EPDM vs TPO Debate

From Rubber News:

“Roofs are based on a variety of factors,” said Ellen Thorp, associate executive director of the ERA. “To dictate one of those variables without an intimate understanding of that building's location, usage or number of occupants is short-sighted. All of those things go into what kind of a roof to put on there. A roof designer is the best person to help make those decisions.”
