EPDM Roof Replacement in Fort Worth
Generally simply called synthetic rubber, EPDM is manufactured from Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer Polymer. EPDM membrane roofing is versatile, in that it offers various long-term options that feature outstanding wind uplift resistance as well as resistance to damage from heat, cold and UV rays. If cost savings are paramount, EPDM roof repair and replacement in Fort Worth could be your solution.
Expert Roof Installation
While EPDM carries some significant advantages, there are some drawbacks too. For example, synthetic rubber membranes shrink as they age. In addition, EPDM commercial roofs are sealed at the seams by liquid adhesive or tape, both common causes of roof leaks.
Generally black in color, EPDM roofs offer little in the way of solar reflective properties and therefore are not classified as “green” roofing options. Warranties for EPDM roofs vary from 10 to 30 years, depending on the membrane thickness, layers of insulation, type of deck and method of installation. This makes them one of the most durable commercial roofing options.
