Benefits of EPDM Rubber Over Your Roof's Shingles

By Horch Roofing | Jul 30, 2014

EPDM is a rubber membrane material used for flat roof applications, including porches and low pitch dormers. As recent Maine winters have demonstrated, snow and ice buildup can wreak havoc on low pitch roofs with asphalt shingles, even when ice and water shield underlayment products are installed. Low roof pitch keeps snow and ice trapped, causing ice dams. Horch Roofing recommends EPDM rubber application below a 3/12 pitch. By installing EPDM rubber roofing you won’t have to worry about leaks or damages to your low pitch roof again.
