2.01 EPDM Roofing Membrane: In this section, a roofing contractor would have to provide all information in regards to the type of roofing material to be used.  Because the builder is requesting an EPDM (rubber) roof, the membrane specified would have to include the manufacturer information.  As an example, we will say that the manufacturer to be used is Firestone Building Products™. Firestone’s EPDM membrane is trademarked as their Rubbergard™ series.  The thickness of the membrane required in this example is .060 or 60 mils.  The color of EPDM is most often black. The builder would provide information pertaining to other approved manufacturers, if any, in this section.
