The E in EPDM refers to Ethylene, P refers to Propylene, D refers to Diene, and M refers to its classification.

The properties of natural rubber are modified to serve the purpose of synthetic rubber — synthetic rubber has improved weather resistance qualities as a result.


Expect to pay between $5.50 and $9.50 per square foot to install EPDM membrane on a typical flat roof, or about $8,250 to $14,250 for a 15 square (1,500 square feet) flat roof.

The cost may be higher or lower depending on the tear-off and removal cost of the existing roof, insulation layers, and the number of penetrations on your flat roof.
