What is EPDM roofing?  

Ethylene propylene diene terpolymer (better known as EPDM) roofing has been in commercial use since the 1960s. Its longevity in the industry is a testament to its strength and popularity. EPDM is a synthetic rubber that is more durable than standard rubber.

What are the benefits of EPDM roofing?

  1. EPDM roofing is going to stand up to anything Mother Nature can throw at it, including high summer temperatures and hailstorms. EPDM is also resistant to tears. It is so durable that it can last for decades without a loss in quality.
  2. EPDM roofing material is waterproof. At Roof Replacement Solutions, we ensure a moisture-proof seal so you will never have to deal with leaks.
  3. Not only is EPDM one of the more affordable options on the market, but it will also keep your maintenance costs down year over year because of its reliability. 

What are my options? 

Once you have decided that EPDM roofing is the right solution for you, you’ll simply choose the color and thickness that are right for your property. EPDM comes in white or black. The white shade is best for warm climates, as it reflects light and helps to keep a building cooler (which also lowers energy costs). The black shade is preferable in colder climates, since it helps to retain heat.
