Low Pitched Roofs Are Best Protected With Rubber
It’s that time of year again. The leaves are falling, night comes quick, and soon snow will be around the corner. As recent New England winters have demonstrated, snow and ice buildup can wreak havoc on low pitch roofs with asphalt shingles, even ice and water shield underlayment products are installed. Low roof pitch keeps snow and ice trapped, causing ice dams. These dams can create leaks in the roof causing unwanted water damage in your house.
EPDM is a rubber membrane material used for flat roof applications, including porches and low pitch dormers. Horch Roofing recommends you equip any roof with a pitch below 3 ½ inches with a EPDM rubber application. By installing EPDM rubber roofing you won't have to worry about leaks or damages interiors again and you can sleep well this winter knowing your roof is safe and sound.
