EPDM Roof Restoration and Coatings
Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer (EPDM) roofing is a type of thermoset membrane roof material. It is the most common material used to create rubber roofs, and is derived from oil and natural gases. EPDM roofs are widely used in commercial and residential applications.
EPDM Roof Issues
EPDM roofs are fairly unattractive and over time, EPDM rubber roofing experiences wear-and-tear problems, especially in Colorado, New Mexico and Texas. The synthetic rubber’s dark colors tend to absorb most of the sun’s rays, leading to degradation of the EPDM’s membrane. As the membrane decomposes, it becomes more susceptible to puncturing.
