For over 40 years, the EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer) single-ply rubber roofing membrane has been an appealing choice of the low-slope commercial roofing industry. Serving the Ottawa Valley region, Ottawa Valley Roofing Ltd has been using the EPDM roofing system since 1982—both reinforced and non-reinforced. This is why it is the number one roofing choice of architects, roof consultants, and contractors for both new construction and replacement roofing projects, according to market surveys from Building Design & Construction, roofing/siding/insulation magazines, and the National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA). EPDM makes up over 1 billion square feet of new roof coverings in the United States annually and more than 500,000 warranted roof installations on 20 billion-plus square feet.
EPDM has gained industry-wide acceptance and respect by providing immediate and long-term roofing solutions. As environmentalists and code regulators place more emphasis on the sustainable performance of building materials, EPDM continues to be the roofing material that stands the test of time. Characteristics that contribute to EPDM's overall system performance include:
At Ottawa Valley Roofing Ltd, we have a close relationship with Carlisle, the regional EPDM provider that has established 50 years of excellence in the roofing industry. For more information on this energy-efficient material and how it can be incorporated into your project, please call our office.
