EPDM is an extremely durable synthetic rubber roofing membrane (ethylene propylene diene terpolymer) widely used in low-slope buildings in the United States. With Conklin’s EPDM coating system, an innovative roof recoating systems, you can actually extend the life of your existing EPDM or Modified Bitumen roofing system and save on energy costs at the same time. 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.
Possibly avoid the expensive tear-off and haul away of your existing roof and the tremendous workplace disruption it causes. 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 suns heat rays, cooling your roof and building naturally so you spend up to 30% less on air conditioning. Possibly qualify for new federal tax credits and/or rebates earmarked for energy efficient projects.
Today there are millions of square feet of heavy, black BUR and Mod Bit roofs in serious decline due to age and the effects of thermal
expansion. By applying one of Conklin’s lightweight, white, reflective EPDM coatings directly on top of their existing substrates, building owners can save substantial time and money.
Elastomeric Roof Coatings:
You can use Elastomeric Roof Coatings to stop your roof from leaking and restore it. Thanks to their waterproofing qualities, these roof coatings absorb the harmful UV rays of the sun and slow down the roof damage. Also called the “cool roof” coatings, they can also make your commercial roof save a lot more energy. Today, there are many roof coating products available on the market to choose from, so there is no wonder that building owners are having a hard time identifying a good product in a pile of bad ones. That is exactly the reason why we suggest consulting a professional roofing company.
Our Elastomeric Roof Coatings are made to keep the heat in your house in winter and to keep your roof cool in summer. Elastomeric Roof Coatings are not compatible with other roofing substrates. EPDM Roof Coatings waterproof your roof as soon as you apply it to the roofing system. Out of the many available roof coatings, not all are made to be applied over existing roof substrates. This is yet another reason to ask a trained commercial roofing contractor for help.
EPDM Roof Coatings for your roof in particular
EPDM Roof Coatings get rid of roof leaks on virtually any type of roof when installed correctly. By coating your roof, you can extend its life significantly. What the coatings do is keep the roof surface cool while providing protection from harsh external elements.
If you use EPDM Roof Coatings, you effectively reduce the number of scrapped roofing materials in landfills by prolonging the service life of your roof. Elastomeric Roof Coating is a budget-friendly and time-saving roofing coat that can replace the expensive and time-consuming roof mending services. You can ask a certified roofing contractor for advice regarding the best coating fit for your roof, based on your building and roof type. Another factor to consider when choosing a roof coating is its emissivity and reflexivity properties (the more, the better), which reflect the heat from the sun rays so that they don’t affect the roof in strong heat.

Anyone who has doubts whether a white roof coating makes a difference should have been in our building on a 100-degree summer day. Usually, the air conditioner struggles and it gets very hot in the shop. However, with our new white roof from Conklin, our air conditioners were cycling and customers and employees were commenting how nice it was in the building.
Last fall, we put on our thirteenth Conklin roof since 1983 and all are without a leak. This is a multimillion-dollar development: some of the condominiums sell for over $300,000. We can’t afford leaks. I would recommend this system to anyone with a flat roof that doesn’t want to be bothered with leaks.
Conklin’s spray foam roofing system minimized the messy tear-off and the high cost of material disposal at the local landfill. I’m happy with the successful roofing application and love the idea that I have the best and brightest roof in town
