WHAT IS EPDM?
EPDM is a rubber sheet that is applied to the roof. There is no heat involved in the installation, which makes it very safe. Any joins that need to be made for irregular shaped roofs, are as waterproof as the rubber sheet itself. It can be covered with rounded stones, for a roof, flagstones for a pathway, or decking for a rooftop garden.
