Sustainable, long-lasting building products are revolutionizing the construction industry. Top manufacturers are developing products that conserve natural resources. VersiGard EDPM is one of few membranes on the market with more than 50 years of actual use. Boasting an industry leading UV weather resistance, these membranes exhibit incredible resistance to hail and other extreme environmental conditions. Finally, when compared to alternative commercial roofing membranes, EDPM roofs produce the lowest acid rain, smog and global warming potential. In other words, these products have a minimal carbon footprint while outlasting similar, less durable roofing membranes.
A study completed on behalf of the EPDM Roofing Association (ERA) provided solid, scientific proof of information many in the industry have known for years; that EPDM stands the test of time. The study observed the level of performance of EPDM roofs in the field between 28 and 32 years after installation. Each EPDM roof observed proved to be performing above or just below ASTM minimum properties for today’s newly manufactured 45-mil EPDM membrane. Researchers tested several variables including: thickness, elongation (XD and MD) and factory seam strength. In the end, they found that EPDM commercial roofing systems withstand the effects of harsh weather conditions and can meet or exceed 40 years of field service.
It’s cost effective, environmentally-friendly, long-lasting and easily repairable.
In addition to producing a minimal carbon footprint, EPDM membrane roofs help to reduce energy costs. Black EPDM provides energy saving in cold climates while white EPDM helps to reduce air conditioning costs in warmer environments.
It's not uncommon for aging EPDM roofs to be successfully repaired to prolong service life; adding to the sustainability benefits of this popular type of commercial roofing. Discover why we are Denver’s preferred residential and commercial roofing company!

Though the lifespan of an EPDM roof is dependent on many factors, including climate and maintenance, the average EPDM roof will last between 20 and 30 years.
While both roofing applications have their benefits, the seams of a properly installed TPO roof are much more durable than EPDM. However, EPDM can offer a cost effective solution for many building owners.
