EPDM stands for “ethylene propylene diene monomer” and is an excellent choice for all types of Denver residential and commercial buildings with flat roofs. It’s also commonly referred to as a rubber roofing membrane and is widely known for it’s durability and the black color of the material.
Choosing an EPDM roofing system for your property is agreat idea for Colorado property owners as the material is very effective at protecting from the high winds and heavy hail we commonly experience in the Mile High City.
The installation process is typically a pretty easy process compared to other roofing options, meaning a fast install and some savings on labor costs. The material of the membrane is cheap to manufacture as well and comes in many different widths and thicknesses to fit any type of roof to perfection.
If you need a great roofing option that will help keep your building insulated in the winter, EPDM is a great option. It’s cheap to install and can last for decades when you have our certified technicians at Overhead Roofing Of Denver handle the job.
EPDM is typically manufactured into sheets of 3-4 foot wide rolls for easy shipping and easy roll on installation. Our project managers will help you decide the best setup to install from the width of the rolls, to thickness needed for your specific buildings needs. There are many factors that will need to be considered before choosing what you need, so be sure to let us know your exact performance requirements to ensure we get you the best roofing system possible for your needs.
Once the job begins, we fully remove all of the old roofing system down to the decking and lean the entire surface area to prep the roof for the new system. Once clean, we install the insulation and fasten it to the roof deck securely. The amount and type of insulation that goes on your roof can play a big role in effectively insulating your building, from keeping hot out in the summer to keeping the warmth in during the winter so choose wisely when deciding on your insulation.
Once the insulation is secured by fasteners, it’s time to spread adhesive over the top of the insulation. The EPDM membrane is then rolled onto the adhesive in long strips across the entire roof and pressed down for a smooth sit. From there the seams are then heat welded to ensure a perfect air and watertight seal for excellent durability and protection.
To top all of this off, you can have an optional reflective coating applied to the EPDM roofing system. These are usually white in color and have reflective properties within the coating that will help keep your roof from holding too much heat during the summer months. However, the black EPDM will help keep the property warmer in the winter, so it is wise to consult with our teams before deciding to go with the reflective coating or not.
