EPDM Rubber Flat Roofing

Generally all EPDM rubber is the same; different companies do different things with it. EPDM sheet rubber roofing is a highly versatile material.

EPDM (ethylene-propylene-diene monomer) is a man made rubber that’s been around a long time. A good example is the rubber that’s used around car doors or windscreens, out in all weather and exposed to the sun for years.
