Quality EPDM

What is EPDM?

EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer) is a synthetic rubber roofing membrane known for its durability and versatility. It’s a top choice for both new construction and re-roofing projects. The EPDM roofing system is designed to withstand extreme weather conditions, making it perfect for the diverse climate of Connecticut.

Benefits of EPDM

Cost-Effective:
EPDM roofing systems are generally more affordable compared to other single-ply roofing materials. This cost-effectiveness extends not just to the initial installation but also to long-term maintenance and lifecycle costs.

Durability:
With a service life of generally 15-20 years, EPDM roofs are a reliable choice, offering resilience and long-term performance.

Lightweight Design:
EPDM roofing material weighs less than many other single-ply systems, placing less stress on your building’s structure. sustainable building practices.

Fast and Simple Installation:
The EPDM roofing membranes come in large rolls (10×100 feet), allowing for quicker and simpler installation. This larger size means fewer seams and less labor compared to other materials like modified bitumen, which come in smaller rolls (3×39 feet).

Environmentally Friendly:
At the end of its service life, the EPDM membrane can be recycled, reducing the environmental impact. This feature aligns with modern sustainable building practices.

EPDM Roofing System Composition

  1. EPDM Membrane: This is the top layer of the roofing system, providing waterproofing and UV protection.
  2. Polyisocyanurate Insulation: Positioned beneath the EPDM membrane, this layer offers excellent thermal insulation, improving the energy efficiency of your building.
  3. Corrugated Steel Decking: The foundational layer of the roofing system, offering stability and support for the layers above.

Application Method

At Seal-Tite, our approach with EPDM (ethylene propylene diene terpolymer) roofing involves a fully adhered, glue-down system. This method is particularly effective for EPDM installations, providing a secure and long-lasting bond. By using high-grade adhesives, the EPDM membrane is firmly attached to the roof substrate. This technique not only ensures a watertight seal but also enhances the roof’s durability against environmental factors like wind and thermal fluctuations. The glue-down system is known for its reliability and is a preferred choice for EPDM roofing, ensuring a robust and effective roofing solution.
