Is a Rubber Roof Right For You?
In many cases, we have found that the option of a rubber roof does not generally cross an owners mind until we suggest that they consider the possibility. Since the advent of ethylene propylene diene monomer rubber (EPDM), rubber roofing has become more affordable, attractive, and exceptionally durable, meaning that it is a great contender for many different roofing needs. This is not to say that a rubber roof is the best solution for all roofing situations, but we are happy to discuss the options with our clients and prospective clients in order to give one more choice while we are working towards the optimal solution that fits all of their important needs.
One of the major advantages of a rubber roof is that they are extremely cost-effective, both with installation costs as well as maintenance and useful life. EPDM roofing comes in long, lightweight sheets, meaning that a licensed installer is able to work quickly and efficiently to lay the panels out and create a waterproof seal. This means that there is a lot less labor for the installation, meaning a lot less cost of labor. In addition, the panels are long-lasting and extremely durable, saving you time and money over the life of your roof. Because the panels are laid in as large a piece as possible, and sometimes may be one continuous piece across the entire roof, there are few locations that could lead to leaky seams, and therefore rot and water damage. In certain cases, a properly installed rubber roof can last upwards of 50 years from the time of installation.
Cons of Rubber Roofing
The most notable drawback of a rubber roof is that is is not the most aesthetically appealing of options. However, if you are not interested in selecting the most attractive roof with a substantial cost because of the appearance, or if you are willing to sacrifice looks for cost, durability, reliability, and lifetime, then a rubber roof can be an excellent choice for your building.
Although rubber is not exceptionally attractive when laid in a single panel, there are now a variety of options such as different colors or different cutting options in order to replicate the appearance of shingles.
Repairs to Rubber Roofing
While rubber roofs are known to be exceptionally durable and long-lasting, there is always the possibility that it may be damaged due to weather conditions or a variety of other factors. However, repairs to rubber roofs are very simple because they only require patching and relatively easy gluing for patching materials.
One of the most important things to keep in mind while making repairs to your rubber roof, or if you are planning to make DIY repairs or hire a professional, is that you will likely want to ensure that there is no additional damage done to the frame of the house insulation and that there is no mold that may have grown in the dark, damp eaves of the roof under the leaky area. Sealing a leak will not kill existing mold, meaning that it may need to be treated in order to ensure that it will not continue to expand.
