The BULLDOG/DUREX EPDM Restoration System provides a high-performance monolithic coating to age EPDM single ply membranes. This coating is able to reinforce all the necessary seams and add years to the roof’s life span. This durable and low-maintenance system has several long-term benefits, including energy savings and lower life cycle costs. To learn more about the EPDM Restoration System, read on!
There are several benefits to a EPDM restoration system, including its cost-effectiveness and environmental sustainability. This material is considered environmentally friendly because of its low embodied energy and low life cycle costs. EPDM can be recycled into other roofing products, including shingles, tiles, and walkways. It also has a low VOC content. In addition, it is made from recycled rubber products, which reduces its environmental footprint.
The cost of restoring an EPDM roof varies according to its size. Generally, larger EPDM flat roofs shrink over time and can pull away from flashing, drains, and corners. This will lead to leaks. To repair a roof like this, you must fill in the gaps and spaces. This process costs anywhere from $5.50 to $7.75 per square foot, depending on the size of the roof.
If you have a roof that is subjected to intense sun rays, you may want to consider adding a membrane coating. These coatings provide excellent UV resistance and can help keep your home at a cooler temperature. In addition, they are also environmentally friendly, as they use less fossil fuels in their production. An EPDM restoration system can help you stay comfortable and cool in any season, and the Conklin membrane coating system is highly durable and reliable, providing years of guaranteed waterproof protection.
The EPDM restoration system will protect your roof from the damaging effects of the sun’s rays. The material is highly UV resistant and will not break down even with years of exposure to the sun. Another benefit is that you won’t have to worry about fading due to the sun’s UV rays. Because of this, you can use the EPDM restoration system on roofs that have a garden on them. However, remember that an EPDM restoration system will require regular maintenance and extra coatings to keep it looking its best.
EPDM membranes have excellent thermal shock and abrasion resistance, but they also have flexibility at low temperatures. Xenon arc exposure, a method for testing the effectiveness of EPDM membranes, has proven that black nonreinforced EPDM can withstand 41,580 kJ/m2 without cracking, crazing, or other visible signs of degradation.
One of the most important considerations when selecting an EPDM roof for your home is the reflectivity of the EPDM membrane. Dark roofs are more susceptible to heat transfer and can quickly reach dangerous temperatures in summer months. The HVAC unit will work overtime to keep the building cool. An EPDM restoration system can prevent this from happening and extend the service life of your existing EPDM roof. Its white finish coat can be applied in any color, but most building owners choose a white finish coating to increase the reflectivity. The benefits of this roofing system include reducing energy costs and preventing leaks.
EPDM membranes have low environmental impact and are easy to repair. In addition to being easy to patch, the manufacturing process has minimal impact on the environment. Furthermore, EPDM is 100% recyclable. However, EPDM is susceptible to sudden damage, such as hail, wind-driven debris, and foot traffic. It also experiences significant shrinkage, which can result in bridging and separation around parapet walls and penetrations.
One of the most common causes of failed EPDM repairs is improper cleaning. Carbon black migrates from EPDM membranes over time. Even a clean EPDM membrane may still have a layer of soot-like material on its surface. To properly prepare the membrane for an EPDM patch, first wash the entire area with warm, soapy water. Next, rinse the area with clear water and dry with a clean cotton rag.
The EPDM restoration system is an ideal choice for flat buildings. It is affordable and offers superior UV and weather resistance. When installed correctly, this type of roofing material can last up to 50 years! It is recommended to work with a roofing contractor to determine the best solution for your roof. Roofing contractors will recommend the best approach based on your specific needs and budget. For example, installing a silicone roof repair kit costs between $2 and $4. Compared to complete roof replacement, this method is much less expensive and can save you a lot of time and money.
