Our talented team of roofing contractors recently installed an all-new EPDM Rubberized Flat Roof and replaced water damaged roof decking on a home in Prospect Heights, Illinois.
What is Roof Decking?
Roof decking also known as sheathing, refers to the thin boards of wood that span the trusses of your homes roof. The decking works to support the rest of the roof. If your roof decking is subject to ongoing water explosure and continueally gets wet, it can develop wood rot and mold. If your roof decking begins to rot, it can greatly impact the performance of your whole roof.
Below are a couple of pictures of the finished project from the home in Prospect Heights.
What is an EPDM Flat Roof?
EPDM is an extremely durable synthetic rubber roofing membrane (ethylene propylene diene terpolymer) widely used on low-slope buildings and homes in the United States as well as worldwide. Its two primary ingredients, ethylene, and propylene are derived from oil and natural gas.
Homeowners with a flat roof contact us with tons of questions. When they ask about re-roofing the flat roof, many times they are thrilled to learn how effective EPDM is, and how affordable the installation and repair process is. The best part, EPDM roofs are virtually waterproof and are even fireproof!
