Improving the EPDM Rubber Roof Membrane

EPDM or the rubber roofing membrane is a great roofing material as it boasts low maintenance needs and flexibility. However, over time, you’ll likely experience some of its weaknesses as well. For example, the black rubber or synthetic fiber in these roofs absorb a great deal of the sun’s heat and UV rays resulting in a premature breakdown, loss in flexibility, roof tears, and punctures. With these punctures and tears, moisture is allowed in and causes deterioration in the surface underneath. This can lead to damage, mold, and eventually leaks. In addition, the black surface can reach temperatures exceeding 150 degrees in the hot summer months adversely impacting your cooling costs. Activate roof coating is specifically designed to address these issues in rubber roof membranes.
