Ridgeline Roofers Columbia, a roofing company in Columbia, MD, wants to point out that they can provide ethylene propylene diene terpolymer (EPDM) roofing that can decrease energy costs for homes. A flat roof is often found in many modern homes and EPDM roofing may be the suitable solution for a residential roofing project. Not only will this kind of roofing with an extremely strong rubber membrane minimize energy costs but it has also been designed to withstand heavy rains, strong winds, high heat, and hailstorms.
Ernest Krebs, founder of Ridgeline Roofers, says, “EPDM is a highly durable synthetic rubber roofing membrane that is commonly used on flat and low-slope roofs. Ethylene and propylene are produced from oil and natural gas, which are the two primary materials. The roofing membrane is very durable and its performance is not hampered by extreme weather conditions.”
EPDM roofing provides the advantage of high durability because it is made from highly durable synthetic rubber roofing membrane that is usually utilized in flat and low-slope roofs. It has strong durability because it can withstand extreme weather conditions. EPDM roofs also offer the advantage of being available in a range of colors, including black, white, and brown. Two kinds of reinforcements are also available for EPDM roofs, which are the non-woven fabric and continuous filament.
EPDM can either be used as a single-ply roofing to offer a 100 percent waterproof and weatherproof roof. It can also be used on top of another roofing system like shingles, metal or tiles to provide an added layer of protection.
A disadvantage of EPDM roofs is the possibility of getting damaged by hail, UV rays, debris, or other elements. EPDM roofs can develop bubbles or blisters that result into “patches” in the roofing membrane. Ridgeline Roofers can provide the EPDM roof repair to resolve such issues.
EPDM roofing is often recommended for homes because of its extreme durability. An EPDM roof can be expected to stand strong during the high temperatures of summer and the cold temperatures of winter. In addition, an EPDM roof can last for approximately 30 years before it has to be replaced, which makes them great investments for any homeowner.
Unfortunately, because of its unique characteristics, EPDM roofing is most suitable for roofs with only a low slope. Thus, a home with a steeply pitched roof will usually not be suitable for EPDM unless it is redesigned to have flat roof.

They have more than 30 years of combined experience and they are confident they will be able to offer the best roofing service.
