The liquid coating is applied to low-slope roofs much like standard paint, but offers incredible benefits. Extend the life of your roofing system and ensure a sustainable defense severe weather with this cost-effective procedure. Some of the many benefits of  elastomeric roof coatings include:
    • Less maintenance & easy repairs – Following the initial application, elastomeric roof coating can be touched up to resolve damage to specific spots without scraping or teardown. The process is quick and easy.
    • Extend life expectancy – Elastomeric roof coating provides seamless protection of the entire roof system. It protects against exposure to UV rays and pollutants and most definitely pays for itself by lengthening the lifespan of the roof by upwards of twenty years.
    • Maximize efficiency – This cost-effective roof coating minimizes heat absorption by reflecting sunlight and solar heat. This in turn helps to keep the home cooler and reduces the workload of the air conditioner. You pay lower monthly bills and minimize impact on the environment.
    • Severe weather protection – Despite high winds, rain, hail or snow, the coating remains attached and defends against potential damage.
  • EPDM: Also known as “rubber roofing,” EPDM is the most popular choice for flat roofs. The financial, physical and environmental benefits are unmatched. EPDM consists of a mixture of recycled tires, sawdust and slate dust. Because of this, it is one of the least expensive roofing options on the market. The low price doesn’t reflect the quality or durability of EPDM roofs. Along with a very low cost of Installation, there are very few seams, making leaks extremely rare. EPDM roofs typically last over twenty years. Some of the many advantages of EPDM rubber roofing include:
    • Breathability – EPDM roofs encourage heat and vapors to escape without welcoming moisture or heat inside.
    • Durability – This type of roof offers a typical life expectancy of twenty years, but this number can be doubled with annual maintenance and regular sealing.
    • Efficiency – EPDM roofs naturally reflect sunlight and heat. By keeping the home cooler, there’s less demands on the air conditioner, resulting in lower energy bills.
    • Environmentally friendly – The materials used in EPDM roofing are recycled products. Plus, the roof can also be recycled at the end of its productive lifespan.
    • Flexibility – The material conforms around pipes, skylights and gutters. It won’t crack due to extreme moisture or dryness.
    • Lightweight- EPDM consists of a single-ply roofing membrane that is very lightweight, making it a good choice when building weight is an issue.
