The 3 EPDM Roofing Waterproofing Systems
Adhered EPDM Roofing System
The EPDM is adhered directly to the substrate using a bonding adhesive that is specifically formulated to bond the single-ply membrane to just about any surface.
With 50+ years of real-world testing, there is no other product that can protect your home like Carlisle EPDM.Unlike our competitors with membranes of only 1.2m – 2m wide, our large 9m x 30m panels can waterproof many homes with zero or very few seams. Fewer seams = fewer pooling areas = longer lifespan = no leaks.
Inverted EPDM Roofing System
This is the preferred roofing system especially designed for high-traffic roofs.
It consists of a layer of loose laid single-ply EPDM with a insulation board covered by a geotextile and then a ballast added to hold the whole system down. This system is quick to install and can be retro fitted to existing buildings that can accommodate the load.
The inverted system makes the building super energy efficient in both hot and cold climates.
Ballasted EPDM Roofing System
Because of its fast installation and insulation properties, ballasted systems are an extremely economical choice.
The EPDM membrane is loose laid on the substrate with a geotextile for added protection, and then a ballast consisting of stone or pavers is used to hold the membrane in place.
The ballast helps to shield the membrane from the elements, thus extending the life of the membrane.
