EPDM can be fully adhered to a roof, mechanically attached, or installed with a ballast. With each installation method, the seams of the EPDM rubber are sealed with either specially formulated tape or a liquid adhesive. A fully adhered roofing system will be glued in place along the whole surface of the roofing membrane. This is the most secure and most expensive installation method for most flat, single-ply roofing systems. A mechanically attached roofing system employs fasteners or special screws to hold the material to the roofing deck. Ballasted roofing systems are held in place with a large, secure layer on top of the single-ply membrane. Common ballasts include river rock or concrete lain uniformly across the entire roof.
White EPDM combines the benefits of traditional EPDM roofing systems with an environmentally friendly, highly reflective surface which will help reduce energy bills each month while keeping your building safe from the elements. Titanium dioxide is the most common additive found in white EPDM, giving it a reflective, UV resistant surface in addition to all the benefits of EPDM material, including the renowned durability and flexibility for which EPDM is so highly sought. EPDM is effective at reducing air-conditioning costs without sacrificing the durability of the roof overall, and since white is employed specifically for its reflective properties, it is installed with a fully-adhered or mechanically attached method. Black EPDM is made with carbon to help absorb the heat. Particularly effective in colder climates, black EPDM is a time-tested material that will protect your building for decades.
