosing an experienced roofing contractor in El Paso to install your EPDM roofing.
Other issues that may cause issues is poor drainage, which allows water to buildup on the roof, degrading the roofing sections. Wind can also wear on your roof, as it can weaken the edges, causing the roofing sections to split apart. If you see any obvious signs of wear and tear on your EPDM roofing, it’s important to have it inspected and repaired immediately. When left unchecked, these minor wear points can quickly become a major repair project, which only leads to a larger repair bill.
