McHenry Roofing is offering EPDM rubber roofing services to homeowners and commercial property owners in Baltimore and nearby areas.
EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer) is specially formulated rubber that offers superior durability when used as a roofing material. It is available in the form of a single-ply rolled membrane that can be installed with a cold-applied adhesive and ballasted using coarser aggregates. EPDM systems can be combined with multiple built-up layers such as modified bitumen membranes to increase their performance in harsh weather conditions.
EPDM rubber membranes are commonly used in flat roofing applications because of their durability, flexibility, and ease of installation. They are also highly resistant to water and weathering, making them a popular choice for both commercial and residential roofing projects.
There are three main types of EPDM rubber membranes. Standard EPDM is the most common type of EPDM rubber membrane and is made from ethylene and propylene. It comes in black and is available in various thicknesses. Standard EPDM is highly resistant to UV radiation, ozone, and weathering, making it an ideal choice for roofing applications.
Reinforced EPDM has a layer of reinforcing material, such as polyester or fiberglass, embedded within it. The reinforcing layer adds strength and durability to the membrane, making it more resistant to tears and punctures. Reinforced EPDM is often used in areas with high foot traffic or in applications where the membrane will be exposed to significant stress.
Fire-Retardant EPDM is created for buildings where the local codes mandate the property to use fire-retardant materials. This EPDM material is treated with fire-retardant chemicals to make it less flammable. It is mostly found installed on commercial or industrial buildings and is available in both standard and reinforced versions.
The spokesperson for McHenry Roofing talks about the EPDM roofing options available to Baltimore homeowners by saying, “EPDM rubber membrane installation is particularly well suited for flat or low slope roofs, especially by business owners who care about durability and maintenance costs more than aesthetics. They are more expensive than traditional roofing materials. However, the peace of mind you get knowing that your EPDM roof is going to last you for decades with minimal repairs overshadows the benefits offered by other types of roofing. McHenry Roofing is the flat roof installer of choice in Baltimore. We have helped thousands of residential and commercial clients fortify their property against the cold and humid climate in Maryland.”

The asphalt shingles are fantastic and I get compliments from my neighbors. They tried to clean up after themselves and ensure that nothing was left in my yard. They did me a favor by removing and disposing of my old cable dish so that I did not have to go to the landfill. That was a big help to me. I will suggest McHenry Roofing to my family and friends.”
