EPDM Single – Ply Roofing Systems Part 2

How Long Do They Last?
As with most roofs, EPDM rubber roofs have varying lifespans that depend on numerous criteria.  These include environmental conditions such as what type of building (factory or church), how much foot traffic the roof gets, how much water remains on the roof after a rain, and how long it take that water to evaporate.  Not to mention geographical location.  Roofs in mild climates will outlast roofs in harsher climates.  Of course, one of the most important factors in a roof’s life expectancy is quality of workmanship.  If the roof is not properly installed, then its lifespan will be shortened.

Properly installed EPDM rubber roofs should last between 12 and 25 years.  Here’s a brief breakdown base on observations over the past 15 years::

  • 45 Mil Ballasted EPDM Rubber properly installed that drains well – 12 years
  • 45 Mil Mechanically Attached roof properly installed that drains well – 12 years
  • 45 Mil Adhered roof properly installed that drains well – 12+ years
  • 60 Mil Ballasted EPDM Rubber properly installed that drains well – 12+ years
  • 60 Mil Mechanically Attached roof properly installed that drains well – 15 years
  • 60 Mil Adhered roof properly installed that drains well – 15+ years
  • 80+ Mil Mechanically Attached roof properly installed that drains well – 20+ years
  • 80+ Mil Adhered roof properly installed that drains well – 20+ years
  • 80+ Mil Fleeceback Adhered roof properly installed that drains well – 25+ years
