Certified EPDM Firestone Rubber Roofing Installer
Introduction: As a trusted general contractor serving Cambridge, Massachusetts, WAZE Development understands the importance of high-quality roofing systems for commercial properties. In our previous blog posts, we’ve discussed the benefits of TPO roofing. Today, we shift our focus to EPDM Firestone Rubber Roofing, another excellent choice for your commercial roofing needs.
What is EPDM Roofing?
Ethylene Propylene Diene Terpolymer, commonly known as EPDM, is a synthetic rubber roofing membrane that has gained immense popularity in the commercial roofing industry. EPDM is a versatile and cost-effective solution known for its outstanding durability, weather resistance, and longevity.
Features and Benefits of EPDM Roofing
- Weather Resistance: EPDM roofing systems are designed to withstand extreme weather conditions, including rain, hail, and UV exposure. They are known for their excellent resistance to temperature fluctuations and can adapt to Cambridge’s ever-changing climate.
- Durability: EPDM is engineered to last. Its exceptional durability ensures that your investment will protect your commercial property for many years to come, making it a cost-effective roofing solution.
- Low Maintenance: EPDM roofing requires minimal maintenance, reducing the long-term cost of ownership. Regular inspections and minimal repairs will keep your EPDM roof in top shape.
- Energy Efficiency: EPDM’s reflective properties can help reduce energy costs. By reflecting sunlight and heat, it can help keep your building cooler during the summer months, ultimately lowering your air conditioning expenses.
- Versatility: EPDM can be applied to various types of roofing structures, including flat and low-slope roofs, making it a versatile choice for commercial properties.
The Importance of Maintaining Your Roof
Neglecting your commercial roof can lead to costly problems down the road. Regular maintenance and inspections can extend the lifespan of your EPDM roof and help you avoid unexpected expenses. WAZE Development offers professional roofing maintenance services to keep your investment in optimal condition.
Adding Value to Your Property
Investing in a high-quality EPDM roofing system not only protects your property but also adds value to it. An attractive and well-maintained roof can enhance the overall aesthetics of your commercial building, making it more appealing to potential tenants or buyers.

This is the first review we have written. Being a business owners we have mixed feeling about reviews. When a company does superior work we just felt it necessary to write one. Tahgi and Jeremy roofed our home. It was framed incorrectly 22 years ago by another contractor. Tahgi fixed the framing, re-plywood and zip boarded the entire roof. They provided us with a reasonable price and top notch craftsmanship. Jeremy is a rare find and an extremely hard working and efficient craftsman. Tahgi and Jeremy make the perfect team. The finished product looks excellent start to finish.
ESTIMATING EDPM ROOFING COSTS
Waze will quote you the best price possible considering the following:
- The existing roof’s condition
- Access to roof and property
- The size of your roof
- Insulation choice
- Membrane choice
- Roof penetrations
- Travel distance
Lifespan of EPDM Roofing: EPDM roofs can have a lifespan of up to 30 years or more when properly installed and maintained. However, the actual lifespan can vary depending on factors such as climate, installation quality, and maintenance.
Diverse Insulation Options with EPDM: EPDM roofing systems allow for various insulation options. The choice of insulation materials and methods depends on the specific requirements and budget of the project.
Class A Fire Rating for EPDM: EPDM membranes can achieve a Class A fire resistance rating if they are manufactured with fire-retardant chemicals. However, achieving this rating may depend on the specific product and manufacturer. It’s essential to verify with the manufacturer that the EPDM product you choose meets these criteria.
Energy Efficiency and Cost Savings: EPDM roofing can provide energy efficiency benefits due to its reflective properties. White EPDM roofs, in particular, are known for their ability to reflect UV rays and heat, potentially reducing cooling costs. Actual energy savings may vary depending on factors such as local climate and the building’s HVAC system.
To ensure the accuracy of these claims, it’s advisable to consult with reputable roofing professionals and manufacturers who can provide detailed information about the specific EPDM roofing products they offer and their performance characteristics. Additionally, it’s essential to have a professional installation and maintenance plan in place to maximize the benefits of your roofing system.
Ease of Repairing a RUBBER roof:
- If caught early, small tears and seam separations can be mended and seams can be reinforced. Fixing any trouble spots early will extend the life of your roof.
- EDPM roofing will last approximately 15-20 years and up to 30 years if well maintained.
