EPDM | Meis Roofing Of Fort Worth, TX
EPDM is a synthetic rubber used in roofing systems since the early 1970s. EPDM systems can be fully adhered, mechanically attached, or ballasted. EPDM rubber is a lightweight, resilient, strong material that is resistant to UV rays and ponding water. EPDM also has superior elongation properties that make it well suited to temperature extremes in which the material expands or contracts greatly. We offer warranties from 10 to 25 years with other warranty options available.
Since its introduction in 1980, Firestone RubberGard EPDM has dominated the single-ply roofing market through its proven performance, durability and flexibility over a wide range of building types. RubberGard EPDM has delivered more than two decades of commercial roofing success by building upon a heritage of innovation in rubber polymer technology.
The versatile membrane offers a variety of installation options including fully adhered, ballasted or mechanically attached that deliver superior long-term weatherability and exhibit exceptional wind uplift resistance.
Firestone RubberGard Platinum Roofing Systems deliver a 30-year warranty covering incidental punctures, high winds and hail up to two inches in diameter. RubberGard Platinum EPDM combines the strength of 90-mil RubberGard EPDM with Firestone HailGard composite insulation for outstanding thermal performance and puncture resistance.
