EPDM Flat Roof Replacement Experts
If your commercial building currently has EPDM roofing or another style of flat membrane roof and needs to be replaced, Emmons is here to help. It is very important that you choose the right company for the job. There are many companies that will install a new flat roof for you, but it requires a commercial roofer with skill and experience to install a roof that will last 50 years or more. Our commercial roofers in New Jersey and Pennsylvania are skilled, experienced, certified, and insured. These are accomplished tradespeople who appreciate the nuances of the EPDM roof installation and replacement processes and can tailor installs to many different applications, including apartment complexes, condominiums, hotels, restaurants, retail stores, banks, government sites, educational buildings, and so forth.
Has Your Roof Been Damaged?
A characteristic of EPDM roofing that makes it such a popular choice for commercial buildings is that it requires little to no maintenance and can be neglected and not leak or develop other issues. That said, we do not recommend ignoring your flat roof. We advise scheduling an annual professional inspection, regular visual inspections by the owner or building manager, and scheduling a professional inspection immediately after any extreme weather event. While EPDM can withstand significant wear and tear, it can be vulnerable to storm damage especially when a roof is not installed properly. Emmons can inspect your roof and perform any required maintenance and repairs.

What is EPDM: Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer
EPDM is a synthetic rubber that is cost-effective to manufacture and highly durable. That makes it suitable for a wide range of applications, including commercial and residential flat roofing. Another reason for its popularity is its versatility. It can be made in either a black or white color and a wide variety of thicknesses and widths. It is the most prevalent flat roof material not just in New Jersey and Pennsylvania but throughout the U.S. and can last 50 years and even longer. It is appropriate for flat, low, and steep-slope roofs and ideal for roof-over applications. It is watertight throughout its life and resistant to extreme temperatures, wind, hail, thermal shock, and UV radiation.
Is an EPDM Roofing Membrane Right for Your Building?
EPDM is the ideal choice in many roofing scenarios. EPDM roofing is affordable and has a low total cost of ownership relative to other commercial roofing systems. The material is durable and easy to maintain. It can last upward of 50 years. It provides energy savings by making your building easier to heat and cool due to the way the material expands and contracts, and it is a sustainable material that is 100% recyclable when it comes time to replace it. If you are unsure if EPDM is right for you, Emmons can perform a professional evaluation and provide you with an expert and honest opinion.

Other Flat Roofing Materials We Work With
As a leading commercial roofing contractor serving Pennsylvania and New Jersey, we work with the full range of materials used for commercial roofing systems. In addition to EPDM, we provide installation, replacement, inspection, maintenance, and repair services for TPO and BUR.
TPO stands for thermoplastic polyolefin. This is a lightweight and heat-reflective roofing membrane that is resistant to extreme temperatures, inclement weather, punctures, bacterial growth, and fire. A notable characteristic of TPO is air-welded seams, which can withstand high winds.
Built-Up Roofing (BUR)
BUR stands for built-up roofing. It is called such because the process involves alternating layers of gravel and tar, and how much the roof is built up can vary depending on the application. Durability and cost directly correlate with the layer count installed. BUR is flexible, resists heat and UV radiation, and holds up well to foot traffic but has a relatively short lifespan of approximately 20 years.
