When it comes to roofing, there are several types of attachment methods. Commercial buildings have two types of typical roofing. One is mechanically attached and the second is fully adhered. EPDM roofs are in the second type. Two alternate methods with consequences to either choice so it is important to make sure you choose the one that is right for your particular roofing situation.
Mechanically attached roof
They are popular because of low cost and fast application. People like them for instant installation. Metal deck, then a layer of insulation, then the roof the laid down roll membrane is driven directly through screws. Typically, the drilled screws at the edge of the membrane roll covered. A watertight seal is then created by heat-welding the membranes together with a hot-air gun. Its weight is its strength but sometimes weaken the roof. Mechanically adhered roofs dominate the market for a reason-but fully adhered roofs are still popular for buildings in certain locations with specific needs.
Fully Adhered Roofs
That is fully adhered. They are glued directly to the insulation below and work excellent against weather, water and storm or hailing. They are light weight. Builders choose fully adhered roofs largely because of the perception that they're more resistant to leaks. Water cannot travel through membrane provide higher Factory Mutual wind-uplift ratings. EPDM Roofers has introduced a new era in roofing through Fully Adhered Roofs. The long life of roof depends on this type and it gives all positive aspect to roofing so it is being prefer everywhere now.
New construction most of the flat roof roofing systems specified is fully-adhered EPDM because of its reliability. It is light weight so does not have any extra burden on the roof. It lasts long and works superb.
