What is an EPDM Flat Roof?

A rubber or EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer) roof is a durable synthetic rubber membrane used on roofs worldwide. It’s a popular choice among architects, roof consultants and contractors alike as it can be suitable for roofs of varying sizes in almost every climate.

EPDM roof systems are made from an extremely strong and durable composite material, which is easy to handle, light and flexible. This form of flat roofing has undergone a range of developments over the years, and now boasts a longer lifespan (upto 30 years) and less maintenance.

Benefits that a EPDM roofing system offers, includes:


  • Long-lasting and hard-wearing with instances of a lifespan of 30 years
  • Cost-effective
  • Can be repaired and restored
  • Water resistant
  • Resistance to hail
  • Resistance to heat and UV
  • Flexible material makes it suitable for roofs of various shapes and slants
  • Suitable in low temperatures
  • Resistance to wind damage
  • No naked flames required for installation
  • No wastage from roofing membranes
