Rubber Roofing Replacement
Some building owners choose to replace their rubber roof routinely, while others want to see how much use they can get out of theirs. We recommend replacing a rubber roof every 30 - 40 years to avoid serious issues that may affect the rest of your building. If you wait beyond this time, you risk damage to the rest of your building. These are a few signs not to ignore if you are considering a rubber roof replacement:
Pools of water - Because EDPM roofing is a type of flat roofing, when it ages, it has a tendency to collect puddles of water. When these puddles remain on the roof for over 48 hours, that is typically when you can consider it a problem. This puts a lot of strain on the roof and can cause leaks.
Tears along the seams - If you’re experiencing this issue, then you may simply need a repair. However, if there is extensive damage, more tears will probably show up shortly after you get the first tears repaired, and it’s usually a sign your roofing is on its last leg.
- Bubbling, blistering, or cracking - This is a sign that weather has affected the integrity of the material, and it is no longer reliable.

Below are a few of the top questions our commercial rubber roofers get asked about EPDM roofing.
How Long Will Rubber Roofing Last?
A rubber roof can last up to 50 years, although we recommend replacing it every 30 - 40 years for the best possible results.
Do Rubber Roofs Need Maintenance?
Rubber roofs do require some maintenance to keep them in good condition. This regular maintenance will prevent you from encountering much larger and more expensive problems in the future. These types of roofs should be cleaned a few times a year and inspected for damage.
What is the Difference Between an EPDM Roof and a TPO Roof?
TPO is another type of synthetic commercial roof. JP Carroll also offers TPO roof installations if this is something that fits your needs better. TPO tends to be better at reflecting heat radiation and resisting mold growth and punctures. Some people may also prefer the appearance of TPO roofs. However, they are not quite as durable over time as EPDM roofing. EPDM is definitely what most people would consider to be the tried and true type of commercial roofing.
