What are The Benefits

One of the key benefits of E.P.D.M roofing is its longevity. This roofing material has a lifespan of up to 50 years when properly installed and maintained, making it a long-term investment for your property. Additionally, E.P.D.M roofing is highly resistant to punctures, tears, and impact damage, which means it can withstand harsh weather conditions and other potential hazards. Another advantage of E.P.D.M roofing is its energy efficiency. E.P.D.M roofs are reflective and can help reduce heat absorption, which can lower your energy bills and contribute to a more comfortable indoor environment. Additionally, E.P.D.M roofing is eco-friendly and can be recycled at the end of its lifespan, making it a sustainable choice for environmentally conscious property owners.

How Does E.P.D.M Differ From Traditional Materials

Compared to traditional roofing materials, such as asphalt shingles and metal roofing, E.P.D.M roofing offers several key differences. One of the most significant differences is its durability and resistance to weathering. While traditional roofing materials can be susceptible to cracking, fading, and other forms of damage over time, E.P.D.M roofing is highly resistant to these types of issues and can last up to 50 years with proper maintenance. Additionally, E.P.D.M roofing is a more energy-efficient and eco-friendly option compared to traditional roofing materials, as it is highly reflective and can help lower energy costs while also being recyclable at the end of its lifespan. Overall, E.P.D.M roofing is a versatile and long-lasting option for flat and low-slope roofs that offers numerous benefits over traditional roofing materials.

Lead is highly versatile and has been used in roofing for years. This is because it’s not only easy to source, but it is cost-effective, highly durable and water resistant. However, over time the elements do what they do best and erode away the performance of your lead roof. If you’ve noticed that your lead roofing is starting to look a little tired, then it might be time for you to replace it.

No one wants surprises, especially if they come with financial implications. If you own a property, the chances are that you understand the shock associated with an extensive repair and this is no different for lead roofing. When it comes to lead roof maintenance, you must monitor it regularly to detect problems early enough to prevent the need to do expensive repairs down the road. Although it may sound trivial, it is often outside of a property owner’s general tasks or routine.
