Whether it’s time to replace an existing roof or you’re looking for the right commercial roofing option for a new building, single-ply roofing membrane systems are a great choice for flat roofs. One of the most popular single-ply materials for commercial roofing is EPDM Roofing. EPDM commercial roofs are commonly used in low-slope buildings across the U.S. and the world. Also known as ‘rubber roofing, EPDM has been a leading choice in the commercial roofing industry since the 1960s.

At Roof Positive, we specialize in the installation of flat and low slope roof systems for commercial, industrial, and retail buildings, including EPDM commercial roofing.

What Is EPDM Roofing?

Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer is a single-ply membrane that consists of a synthetic rubber compound that makes it one of the most durable and flexible roofing materials for low slope and flat commercial roofs. EPDM roofing has been widely utilized in the commercial roofing industry for more than 40 years on both new installations and older buildings. Depending on the needs of your commercial building or facility, it can be ballasted, mechanically attached, or fully adhered to the surface. Since the material is made from a single-ply, synthetic rubber, it is able to retain its shape and can be installed year-round in all kinds of climates and will last for years to come.

Why Choose EPDM Commercial Roofing For Your Building

There are so many reasons to invest in an EPDM roof, as it offers a variety of solutions to commercial businesses and facilities that are looking for a roofing solution for their low-sloping roofs. Some of the benefits of EPDM roofing include:

Durability & Longevity

One of the best things about EPDM roofing is that it is extremely durable and resilient. This is due to the type of material that is used, as it can resist dirt build-up, punctures, tears, as well as wind uplift, hail, and extreme temperatures. Because of its durability, EPDM roofing typically has a lifespan of about 20 or 30 years.


In addition to TPO roofing, EPDM roofing is one of the most efficient commercial roofing products on the market today. EPDM roof installation can help reduce heating and cooling costs and make the inside of your commercial building or facility more comfortable.

Low Maintenance

EPDM roofs require little maintenance compared to other roofing materials. This makes EPDM the ideal roofing material for commercial property owners or managers who may not have the time to keep up with annual roofing maintenance. Another benefit is that, should these durable roofs be damaged, repairs are very simple!
