It’s no secret that a good roof is essential to any structure, especially in areas that experience harsh weather conditions. Roofing has evolved quite a bit over the years, and now there’s a variety of roofing materials to choose from. Rubber roofing is one of the oldest types of roofing, but there’s a reason why it remains one of the most popular choices among customers and contractors alike.

What is Rubber Roofing?

Rubber roofing is a type of roofing that comes in rolls and covers a flat roof’s surface. Rubber roofing is made of a combination of recycled materials mixed with slate dust and sawdust. The roofing rolls are overlapped to create a seamless surface of protection over the roof.

The Benefits of Rubber Roofing

Rubber roofing has maintained popularity over the years due to its affordability and durability. Rubber roofing is one of the cheapest roofing materials you can buy, and the installation is very affordable too. A rubber roof can withstand rain, hail, cold temperatures, and high winds. It won’t blow away, crack, or split like traditional shingles under those conditions. If rubber roofing is damaged, repairs are easy and affordable too! The most common cause of damage to rubber roofing is walking on the roof without the right type of shoes and falling branches puncturing the surface. As long as you keep an eye out for damage and get repairs done ASAP, your rubber roofing will have a long lifespan and offer top-notch protection.

Choosing a Rubber Roof Installation Servicer

Installing rubber roofing requires precision and attention to detail to get it right the first time. Attempting to install rubber roofing yourself could impact the building’s integrity if water gets under the roof as a result of poor installation. Then you’ll end up hiring a professional to fix your mistake anyways, so why not just hire them to begin with and save yourself the trouble? It would help if you always chose someone who is experienced at installing rubber roofing and licensed and insured.
