Flat Roofing Contractors
A flat roof may not be the popular choice for many homeowners because their home styles may not look good with this type of roofing. However, new modernist and minimalist designs of homes may adopt a flat roof on their architectural plans. Furthermore, because of the minimal slope and flat surface of the roofs, it is simpler to access things such as rain gutters, sidings, and others. Therefore, maintenance is performed easily, and you can personally go up there to see what is wrong with your house roof. Moreover, because there is no need of shingles and other decorative materials on the flat surface, construction cost is reduced significantly, and fewer complications while repairing a flat surface also reduces the cost.
Therefore, when you require a flat roofing contractor for your new home or commercial building, you can count on Sundown Exteriors to design and build your flat roof.

We Use EPDM Rubber
EPDM (ethylene propylene diene terpolymer - M-type) is a highly durable synthetic rubber roofing membrane widely used in low-slope or flat roof buildings. Its two primary ingredients, ethylene and propylene, are derived from oil and natural gas. The M in the initial refers to its classification in ASTM standard D-1418, where the M class includes rubbers having a saturated chain of the polymethylene type. In layman's language, this means that the materials is highly tough because of its composition. For example, the main properties of EPDM are its outstanding heat, ozone, and weather resistance. The resistance to polar substances and steam are also good. It has excellent electrical insulating properties and good resistance to ketones, acids, and alkalis.
This material has been the appealing choice of the low-slope commercial roofing industry for decades. It continues to be a top choice of architects, roof consultants, and roofing contractors for both new construction and replacement roofing projects. Studies have shown EPDM to have the roofing industry's longest average service life. Furthermore, EPDM has superior overall system performance because of its cyclical membrane fatigue resistance, proven hail resistance, flexibility in low temperatures, superior resistance to extreme heat and fire, thermal shock durability, and ultraviolet radiation resistance. Lastly, EPDM's high resistance to wind damage has also proven to be an increasingly desirable attribute.
