EPDM Commercial Roofers in Kansas City

EPDM Roofing Experts

Superior flexibility and durability

EPDM, or ethylene propylene diene terpolymer, is a synthetic rubber single-ply roofing membrane. EPDM roofing has stood the test of time and the elements. It’s been field tested for forty years and has come out on top as the commercial roofing choice for building contractors, architects, and commercial roofing experts.

So whether you’re trying to find the right commercial roofing solution for a new building or replacing an old commercial roofing system, contact Lionheart Contracting and talk to one of our specialists about EPDM roofing in Kansas City.

Superior commercial roofing product

This synthesized product is resistant to many environmental factors: UV radiation, hail damage, wind damage, extreme cold, extreme heat and fire, and mold. EPDM can also neutralize thermal shock and cyclical fatigue, two elements that can create stress fractures in roofing material, either through differing temperatures amid the roofing system or repetitive wear and tear on certain parts of the system. In the commercial roofing business, resistance is not futile, but of utmost importance!

EPDM has what it takes to flex with different climatic and temperature conditions, without stressing the material. It also can efficiently absorb moisture, so there are fewer problems with water pooling on a roof. This ability to absorb water also makes EPDM one of the best commercial roofing choices for low-slope commercial roofs.

EPDM is available in black or white. Black EPDM contains an element that converts UV rays into heat, whereas white EPDM is highly reflective, because of the addition of titanium dioxide. We can easily make the choice of black or white EPDM, depending on where you live. Black EPDM will help lower heating costs while white EPDM will help lower cooling costs.

Long Life and Low Maintenance

EPDM, both durable and well-made, has a long life as a commercial roofing system. It’s easy to repair, even as it ages. With minimal maintenance, an EPDM commercial roofing system will keep its integrity and flexibility for decades to come. Forty years of field tests have shown that EPDM can have a potential life expectancy of, at least, forty to fifty years. It’s no wonder why EPDM roofing in Kansas City is so popular.

Green Building Pluses

EPDM is recyclable and, therefore, less of a burden on landfills. EPDMs production and processing are environmentally friendly. In commercial roofing, one way to measure environmental impact is determining the materials embodied energy number. Embodied energy is the total energy required for the extraction, processing, manufacture, and delivery of building materials to the building site. Energy consumption produces CO2, which contributes to greenhouse gas emissions, so embodied energy is considered an indicator of the overall environmental impact of building materials and systems.

Frequently asked questions

How often should I have my commercial roof inspected?2024-01-04T08:55:17+00:00

As best practice, we recommend scheduling a roof inspection seasonally to ensure everything is in proper working order. If you suspect damage after a large storm or hail, you may need to schedule extra inspections. It is important to contact licensed roofing professionals to inspect your roof rather than attempting to do it yourself – we know what to look for and always take the appropriate safety precautions when accessing a commercial roof.

How long does it take to install a new roof?2024-01-04T08:54:34+00:00

The length of your commercial roof install depends on the size and type of roof you are having installed. When we schedule your roof for replacement, our roofing experts will give you an accurate estimate of how long it will take. We take care to provide each job with the manpower, skill, and equipment to complete your roof in a timely manner. Our crews do a very thorough clean-up at the end of each day to minimize any inconvenience caused by your roof replacement.

Will my new roof come with a warranty?2024-01-04T08:53:43+00:00

When you install a new commercial roof with Lionheart Contracting, you will have a variety of warranties to choose from.

Can I put a new roof on without removing the old one?2024-01-04T08:52:58+00:00

Several factors may allow us to place a new roof over the existing one. Local and national building codes outline roofing requirements that we must follow, however. If the law allows you two roofing systems, we must carefully consider the current structural condition, underlying insulation, deck conditions, and moisture saturation to determine if removal of the existing roof will be more cost effective in the long run. If your existing roof is damaged, saturated, or unstable, we will need to strip the existing roof to install a new roof.

Can I repair my roof instead of replacing it?2024-01-04T08:52:24+00:00

A damaged roof does not necessarily require a total replacement. When we find damage, we will consider the type of roofing material, the age of the roof, and the extent of damage to give you the best options available. Besides roof replacement, our professionals may include options for commercial roof repair or roof restoration.

How much does it cost to replace a roof?2024-01-04T08:51:54+00:00

No two buildings are exactly alike, and the cost of commercial roof replacement depends on several factors. Some of these factors include: – The size of the roof – Roof access – Materials required – Structural damage repairs required before installation – And more. The most important thing to keep in mind is choosing a contractor you trust with a record of superior service. After an inspection and consultation with one of Lionheart’s roofing specialists, you will receive estimates for your various options for roof replacement.
