A rubber roof is covered with a rubber membrane (ethylene propylene diene terpolymer). This roofing option is very popular for commercial properties because it provides many advantages.
First of all, this product is affordable compared to the price of other types of roofing, and installation is very easy, involving gluing the membrane into place without using heat. The lifespan of such a roof can be very long – even up to 50 years, if it is installed flawlessly, by professional Denver commercial roofing professionals, and maintained; it will withstand extreme cold weather, high winds and hailstones up to 3 inches, as well as the constant exposure to sunlight, providing very good energy-efficiency.
A rubber roof is lightweight, so there is no need for building owners to worry about structural safety or reinforcing the building`s structure. It is also easy to repair and it does not need complicated maintenance operations. It is also 100% recyclable.
Considering all these aspects, rubber roofing for commercial properties is a great choice. The only drawback may be related to its appearance, considering that most of these membranes are black. However, they can be easily painted in almost any acrylic color – and painting them will actually prolong their lifespan.
