With the growing concerns over global warming and the increasing awareness over pollutants, it is only natural that people start to look at all kinds of ways to help the environment, including their choice of roof materials. If you think about how big a roof is and how much material is involved in building it, as well as the role it plays in making your home more energy efficient, your choice of roof is probably affecting the environment more than you think.

If you are looking at having a new roof installed, either on your home, garage or shed, you should give a lot of thought towards the environmental impact. For the environmentally conscious homeowners, EPDM roofing is a choice that brings a number of major benefits to your home and to the environment.

Key benefits of EPDM roofing

  • One of the major benefits of EPDM is that because it is made of rubber, it is 100% recyclable after use, making it the most environmentally friendly roofing option.
  • Another key benefit is the durability of the material, as it can last for over 50 years.
  • The maintenance costs associated with EPDM are therefore generally much lower than you would have with other roofing materials.
  • EPDM is weatherproof, so rain will never penetrate it to cause leaks and damage your home. Shingles are often prone to cracking and becoming loose both through windy weather and through hot weather.
  • Rainwater does not get polluted by the EPDM membrane, so you can recycle the rainwater for later use. Many other materials will pollute rainwater.
  • EPDM provides a high level of insulation, which means that less heat will escape through your roof. It is estimated that around 25% of the heat that is generated from your boiler will escape via the roof, so any improvement you can make to roofing insulation will go a long way towards reducing your heating bills.
  • With EPDM, you do not need to remove moss and algae regularly as it is not prone to it in the way that shingles are. Moss and algae can be difficult to remove, so having rubber roofing will reduce the need for maintenance of this type.
  • One other benefit of using EPDM is that it is UV resistant, so it won’t fade and discolour from the sun like you see with other types of roof material.

To summarise, if you are looking for a roofing solution that is more environmentally friendly, has lower maintenance and offers a weatherproof, high insulating protection to your home then EPDM is the right roof membrane for you.
