Rubber Roofing - Benefits

Rubber roofing is a type of roofing product that not many homeowners know or even considered for their own home. If you are looking to install rubber roofing for your home or want to know the benefits that it provides, you have come to the right place. At Affordable Home Services, we offer stellar rubber roofing solutions that suit a wide range of homes and buildings.

What Is Rubber Roofing?

Roofing specialists have known for quite some time the cons of using traditional asphalt shingles on low pitch or flat roofs. The problem is that gravity’s influence is simply insufficient to help shingles, on flatter roofs, create a seal against leaks. In the roofing industry, a rubber roof is also known as an EPDM roof. The latter stands for Ethylene Propylene Diene Terpolymer. This rubbery alternative is an effective solution for reducing leaks and creating a more impenetrable seal. Although some manufacturers have created PVC roofing, it is still commonly referred to as rubber roofing.

When Do You Need Rubber Roofing in New Jersey?

You may consider rubber roofing when you want to implement more energy efficient and heat-reflective roofing systems for your home. TPO roofing, or thermoplastic polyolefin single-ply roofing membranes are known to provide exceptional resistance to chemical, ozone, and ultraviolet exposure.

Another scenario where homeowners opt for rubber roofing is when they want to improve their existing roof but do not want to tear it off. In this case, rubber roofing can be applied on top of a layer of foam. As the entire surface is now covered with this waterproof membrane, you get an extra layer of insulation and allow heat to be reflected away more effectively. This helps save time as well as cooling and high labor costs.
