EPDM Rubber Roofing

Commercial Rubber Roof Coating and EPDM Roofs

EPDM is a commonly applied synthetic rubber single-ply roofing product usually used on buildings with low slope roofs. (EPDM is an acronym for Ethylene Propylene Diene Terploymer.)

In most cases, EPDM roofs are fastened to a roof deck with screws and plates. Sometimes, for the purpose of strengthening the roof surface, EPDM rubber roofs are covered with gravel or ballasted rock.

This roofing product is often selected for its convenient repair options. They offer the features of easy maintenance, flexibility and durability, and an ability to easily fit into unusually shaped roofing configurations.

EPDM Roof Issues

Over time, EPDM rubber roofing experience wear-and-tear problems. The biggest problem is that the synthetic rubber’s dark colors instead tend to absorb most of the sun’s rays, leading to degradation of the EPDM’s membrane. As the membrane decomposes, it becomes more susceptible to puncturing. Those are the problems of an EPDM roof summarized in a nutshell

Conklins Rubber Roof Coatings: A Cost Effective EPDM Fix

MDM Roofing uses Conklin rubber roof coating to provide an affordable solution to the problems associated with a degrading EPDM rubber roof.

Conklin rubber roof coatings reflect up to 80-85% of the sun’s energy and UV rays. This not only slows the degradation of the EPDM membrane, but also accounts not only for a huge savings in utility costs.
