EPDM Roofing in Denver, Fort Collins, Cheyenne and Surrounding Areas
EPDM Rubber Roof Systems
Peterich Custom Construction and Roofing recommends the EPDM roofing system for low-slope commercial roofing projects. The EPDM (ethylene propylene diene terpolymer) rubber roofing membrane provides high-resistance to fatigue, ozone, weathering, and abrasion. EPDM provides protection from severe weather, high UV exposure, extreme heat and fire, meanwhile maintaining flexibility in low temperatures and thermal shock durability. The system’s high resistances to wind damage can be customized to meet a variety of wind uplift criteria from Factory Mutual, including 1-60, 1-90, and 1-120 ratings and greater, to sustain the turbulent winds and temperature fronts on the Front Range.
Benefits of EPDM
- Environmentally-Friendly With a low-embodied energy number, EPDM is one of the most sustainable and environmentally responsible roofing materials used today. And, once they have met their lifetime value, the membranes are recycled to become walkway pads or for other purposes.
- Energy-Efficient EPDM has high 0emissivity which allows the heat energy to be reflected back into the atmosphere instead of being absorbed by the building. As a result, a building can “cool off” faster at night, rather than hold the heat and reduce overall energy costs.
- Time– and Cost– Savings EPDM’s ease of installation (ballasted, fully adhered and mechanically attached) on slopes with positive drainage and vertical applications and competitive pricing provide tremendous economic value to the low-slope commercial roofing industry.
