If you’ve come to the realization that it’s time to replace the roof on your Parker, Colorado home, you’ve probably realized you have some options.

Going rubber

There are a few benefits of installing a rubber roofing system (also known as an EPDM roof), so for this blog post, we thought we’d go over the most common advantages.

But first, we wanted to break down the acronym. Essentially, EPDM stands for ethylene, propylene diene terpolymer. Why is this type of system great? We’ll tell you:

  • EPDM roofing systems create an extremely durable membrane
  • EPDM roofing systems are a great choice for low-slope structures
  • It’s hail resistant
  • Rubber roofs offer flexibility in freezing temperatures
  • Rubber roofs are highly resistant to fire
  • They’re resistant to extreme heat
  • They’re also highly resistant to wind damage
  • This type of roofing system can provide resistance to ultra violet (UV) radiation

If you still have questions about the pros and cons of rubber roofing systems, or you have questions about how the up-front costs associated with an EPDM system will differ from other types of roofing materials, we can help.

Technical stuff

When you choose this type of roofing system, you’ll be choosing one that’s will provide a fully-adhered membrane between the exterior and interior of your residence.  Ultimately, it’s a roof that’s glued down and will include glued-down seams and flashings.

They also come with an impressive lifespan (the average lifespan for an EPDM system generally runs between 25 and 30 years.) Not only is this longer than the type of lifespan of other types of roofing materials, it’s also cost-effective, which is why rubber roofs are gaining in popularity.
