One type of roofing you may not have heard about is EPDM or rubber roofing. EPDM stands for Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer and is a high quality, commercial-grade rubber membrane resistant to weathering, tears, impacts, punctures and light foot traffic. It's one of the many options available to you at LI Roof Plus, your Long Island rubber roof contractors.
EPDM is a highly durable synthetic rubber roofing membrane that is widely used in low-slope buildings in the United States and throughout the world. Its two main components, ethylene and propylene, are derived from oil and natural gas. EPDM is available in both black and white, and is sold in a wide variety of widths, ranging from 7 1/2 feet to 50 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 specially formulated tape or liquid adhesive.
EPDM can be a wise, economical solution for the budget conscious homeowner. If you choose black, much like shingles, EPDM is great at retaining heat in the dark color. If your heating bill is greater than your cooling bill, EPDM could be the perfect option for you.
