Rubber roofing is a synthetic single-ply membrane specifically made for use on residential and commercial roofing applications.
It is ideal for use in a residential or light commercial situation where there is a low-sloping or flat roof. And depending on the size of the roof, it can be covered with one single sheet, eliminating the need for seams.
Compared to other roofing materials, rubber roofing has several advantages:
- It is less expensive than traditional asphalt shingles and easier to install, reducing the cost of materials and installation. Additionally,
- Rubber can withstand high winds and extreme hot and cold temperatures and even hail up to 3 inches in size. Also,
- It is considered energy-efficient since it can reflect sun’s rays reducing the cost of energy in hot season and when combined with proper insulating material, reduce heating cost in winter as well.
- Rubber roofing is considered fire resistant; intentionally, offering a building owner savings over property insurance cost.
A properly installed rubber roofing system can last 50 years plus. Also, It requires very little maintenance and repairs can be accomplished relatively easy by a trained rubber roofing professional.
