EPDM roof, known as a rubber roof is very durable and takes the abuse of hail and harsh Kansas City, MO weather very well. It is applied to a variety of roof deck substrates. Sometimes it is used as a first roof option. Other times it’s used as a reroof solution. EPDM has a great life expectancy. Under ideal conditions 30 to 50 years
It can be mechanically fastened, which is a great way to fasten it down. But limits its forgiveness as it cures out on your roof. Which can create fastener holes to tear out. And put stress on your seams, which results in seam failures.
It also may be attached around the perimeter of your roof. Then have smooth rocks put on top to keep the wind from getting underneath it and lifting it off your roof. Rocks slow down your water flow and also add tons of weight on your roof. But also, allows the rubber to cure out without as much stress on the seams.
