What is EPDM roofing?
EPDM is an abbreviation for ethylene propylene diene monomer. This is a rubberized membrane used on flat roofing systems. There are options in black or white-on-black membranes, with the later being used primarily for flashing.
What is TPO roofing and how is it different from EPDM?
TPO is a different type of membrane used on flat roofing systems. It costs less than EPDM. TPO can sometimes have problems such as pulling away at the edges or seams. The ethylene propylene is combined with diene to make the rubberized EPDM membrane while TPO is a blend of polypropylene and ethylene-propylene rubber.
What type of signs can I watch for that indicate my flat roof is having problems?
There are some obvious signs of flat roofing problems and then there are many that you may not notice. The most obvious signs are cracks or blistering of the surface or if the roof is separating at seams or joints. More significant problems can be sinking or sagging in places. If you have a flat roofing system, it is best to get a professional roof inspection at least once a year, especially after storms.
I was told I need a roof replacement but I'm not sure that's accurate. Can you give me a second opinion?
Absolutely. We offer second opinions about roof replacements all the time, and there's no harm in your wanting to be certain before you take on a significant project like this.
