EPDM Roofing Membrane: What Is It?
Ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM) is a roofing membrane used for flat roofs. Although homeowners might not select it for its visual appeal, it is robust and shields your house from the weather. It is best for buildings with low slopes, both commercial and residential.
Flat roofs of this kind usually last for two-to-three decades. They are incredibly resistant to cold, heat, hail, thermal shock, wind, UV rays, and other things while being light and flexible.
In contrast to white membrane roof systems, the black membrane EPDM absorbs heat. This characteristic is why it is not advisable to use it to cover your bedroom or living room in a hot climate.
When making your final choice, only consider the heat absorption that comes with a black EPDM membrane roof system.
