When choosing a roofing material for your commercial building, you'll want to consider how steep or how flat your roof is.
For commercial buildings with a steep roof, a metal or steel material would be a good choice. You could even choose a more traditional shingle roofing on sloped roofs if you'd like.
On the other hand, many commercial and office buildings have roofs with a low slope--meaning they are either flat or close to flat. In this case, an EPDM roof or a rock ballast roof installation would be your best option (more on these below!).
EPDM stands for ethylene propylene diene terpolymer, but that's industry jargon. Put more simply, EPDM roofing is rubber roofing made of lasting synthetic material. This type of roofing is one of the most popular for low-slope roofs and you'll usually see EPDM used on buildings with mostly flat roofs.
Rock ballast roofs are sometimes used an alternative on low-slope or flat roofs. Rock ballast roofs are also rubber roofs, but they're more loosely laid because they're held down by rocks. EPDM roofing is actually glued down and fastened all around the edges. This means that EPDM roofing is going to last longer, so it's a great choice for commercial structures and offices especially
We're confident that you'll quickly recognize the many benefits of commercial EPDM roofing. One of the main benefits of using EPDM roofing is its longevity. This type of roofing can last up to 25 years, saving you time and the hassle of replacing your roof more often.
In addition, EPDM roofing is highly cost-effective, energy-efficient and is generally quick to install and repair.
