America’s Best EPDM / Mod-Bit Coating System

What is an EPDM Roofing System?

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 system, 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.

Is an EPDM Roof Worth It? An EPDM Roofing System Can:

  • 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 seven years!
    Our Energy-Star-rated white top coats reflect up to 85% of the sun’s heat rays, cooling
    your 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.

What Are the Disadvantages of EPDM Roofing?

EPDM can be vulnerable to high temperatures, resulting in shrinking, cracking, and/or stretching if not properly cared for. They’re also susceptible to ponding water if installed poorly,
leading to rot and mold growth.

While one of the more affordable options for flat roofing systems, EPDM can be quite expensive if you hire an inexperienced contractor who cannot install it correctly. This can lead to a compromised membrane that is easily punctured and damaged, leading to costlier repairs
down the line!

When It Comes to Your Commercial Building, the Roof Is One of Its Most Fundamental Pieces.

It is important that you look after your commercial property. How do you do it? Easy – have a roofing contractor that is a professional check it regularly (we recommend twice a year). It is best to make regular inspection a habit to ensure proper functioning and to minimize problems – you can double your roof’s lifetime that way. There is a reason why it is advised to get your
roof inspected at least twice a year: once when the cold weather is over, once after the hot period, and after any major weather event.

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 quality roof coating systems available on the market to choose from, so there is no wonder that building owners have 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 Roofing for Your Roof in Particular

EPDM gets 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 rubber roofing, 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 expensive and time-consuming roof mending services. You can ask a certified roofing contractor for advice regarding the best coating fit for your EPDM 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 EPDM roof in strong heat.

Low Maintenance Roofing

EPDM roofing has given way to new developments and advancements in the roofing industry. Whenever there is a discussion about roof leaks and getting rid of them, EPDM membranes come to mind first. They have proven to be the best leaking roof solution for all types of roofs, and a worthwhile competitor has yet to arrive.

Looking for an EPDM Roofing Contractor?

Hiring a roofing company to install or repair your roof is certainly a big investment! Many roofers claim to offer the best advice and service there is, but few of them can put their money where their mouth is.
