EPDM, which stands for ethylene propylene diene monomer, is a single-ply synthetic rubber membrane. Its two main ingredients, ethylene and propylene, are sourced from natural gas and oil. To make it usable for roofing, the EPDM rubber is vulcanised (or dried out) and turned into sheets of roofing membrane.
EPDM has firmly established itself as one of the most popular roofing options on the market. EPDM rubber is incredibly durable, cost-effective and requires little maintenance. It’s also highly versatile, being used for everything from garages and houses to sheds and carports, as well as tree houses, extensions and bay window roofs.
Whether your project is small or large, residential or commercial, for your house or your garage (or both!), EPDM rubber is the ideal flat roofing solution for you.
We aren’t the only people who vouch for EPDM rubber, either. As if it wasn’t versatile enough, EPDM rubber is also widely used in the automotive, construction and manufacturing industries for seals, belts, elastic hangers and much more.
EPDM rubber is one of the leading options when it comes to flat roofing — and for good reason. Many good reasons, in fact!
EPDM is incredibly hard-wearing and damage-resistant compared to many other roofing materials on the market. The rubber can withstand whatever weather it faces throughout the year, no matter if it’s rain, hail, wind, snow, sleet or sun. EPDM rubber won’t crack during a harsh winter and won’t blister during a hot summer. In fact, the rubber can withstand temperatures as high as 150°C and as low as -40°C
Thanks to its impressive durability, EPDM rubber has a long life span. Even with only minimal maintenance and attention, an EPDM roof can last 30 years or longer. At Alvadac, we offer a 20-year guarantee on all of our EPDM rubber.
An EPDM roof provides excellent value for money. Because the rubber is highly durable and will last a long time, the price you pay for installation will be well worth it in the long run. Plus, EPDM is great at regulating temperature. The thick rubber keeps the heat in during the colder months and keeps the heat out during the warmer ones, reducing the need for heating or air conditioning and subsequently lowering your energy bill.
An EPDM roof requires little care and attention. However, inspecting it and cleaning it a few times a year won’t hurt. If it does require any minor repairs, these are fast, easy and inexpensive.
EPDM rubber is incredibly pliable and flexible, making the process of installing it onto your roof very easy and efficient. The rubber sheet can be cut and measured to fit a surface, no matter how awkwardly shaped your roof may be. Plus, fitting an EPDM roof doesn’t require any heat (such as a gas torch and bitumen boiler). Instead, the membranes are applied cold and are fitted using an adhesive solution.
Whenever possible, a sheet of EPDM is installed whole, covering the entire roof area. This eliminates the need for any seams and further enhances the waterproof properties of the roofing material. Even with a seam, EPDM is virtually waterproof.
EPDM rubber is almost impossible to ignite and can actually impede the progress of a fire, helping to protect both your property and your possessions.
For homeowners who are conscious of their carbon footprint, EPDM is the eco-friendly choice. Not only does it take very little energy to construct the rubber material, but it’s 100% recyclable. Plus, the membrane does not pollute any run-off rainwater, unlike some other roofing materials.
