Rubber Roofing
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Often utilized in commercial and industrial building applications, Rubber Roofing is a very popular choice for low slope or flat roof applications as well as certain residential scenarios. Over 1 Billion square feet of new rubber membrane is installed in the United States annually. Although an experience installation specialist is required to install rubber roofing, the product is attached without the need to penetrate the substrate surface. Although seams can be present, generally speaking rubber is comprised of large seamless sections of rubber which are water impermeable and more tolerant to standing water or ponding than other roofing systems.
 
 
 
Is Rubber Roofing the best option?
 
Rubber Roofing offers several advantages over other roofing materials and it is a preferred product for certain specified applications.
 
 
Visual Appearance

 
Traditional Rubber roofing is a flat non-textured membrane that is black in color
 
Lighter colors such as White, Off-White, or Tan are available
 
Color may be altered by applying acrylic paint
 
Longevity

 
Properly installed Rubber Roofing can last 50 years or more
 
Easy to service and able to be repaired by an experienced installer
 
 
 
 
 
Weather Resistant

 
Tolerant of extreme cold and extreme heat with unmatched thermal shock
 
Brittleness Temperature Rating as low as -49 F.
 
Know wind tolerances up to 130 mph
 
Hail tolerances up to 3” in diameter
 
Energy Efficiency

 
Extremely Energy Efficient

Types of Rubber Roofing
 
 
Single Ply Membrane Roofing

Thermoset Membranes: With this type of membrane, the seams are chemically linked to create one large bonded covering to protect the building structure and contents. EPDM (ethylene propylene diene terpolymer) falls into this category and is currently the most utilized. Membrane thicknesses are typically between 30 and 60 mils.
 
Thermoplastic Membranes: Unlike the chemical cross-linking with Thermosets, Thermoplastic Membranes have seams that are welded together with heat or solvents but are otherwise similar to Thermoset Membranes. PVC plastic materials such as TPO fall into this category.
 
Modified Bitumen Membranes: Often referred to as “torch-down” these types of Membranes use a flame throwing torch to melt asphalt within the membrane so as to join seams together.
 
 
 
Rubber Roofing Shingles

Recycled rubber and plastic are now being used to make Rubber roofing shingles which resemble traditional shingles including Asphalt Shingles, Cedar Shakes, Slate, and Tile. They are much cheaper and weigh less in addition to being created from recycled materials and being a very durable product.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Frequently Asked Questions:
 
 
What is EPDM?

EPDM (ethylene propylene diene terpolymer) is an elastomeric compound that is manufactured from ethylene, propylene, and a small amount of diene monomer. These synthesized products produce a material that resists weathering. It is also highly abrasion resistant, low temperature tolerant, ozone and ultraviolet resistant, and has excellent elongation properties. It is furthermore resistant to oxygenated solvents, acids, and alkalis such as alcohols, ketones, and esters.
 
 
 
Is Rubber roofing expensive?

The materials are typically less than other roofing and labor costs are typically lower due to the speed at which large areas of roofing are able to be installed.
 
 
 
Can Rubber Roofing tolerate standing or ponding water?

Although it is best roofing practice to ensure proper drainage, rubber has an excellent resistance to moisture absorption. Moisture has absolutely no effect on the membrane.
 
 
 
How long can I expect a rubber roof to last?

Rubber roofs can often last 40 years within various climatic conditions. EPDM membranes have been shown to have a potential life expectancy of 50 years.
 
 
 
What applications are suitable for EPDM Roofing?

Due to its versatility EPDM membrane can be used for a number of applications including unusually shaped structures such as domes and geometrically shaped roofs. Although it is used primarily in commercial and industrial flat roof or low slope applications it is also well suited for residential and steep slope situations.
 
 
 
What maintenance is required for a rubber roof?

Generally black rubber roofing will not require any cleaning or maintenance. White or TPO can lose some of its reflecting capabilities if it becomes dirty and roof cleaning products are available if necessary. The roof should also remain free of debris or anything that could penetrate the rubber such as falling tree branches.
