EPDM Roofing System​

As a reputable company in the area, your roof is something we think about all year long. For many of us, our roofs are the only protection our loved ones have against Mother Nature. We are dedicated to the success of your roof, and we know that it all comes down to the type of roofing system we choose. One of the things that we do is the EPDM Commercial Roof Coating for the roof system.

What does EPDM mean?​

EPDM stands for Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer – a synthetic rubber-based roofing membrane used in roofing applications generally. It is best known for being a single -roofing, meaning it has one layer of material.

EPDM roofing systems are a type of elastomeric roofing system. Elastomeric roofing systems are composed of rigid, high-density polyethene or polyvinyl chloride. These components are then reinforced with fiberglass mats or woven glass fabrics to form a solid, reliable, and cost-effective commercial roofing system. This roofing system is popular among low-slope buildings.

Why Choose EPDM Commercial Roofing System?​

There are many advantages of the EPDM Commercial Roof System. One of the significant advantages is its resistance to tear and puncture. The commercial roof system is made up of EPDM roof membrane material. It is better than the rubber and asphalt membrane. Unlike other kinds of roof covering systems, it is also available in large rolls. It is popular because of its versatility and excellent characteristics, such as resistance to cracking, tearing, and aging. In addition to this time-tested formula, it has been re-engineered and enhanced to include additional performance benefits, such as resistance to ultraviolet light degradation and improved cold-crack performance. Furthermore, they are re-usable when re-roofing, and their flexibility allows them to mold into the structure of the building fluidly.

What Else There is To Know?​

EPDM Commercial Roofing System is arguably one of the best choices for a commercial roofing system. Their only weaknesses are often primarily insignificant and are mainly attributed to poor installation. The installation process demands a clean and dry condition to seal the seams correctly. Because of its inherent material, it may have a chemical reaction with asphalt-derived materials containing petroleum- and can result in puncture because of insufficient adhesive healing.

How to Maintain EPDM​

EPDM, when installed properly, can last between two-three decades before its membrane starts to show weakness, expand and contract, resulting in membrane holes. Conklin’s Advanced Coating system’s best waterproofing features can add years to the usability of your EPDM Commercial Roof and help save energy costs because of its ‘cool roof’ feature. By filling in all holes with a durable coating, you can say goodbye to leaks for a long time. Because the layer is white, the roof will reflect sunlight instead of expanding and contracting, resulting in a “cool roof” effect, thus reducing your AC bills.
