Diamond Roofing Specialists, Inc. Specialist is the leading residential and commercial roofing company in our local area because of our excellent products and services. Many property owners choose us for their projects because of our signature quality service and great products from trusted manufacturers like Firestone. Today, we will talk about one of the roofing materials that we install: EPDM.
EPDM roofing systems are an excellent choice for your commercial building because of their proven track record. EPDM roofs first appeared in the 1960s and have gone on to demonstrate their excellent durability and weather resistance since then. Today, roofing companies have installed millions of square feet of single-ply EPDM roofing systems. EPDM roofs excel under actual field conditions thanks to their excellent weather resistance, flexibility in low temperatures, and excellent thermal shock durability.
EPDM roofs can also serve as an energy-efficient roofing system for your building. Our Firestone RubberGard™ EPDM Roofing Systems can reduce energy costs by up to 25% more than other roofing systems. This is because the EPDM system has high emissivity, allowing the material to reflect the heat energy from the sun back into the atmosphere. There are ENERGY STAR®-approved coatings on the market that will improve the system’s energy performance as well.
Excellent Weather Resistance
EPDM roofs can protect your commercial property from harsh weather. The material resists fluctuations in temperature, UV rays, and ozone. It also possesses a long-term weathering ability allowing it to last for over 50 years. Testing using actual EPDM roofs on buildings has confirmed that its physical characteristics do not change within 30 years. The cost to remediate and extend an EPDM’s life is also low. It can be as little as 5% of the cost of a new roof, making EPDM roofs a cost-effective long-term choice for your building.
We can design and install an effective commercial roofing system for your property. We can also implement a proactive maintenance program and maintain and repair your new roof anytime it has problems. This will ensure your roof lasts its entire service life and will help you make the most of your investment. We serve many communities in CT including Waterbury, Danbury, and Watertown.
