With EPDM roofing you get a single layer roofing solution that doesn’t leak. This material is made of a rubber like substance (the EPDM stands for Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer) that can last many years and is inexpensive to install. It is so easy to put in actually that most business owners can do it themselves or have their in house employees put it in for them. This material comes in black and white versions. The black version is made of a tough material that can be contoured to just about any shape of any roof that needs it. You can purchase it in sheets 50 feet wide by 100 feet long. The white variety is said to be more sound proof, insulating, and easier to maintain than the black versions.
EPDM roofing is used on all types of buildings including mobile homes and even house boats. More people are starting to use this type of roofing because of its ease of installation, cost effectiveness, and long lasting protection. If you do need to replace it, it is a piece of cake, unlike the other types of roofing systems available. Many commercial buildings use EPDM for the same reasons. Some use it in conjunction with other roofing materials as a way to sound proof the home, business, or houseboat. Motor homes and mobile homes also use this material for its ease of use as well.
