EPDM Roofing Installation & Replacement


Architects, roof consultants, property managers, and manufacturers typically agree on EPDM or rubber roofing as the low-slope commercial roofing material of choice when it comes to long-term performance.  This membrane is the only single ply with over 50 years of in-place experience.  The long-term value, superior hail resistance, dimensional flexibility, reparability and overall durability combined to provide a remarkable choice when deciding what type of roof is best for your commercial or industrial building.

Our installation teams are built of experienced, detail-oriented roofing technicians who are certified by leading EPDM manufacturers (most contractors fail to pursue certifications).  They have installed hundreds of EPDM systems on a variety of buildings. All are adept at installing the systems in each of these methods:

  • Ballasted
  • Fully Adhered 
  • VacuSeal Vacuum System
  • Mechanically Attached

EPDM Roofing Installation – Ballasted Method

 Ballasted designs incorporate loose-laid insulation and membrane and the use of ballast or pavers as securement.  This method is chosen for it’s lower cost, especially for new construction.

EPDM Roofing Installation – Fully Adhered Method

Fully adhered systems require mechanical or adhesive attachment of the insulation and a 100% bonding of the membrane to the insulation.  This method is for owners who desire a non-ballasted surface to service their roof easier and enjoy reduced labor and material costs in comparison to the hefty repair costs of the ballasted systems.

EPDM Roofing Installation – Mechanically Attached

 Mechanically attached systems require mechanical attachment of the insulation to the deck and mechanical attachment of the membrane within the seam area. This method is for owners who are looking for a cost conscious option with still achieving long-term roof system performance. Mechanically attached systems use reinforced membranes so less waterproofing membrane goes onto the roof than fully adhered, but is a much faster installation. Dimensional stability increases greatly over the fully adhered and also provides a higher puncture resistance.​

Why We Are Big Big Fans of EDPM Roofing for Buildings in Lansing and All Mid-Michigan

EPDM (ethylene propylene diene terpolymer) roofing is a popular choice for flat roofs in Central Michigan for several reasons:

  1. Durability: EPDM roofing is known for its durability and can last upwards of 45 years or more with proper maintenance. It can withstand extreme weather conditions, including high winds, hail, and ponding water. (Hail and ponding water put all other types of systems at risk of premature failure.)
  2. Flexibility: EPDM roofing is flexible and can easily adjust to the expansion and contraction of a building’s structure without cracking or tearing. Other membranes start to develop cracking at angle changes as they age.
  3. Energy efficiency: EPDM roofing can absorb sunlight, reducing heating costs during cold winter months. It also creates less waste by lasting substantially longer than the other systems remaining in-place on your building rather than adding to a land fill.
  4. Low maintenance: EPDM roofing generally requires minimal maintenance during its warranty phase and can be easily repaired if damaged.
  5. Cost-effective: EPDM roofing is an affordable option for flat roofs due to its long lifespan, ultimately making it the cost-effective choice in the long run when it comes to membranes.
  6. Environmentally friendly: EPDM roofing can be a recyclable material, making it an environmentally friendly choice. It also creates less waste by lasting substantially longer than the other systems remaining in-place on your building rather than adding to a land fill.

Overall, EPDM roofing is a great choice for flat roofs in Central Michigan due to its durability, flexibility, energy efficiency, low maintenance, and cost-effectiveness. We recommend a free consultation with our experienced staff to determine if EPDM roofing is the best choice for your specific building and circumstances.

Lansing Area’s EDPM Roofing Repair Experts

Our professional commercial roofing repair team fixes EPDM (ethylene propylene diene terpolymer) roofing by following these general steps:

  1. Identify the damaged area: The first step is to identify the damaged area of the EPDM roofing. This may involve inspecting the entire roof to ensure that no other areas are damaged.
  2. Clean the area: The damaged area is then cleaned using a specially formulated cleaner that removes any dirt, debris, or other materials that may be present.
  3. Cut and shape the patch: A patch is cut to size and shape from a new piece of EPDM roofing material. The patch is typically larger than the damaged area to ensure complete coverage.
  4. Apply adhesive: An adhesive is then applied to both the patch and the damaged area of the EPDM roofing. The adhesive is allowed to dry until it is tacky.
  5. Install the patch: The patch is carefully placed onto the damaged area, ensuring that it is aligned and centered correctly. The patch is then smoothed out to ensure that it is fully adhered to the roofing surface.
  6. Seal the edges: The edges of the patch are then sealed using a special sealant. This helps to prevent water from getting underneath the patch and causing further damage.
  7. Inspect and test: The repaired area is inspected and tested to ensure that it is fully repaired and no leaks are present.
