The average EPDM installation is one of the safest processes in the commercial roofing industry. There are no open flames, heavy asphalt or heavy-duty equipment to worry about, which is good if you don’t want the operations of your commercial property interrupted by construction above.
One of the biggest benefits of choosing an EPDM roof is the various installation methods available to us. There are three main ways of installing this type of roof, which allows us to tailor the installation to best suit the unique needs of your property. The installation methods we may use depending on your instructions or building’s layout include:
When we choose to fully-adhere the EPDM roof, we apply glue to the underside of the membrane to the existing substrate.
The membrane is loosely laid and ballasted with gravel to hold it down. Large warehouses and commercial retail units commonly use this method of installation because it’s cost-effective even with so much ground to cover.
Before the membrane is laid, we will mechanically attach an insulation board to the roof deck. Once that’s done, we will attach the roof membrane through the insulation to the substrate with a mechanical fastener.
If you are not sure which installation method makes most sense for your property, give us a call today and we’ll be happy to consult with you.
Even though EPDM roofs are known for their durability, they are invincible. In the event that the membrane does sustain a bit of damage, it’s really easy to fix. In fact, it’s not uncommon for aging EPDM roofs to be successfully repaired to prolong service life, adding to the sustainable qualities eco-conscious businesses are drawn to.
Repairs typically involve cutting and removing the damaged portion of the roof, cleaning off all loose fragments of debris and peeling back a section of the original roof to fit the brand-new piece of EPDM. And while we are happy to repair your EPDM roof when necessary, we are also available to provide preventative maintenance to save you money in the long-run.
