EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer), also know as a rubber roof. The EPDM roof has been one of the most common roof types installed since the oil crisis in 1980. Up until then coal-tar pitch and asphalt based roof systems dominated the market because they were oil based and oil was cheap and plentiful. When oil became somewhat harder to access, roofing manufacturers looked to rubber membranes as a solution. Well know rubber manufacturers like Carlisle, Goodyear and Firestone got into the roofing market. Today there is a long list of rubber manufacturers all working to create the absolute best EPDM roof available to consumers. The 35+ years of R&D these companies have poured into their products really shows today. Not only has the quality of the rubber membranes continued to get better but also the accessories necessary to properly install a rubber roof. Today’s Low VOC primers and glues are both environmentally safe and work exceptionally well.
