Rubber Roofing

Keeping the Roof Over Your Head

Rubber may not be the first material that comes to your mind when thinking of roofing your home, but homeowners are increasingly choosing this material due to its cost-effectiveness. Besides being a relatively cheap material, it is also extremely easy to install, reducing labor costs. At New Heights Roofing, our professionals install both granulated rolled roofing and fully adhered EPDM roofing, both of which are used for different needs. We work with homeowners in Concord, NH, and the surrounding areas.

Benefits of Rubber Roofing

Rubber roofing is easily pliable and waterproof, which means it is great for roofs that aren’t steep and can’t dispel water as easily.
This type of roofing can last much longer than other materials. It also requires very little maintenance and is easy to repair, and the material is 100% recyclable.
Because rubber can be installed over existing shingles by just placing a layer of foam between the shingles and the rubber, installing rubber roofing is fairly easy to install and doesn’t take much time.
The foam placed underneath the rubber helps add insulation, decreasing energy costs. Rubber also reflects the sun’s heat, reducing the need for air conditioning.
Not only is rubber fire-resistant, but it can actually slow down a fire in your home. Some homeowners’ insurance plans will even give you a rate reduction for having an EPDM rubber roof.

Granulated Rolled Roofing Vs. Fully Adhered EPDM Rubber

Granulated rolled roofing is a rubber material that comes in rolls of 100 square feet, making it much easier to install than individual shingles. It is installed horizontally across the roof and is much cheaper than other roofing materials. However, because this material is thin and not very durable, it is most often used for non-residential structures, such as garages, sheds, and barns.

On the other hand, EPDM, which stands for Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer, is ideal for low-sloped homes. Although it does not have the versatility in colors that asphalt has (it comes in black, but can be painted white for aesthetics and heat reflection), EPDM is extremely easy to install—sometimes, it can be installed in just one sheet, which means no seams. Although EPDM used to generally be used for commercial structures and flat roofs, it is now being used for all types of roofs due to its affordability and ease of installation.
