Roofing With The Best Technology For Good Performance

By Tom Preston on December 20, 2010

Rubber roofs are gaining popularity for their durability and ease of repair. Rubber roofing is expensive, but when compared to wood shingles and taking into consideration the longer life span, it balances out.

There are many benefits to rubber roofing systems. The biggest benefit is that the system completely waterproofs our home. This is especially important for the flat roofs that tend to leak rather easily. It is also able to withstand extreme temperatures and is resistant to fire. Rubber roofs are energy efficient because they keep our home warm in winter and cooler in the summer. Before the installation begins, the substrate must be swept off and free of any debris or damage.

The EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer) single-ply rubber roofing membrane has been an appealing choice of the low-slope commercial roofing industry. EPDM rubber share a chemical structure that gives them an extra ordinary resistance to Heat, Cold, Sunlight and air pollution, ideal characteristics for a roofing membrane. It is ideal for roofs with poor drainage or where the water proofing is to be covered by gravel, soil, decks, or pavers. In addition, since it is fully UV stable, it can be used for fully exposed applications.

The main features of rubber roofing are; Long durability, easy way to fix, highly stretchable and flexible, resistance to ozone, resistance to sunlight and uv-radiation, environmental friendly and maintenance free. Durability, design versatility and installation ease are among the many reasons ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM) is the most popular material for both new and reroof low-slope roofing applications.

A flat roof is a type of covering of a building. In contrast to the sloped form of a roof, a flat roof is horizontal or nearly horizontal. Materials that cover flat roofs should allow the water to run off freely from a very slight inclination. Flat roofs are a popular style for many buildings, whether business or residential. They can indicate an architectural style anywhere. Integrating a flat roof as a green roof terrace, publicly-accessible area or even as a profitable solar panel roof optimizes the profits and benefits derived from the building. A flat roof can be strengthened either by reducing the span of beams that supports it, or by adding beams to reinforce the structure.
