An EPDM roof is primarily designed for flat or low-slope roofing structures.
EPDM Rubber Roofing
While traditional shingles or rolled roofing may not perform well on flat roofs, EPDM rubber roofing is bonded at the seams with heat to create a continuous barrier. This allows EPDM roofing to keep water from penetrating the roof structure and leaking into the commercial building which can lead to expensive and time-consuming repairs. EPDM rubber roofing also helps to protect commercial buildings against wind and other exterior elements.
Benefits of EPDM Roofing Material
An EPDM coating system is an effective and economical alternative to a complete tear. Conklin’s elastomeric roof coatings provide cost-effective roof restoration for approved single-ply substrates, resulting in improved energy savings and years of new life for an old roof! Adding a white, energy efficient, lightweight coating on top of your current black EPDM roof is the smart choice for a number of reasons.
- Avoid the expensive tear-off and haul away costs and workplace disruption that traditional replacements cause.
- Potentially save enough in cooling costs to pay for your recoat within just 7 years! Our Energy-Star rated white top coats reflect up to 85% of the sun’s heat rays, cooling your roof and building naturally so you spend up to 30% less on air conditioning and get more life out of your units.
- Possibly qualify for new federal tax credits and/or rebates earmarked for energy efficient projects.
With Conklin’s innovative rubber roofing material, you can actually extend the life of your existing EPDM or Modified Bitumen roofing system and save on energy costs at the same time.
