EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer) rubber roofing confers hearty resistance to weather, heat, and ozone. Available in both black and white, lightweight EPDM systems are easy to install. They not only waterproof your roof, but also require little to no maintenance and installation can be performed on roofs of all shapes and designs. Since it is only fastened on the perimeter, to weigh down the roof, the EPDM is covered with gravel or aggregate. Mainline Roofing can help you decide the roofing type that is right for you, whether it’s EPDM or another material.
Another rubberized modifier for asphalt is SBS (styrene-butadiene-styrene) modified bitumen. Reinforced by a non-woven polyester or glass mat, it comes in sheets and performs very well in temperature extremes—no cracking in the winter or softening in the summer.
