Many commercial and industrial buildings in America have EPDM on their building. EPDM is a roofing material made out of synthetic rubber consisting primarily of propylene and ethylene. EPDM is applied in large sheets that are rolled out onto the rooftop and mechanically fastened. Over time, the seams begin to fail causing leaks and other issues to occur. Luckily, you can apply a silicone roof coating system to restore your roof to new, while gaining benefits that will save you thousands of dollars.
1. Seamless Waterproofing
A silicone roof coating is rolled directly onto the EPDM roof membrane with no seams or joints. Seams and joints create water channels which overtime negatively impact the waterproofing capabilities of the EPDM as the sun’s heat causes the seams to fail and allows water to get into the building.
2. Energy Savings
Traditional EPDM is black and not energy efficient. Black roof surfaces retain heat, which then transfers into the building, causing you to use more energy to cool the inside. A silicone roof coating is known for being excellent at reflecting the sun’s heat away from the building and back into the atmosphere, giving you these benefits:
Cooler indoor temperature
Greater comfort for employees and customers
Large reduction in energy usage
HVAC equipment lasts longer
Different colors available
