While torch-on roofing remains a good choice for many businesses in Vancouver, EPDM roofing is equally effective and very much a star performer. In many ways, EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer) is a better fit for commercial and strata properties with flat and low-slope roofs. Allow Absolute Roof Solutions to show you how EPDM membrane roofing is installed in a variety of ways that do not involve hazardous tools and substances.
EPDM roofing has been used in Vancouver for over 40 years. It is truly time-tested and holds its head high alongside other roofing solutions, for many reasons.
When choosing the right roofing material, you need to consider what the material consists of, how long it takes to install, and its longevity. EPDM roofing is made out of rubber materials that are durable and tough. At its core, EPDM is a membrane made from ethylene and propylene synthetics and fastened to a roof simply and quickly in a variety of ways. After mechanically fastening it or adhering it to a roof, it is spliced and sealed to keep all water and other elements out. It can be applied in any temperatures year-round and repairs are a snap. Not that there need to be many repairs.
EPDM is also a very sustainable solution.

Environmentally speaking, EPDM roofing may be Vancouver’s most desirable material. That’s because over the course of its life, it has the least overall impact. It is very much carbon neutral because the EPDM roofing used in Vancouver is made from recycled materials. The materials are resistant to ultraviolet rays, reflecting and/or absorbing them easily. EPDM doesn’t begin to degrade or breakdown until at least twenty years after being applied.
Best of all, EPDM is fully recyclable.
Longevity in Harsh Weather
With Greater Vancouver’s consistent rain and dampness, roofs have difficulty drying out and can develop mould, mildew, algae and moss. Then along come wind, snow, and long hours of summer sun to add to the challenges. Where many other roofing materials decay and rot, EPDM handles it all easily and keeps its integrity. If you choose EPDM roofing for your Vancouver property, there are many advantages:
- 20+ year lifespan.
- Durable and flexible.
- Super lightweight.
- Severe weather tested.
- Little maintenance required.
- Resistant to rot, decay, shrinking and cracking.
- Environmentally friendly. Fully recyclable.
- Energy saving.
- Easy to install all year.
- Easily repaired.
