EPDM Roofing System
EPDM roofing systems are available in flexible sheets or roll form. The sheets can be installed using a hot-air welding method, hot air welding machine, soling rubber gun, or rubber trowel. Rubber tacking is the other method used for EPDM sheet installation. It involves using a metal tacking strip to hold the sheets until they are joined together with sealant tape and solvent adhesive tapes.
Rubber Roofing Installation
When you are looking for rubber roof installation, there are a few steps that you must consider. First of all, the rubber roofing sheets need to be installed over an insulation mat usually made from asphalt and fiberglass. It helps support your new rubber roof and allows the adhesive to bond better to the material. If you want your rubber roofing installation to be a success, make sure that the insulation mat is appropriately installed and follows all of the manufacturer’s guidelines for installation.
The next step in rubber roofing installation is applying a primer coat. It helps create a foundation for your adhesive and acts as a sealant against water damage. Next up is the adhesive/sealant tape that will help to fuse with your rubber roofing sheets. After all of these steps have been taken care of, a sealant powder coat can be applied, which provides additional protection from water penetration and other elements.
Rubber Roof Membrane
The ethylene propylene diene monomer rubber material is often used as a roofing membrane. Since it is an elastomeric material, it has high durability and resistance to weather elements. It is also resistant to chemical corrosion and many acids, alkalis, and hydrocarbons. EPDM roofing solutions are used in industrial, commercial, and residential roofs. They are often used in rooftop gardens due to their high resistance to weather elements and chemical corrosion.
Single-ply EPDM Roofing
Single-ply EPDM roofs are a popular option for those who don’t want to worry about their rooftop coming loose or leaking during a heavy downpour. They will also help keep your roof protected from snow as well as ice buildup during the winter months. A single-ply EPDM roof is a great way to ensure your rooftop will stay protected from the elements and can even help you save money on energy costs because they help insulate your building.
EPDM Flat Roof
EPDM flat roofing installation is straightforward. Usually, the EPDM sheet is laid on top of an existing roof membrane or insulation (if there already exists one). However, if rigid surfaces are present, adhesives must be used to fix the sheets in place. During installing EPDM flat roofing, proper sealing is critical; it should be done on all the joints. Tapes like rubber tape and adhesive tapes are often used to ensure the total waterproof installation of the membrane.
