EPDM (ethylene propylene diene terpolymer) is a very common choice for commercial and industrial flat roofs. It is known for its flexibility and durability – it has an extremely high puncture resistance! However, with the good, there is always a downside. EPDM membranes are commonly dark rubber, which absorbs the sun’s UV rays as heat. This can cause your membrane to stretch and contract, which can cause roofing issues later down the road.

Most Common Issues
There are various issues that plague rubber roofs, including:
- Ponding water – this is when moisture sits on the roofing membrane 48 hours or more after rainfall. Ponding water can deteriorate your roofing system if not handled quickly.
- Pooling water – this is similar to ponding water, but the difference is pooling water is beneath the roofs membrane. This can not only deteriorate your roofing membrane, it can also deteriorate your buildings structure and damage your insulation. If you notice pooling water, call a professional immediately.
- Blisters, punctures, cracks or bubbles – These can happen from weather, from debris, or even from heavy foot traffic on your roof. If not handled in a timely manner, they can begin to allow water to leak into your facility. No one likes a leaky roof!
- Loose bonds – If the bonds that hold your roof to your structure become loose, water and debris may infiltrate your facility.
If you have noticed any of these warning signs, or anything else out of the ordinary, it’s time to call in the professionals.
