And while EPDM roofing contractors provide warranty and manufacturers will generally provide a warranty of approximately 20 years, on average, many find that the lifespan of these roofs often exceeds fifty years.

Repairs are easy, and this type of system provides fire resistance (Class A). Depending on the configuration, it can also be extremely lightweight.

Roof Membranes Tested for Extreme Temperatures

ASTM standards measure Ethylene Propylene Diene Terpolymer roofing membranes as having the ability to withstand extreme temperature variations, with temperatures at -49 degrees F before the membrane becoming brittle. Conversely, in lab tests, it has also withstood temperatures as hot as 240 degrees F during a testing period of four weeks.

Whether you have colder environments like New York and New Jersey or the extreme hot temperatures of South Florida, this material can withstand it. It also does extremely well in environments such as the desert, that experiences both weather extremes.
