What Are The Best EPDM Roofing Tiles?

By Lisa Hobbie 2021

EPDM roofing, or ethylene propylene diene monomer roofing, is a great choice for those looking for a roofing solution that’s durable and resistant to heat, light and ozone.

EPDM roofing is made from ethylene and propylene, which are derived from natural gas and oil. The following four EPDM roofing options at Greatmats are among the best:
  1. Rubber Tile Blue Sky Outdoor Interlocking Tile - 2.25 Inch 90/10 EPDM
  2. Sterling Roof Top Tile 2 Inch Gray
  3. Blue Sky Outdoor Interlocking Tile - 2.25 Inch 50/50 EPDM
  4. Blue Sky Interlocking Deck Tile 1.5 Inch 50/50

These roof tiles are top notch and suitable for multiple applications.

Blue Sky Outdoor Interlocking Tile - 2.25 Inch 90/10 EPDM is among the best roof paver products available anywhere in terms of style and color. It offers a 4 foot fall height rating and an underside design that allows air and water flow.

This roofing is made from recycled rubber buffings or crumb rubber granules from reground automotive tires. It offers a full, glue down installation process with ADA compliant border and corner edging available, and it is suitable for roof deck tops, playground surfaces, and more.

These tiles are high performing, and they resist fading, molding, and the growth of mildew. Manufacturers make these using the highest quality materials, resulting in a product with the best locking design technology for high traffic areas.

Each of these tiles will cost about $48, which offers 4 square feet of coverage.



Blue Sky EPDM roofing tiles also come in the form of the Outdoor Interlocking Tile - 2.25 Inch 50/50 EPDM option with many of the same features. It’s easy to install and maintain over time, and it offers a high traction, non-slip surface when it is wet or dry.



Sterling Roof Top Tile 2 Inch is a commercial grade product that is designed to promote superior water drainage under the tiles. It is an interlocking rubber tile product with border edging that is eco-friendly and LEED point contributing.

It’s a suitable solution for outdoor flooring, roofing, decking, and more. Each tile is about $40, which also offers 4 square feet of coverage.

There is also the Blue Sky Interlocking Deck Tile 1.5 Inch 50/50, which is essentially the same - except for that it is 1.5 inch thick instead of 2.25 inch thick, offering a cost savings of about $1 per tile.
