EPDM, or ethylene propylene diene monomer, is a rubber roofing material commonly used on low-slope commercial buildings. It's highly durable and resistant to the elements, making it an excellent choice for a commercial building in Western New York.
EPDM is made up of two primary components: ethylene and propylene. These are combined with other materials to produce a polymer that can be molded into various shapes. EPDM rubber roofing is typically installed in flat sheets, which are rolled out onto a roof deck before being secured with adhesive or fasteners.
