EPDM (Ehtylene Propylene Diene Monomer) and TPO (Thermoplasitc Polyolefin) are two of the most popular flat roof membranes today. Both membranes are good choices for your flat roof. Here are some strengths and weaknesses of each:

+ Around for over 40 years
+ Multiple installation methods
+ Multiple thickness options
+ Black roofs absorb heat during winter and keeps heating costs down
– Black roofs reach extreme temperatures in summer
– Seams are glued together
– Less resistant to chemicals

+ Seams are heat welded
+ White is most common color, but available in different colors
+ Cool roof
+ Multiple thickness options
– Slippery when wet
– Newer technology: not all TPO products use same formula
