EPDM is an acronym that refers to the chemical ethylene propylene diene monomer used in many industrial applications that is known most commonly for its application in low slope commercial roofing. If you’re reading this, there’s a high chance that your commercial building has an EPDM roof as the material has soared to popularity in the United States over the past 40 years, largely due to its elasticity and durability. It can fit easily around pipes, skylights, and gutters, and it tends not to crack like other roofing materials because of moisture or dryness.
Another great aspect of EPDM roofs is their ability to be restored to their original installation quality without hefty expenses or disruptions to business operations.

Prevent the Need for Future Repairs with Routine EPDM Roof Inspection in New Jersey
Prior to discussing our approach to repairing EPDM roofs, we’d like to discuss how routine EPDM roof inspection in New Jersey with our team of experienced, highly-dedicated roofing professionals can prevent the need for future repairs. We believe in commercial roof inspections at least twice a year as well as any time your EPDM roof has been recently exposed to inclement weather, such as hurricanes, tornadoes, or high winds. These inspections are absolutely critical to helping locate minor problems before they have the chance to turn into serious emergencies.
Here are some things to keep in mind when considering routine inspection for your EPDM roof. First and foremost, shrinkage is a common occurrence on EPDM roofs. If left unchecked, this can lead to poor insulation, UV exposure, and a significant decrease in the lifespan of your roof. Similarly, a number of chemicals have the potential to comprise your EPDM roofing system over time, such as animal fats, grease, and petroleum solvents. Should we locate any of these minor issues during an inspection, we’ll act fast to advise you on the necessary repairs and your available options within your budget.
Restore Your EPDM Roof to its Original Quality
If your EPDM roofing system is reaching the end of its lifespan, don’t immediately turn to a complete roof replacement. So long as your roof is structurally sound with no underlying problems, it may be a good candidate for restoration via system enhancements.
