Made from ethylene, propylene, and a small amount of diene monomer, EPDM has been improved since its introduction, and is resistant to water, UV rays, heat, hail, and extreme fluctuations in temperature. When your trusted commercial roofing company at Montgomery Contractors installs an EPDM roof on your Triad area building, it’s there to stay for years to come.
Environmental benefits of using EPDM gets high rating
A sustainable, environmentally friendly material in construction, EPDM requires little energy to produce, maintain, and is recyclable. Not only that, business owners who really want to stretch their green toes can install rooftop gardens over an EPDM roof! As long as there is care taken in keeping the membrane free from root growth, as well as proper drainage and slope, an EPDM roof can support everything from a vegetable and herb garden to flowers and grass! The only thing hindering your garden’s growth is your imagination.
Longevity and low maintenance with EPDM
EPDM roofs can last up to 50 years or more in the Greensboro and Winston-Salem, NC area. Once the EPDM roof is installed, the commercial roofing system requires no special coating or surface treatment. Business owners need only perform periodic checks for debris or leaves, as well as have their roofers at Montgomery Contractors check the seams and rooftop for maximum performance, and that is all that is required to maintain their EPDM roof!
Springing a leak means easy repair
Because of the nature of EPDM, it is easily repaired and has a potential for restoration not seen in other types of roofing materials. Over the years, your EPDM commercial roofing system will maintain its flexibility as well as it strength. If repairs or replacement of areas of the EPDM are needed, they are easy to accomplish because of EPDM’s unique integrity to its original state. Warranties for EPDM roofs vary, but are typically offered from between five and 20 years. There are premium warranties that offer coverage for up to 30 years.
Painting EPDM roof makes it your own
Not thrilled with having the standard black or white roof associated with EPDM? No worries! Acrylic coating can be used on EPDM commercial roofs after a detergent is used to wash the surface. Latex –based paint products can also be used, but it is recommended that the manufacturer is contacted first to make sure the paint is compatible with the EPDM surface, and to ensure continuation of your warranty coverage. Almost every color in the rainbow is possible on your EPDM commercial roofing system.
