Do You Need Help Evaluating Your Rubber Roof?

You probably selected an EPDM or rubber roofing material for your building for its low maintenance design, flexibility, and durability. Yet, despite the obvious advantages of EPDM and rubber roofing, 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 premature breakdown, loss in flexibility, and eventually roof tears, punctures and tenting. 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.

The white, reflective properties of Conklin’s coating system reflect up to 80% of the sun’s UV rays, resulting in significant energy savings. Your roof will remain at ambient temperatures during hot, sunny days which will keep your building cooler and put less strain on your cooling equipment.

  • Significant Cost Savings

Conklin’s EPDM and rubber roof coating offer seamless protection against leaks, providing decades of protection with one simple application. Although water damage might be hard to notice at first, it can lead to serious damage that can be time-consuming and expensive to correct.

  • Lower Maintenance Costs

Superior protection means you’ll avoid patching your EPDM or rubber roof, significantly reducing normal maintenance costs. And since your cooling equipment won’t have to work as hard to keep your building at a comfortable temperature, you’ll save on equipment maintenance too!

  • No Demolition & Disposal Fees

Replacing your roof involves time and labor costs to tear off the existing roof, along with disposal fees at a local landfill. Coating your roof is a viable alternative, saving you money on these expensive fees as well as keeping roofing materials out of landfills.
