EPDM has been a staple of the commercial roofing industry for decades. Our skilled commercial roofing contractors at Anchor Roofing are experts in EPDM roofing installation, repairs, and maintenance for flat and low-slope roofs.
If it’s time for a commercial roof replacement, you’re likely deciding between several options when it comes to materials. Why should you choose EPDM roofing for your new roof installation? EPDM provides several advantages as a commercial roofing material, including:
EPDM stands for ethylene propylene diene terpolymer. As a roofing material, it comes as a single-ply membrane that is unrolled and installed as a protective layer over your roofing system. EPDM is colloquially referred to as “rubber roofing,” since while it is a synthetic material, it is very similar to rubber in both appearance and its qualities.
EPDM roofing is very popular as a commercial roofing material, and if you own a commercial building, there’s a chance you already have an EPDM roof installed. At Anchor Roofing, we offer a complete selection of commercial roofing services applicable to EPDM roofing systems, including new roof installation, replacement, repairs, and annual inspections.
A reliable roof starts with expert installation. Our commercial roofing professionals at Anchor Roofing are able to expertly install and replace EPDM roofing systems that will protect your commercial property for decades.

EPDM roof installation is very straightforward for a trained commercial roofing professional. This is one of the key advantages of EPDM—since installation is simple, it can help to cut down on overall roof replacement costs by reducing the labor hours required.
When properly installed, EPDM roofs generally last between 20 and 30 years. However, expertly maintained EPDM roofing systems have been known to last for as long as 40 or even 50 years after installation.
EPDM roofs may be prone to shrinkage if not properly installed. This is especially the case for black EPDM roofs, though building owners are increasingly choosing white EPDM for their commercial roofs to cut down on energy costs. The best way to avoid common problems with EPDM is to hire a seasoned commercial roofing team.
