Frequently Asked Questions

Black rubber roofs get really hot in the summer. With thermal cycling, they can lose elasticity. White, elastomeric coatings can reduce rooftop temperatures significantly.

Some roof coatings have difficulty adhering to badly deteriorated EPDM roofs that are already shedding their carbon black filler. The EnergyGuard Aromatic Polyurethane tenaciously adheres to EPDM without the need for high-alkali rinses.

EPDM roofs are typically coated anywhere from 6 to 12 years after installation and much earlier with UV degradation. 

Service life varies with environment and type of coating. Warm, humid and corrosive environments may necessitate an earlier recoat.

Once coated, consider re-coating every 10 to 15 years. Recoats can cost less since the contractor is just spraying another layer and not doing any of the usual prep.

Roof coating contractors have the equipment and expertise to handle large, complicated roof repair jobs. Building managers all agree that single ply roof coatings can minimize roof repair and maintenance costs to a typical roof.
