What is The Life Expectancy of EPDM Rubber Roofs?
EPDM Rubber roofs have a 50 year life expectancy.
EPDM has been in commercial use since the 1960s. And many of those roofs are still around today.
My roof has a small hole which is causing a leak, how easy is it to repair this?
One of the most evident benefits of EPDM rubber roofing is that it can be repaired very quickly and easily, allowing you to catch a problem before it turns into something much bigger!
