EPDM Roof Restoration
EPDM roof restoration near Madison, WI
Conklin formulated the first acrylic roof coating in 1977. Now we’re taking our innovation to new heights by offering a complete waterproofing
system for approved membranes. As TPO and other membranes become weathered, rooftops can crack, leak, and pick up dirt, diminishing their effectiveness and energy-saving properties. Conklin’s elastomeric coatings provide a new, cost-effective solution for repairing and preserving approved membranes, resulting in improved energy savings.
Since then, it has become one of the most popular types of roofs in commercial construction thanks to its flexibility, long lifespan, low maintenance, and affordability.
However, like all roofs, EPDMs need to be cared for in order to stay functional. Over time, even a maintained roof can develop some leaks, cracks, tears, and other issues. Dirt can accumulate on the rooftop, which diminishes the effectiveness of the roof’s reflective and energy-saving qualities.
We offer EDM roofing restoration in Marshfield, Appleton, Eau Claire, Fond Du Lac, Green Bay, Madison, and Wausau, WI. Our technicians use the Conklin EPDM Restoration System to tightly seal and waterproof your roof and restore its efficiency.
An approved membrane restored with a Conklin Roofing System will deliver all these benefits for years to come:
- Stops leaks with superior waterproofing.
- Increases energy efficiency and lowers utility expense with its
- cool, white, reflective surface.
- Extends the life of your existing roof.
What Is an EPDM Roofing Restoration System?
The restoration process for an EPDM roof involves applying a fresh layer of acrylic sealant from Conklin to reinforce its effectiveness. EPDM roofs are a fantastic investment because they are able to be restored and repaired without the need for replacement.
Their flexibility makes them highly adaptable to restoration, even if they’ve suffered years of damage. The restoration system is meant to last for 5-10 years at a time with only regular cleaning required to keep it pristine.
Simple recoats mean that your roofing maintenance only takes a few hours and spares you expensive repairs or replacement.
Recoup your costs
A great return on investment is another important reason to install Conklin’s EPDM restoration Roofing System. Many satisfied building owners discover that a Conklin roof pays for itself during the warranty period in lower air conditioning costs. Federal tax rebates, tax credits and deductions may also offset your investment. Check with your local utility company, tax advisor, and www.energystar.gov for additional details.
Look forward to years of trouble-free protection, low maintenance
EPDM Restoration Systems provide leak-free protection and exceptional energy savings for years, often exceeding the warranty period.
They maintain maximum reflectivity and energy savings because their surfaces are resistant to dirt and discoloration. Annual or bi-annual cleaning is all that’s needed to keep them white.
Eliminate future roof tear-offs
Years from now, when it’s time to renew the superior protection of your Conklin roof, a simple recoat will do the job. In most cases, multiple recoats can be done for the entire life of your roof, saving you the expense of a new roof. With your recoat, our material warranty may also be extended.
Benefits of an EPDM Roofing System
In many cases, we recommend a Conklin EPDM Restoration System over a repair or replacement. Here’s why.
Our Latest on EPDM Membrane Roofs
How Do I Know If I Have an EPDM Rubber Roof?
Flat rubber roofs can be EPDM or TPO (thermoplastic polyolefin). Roofs that seem to be completely covered in rubber and are black in color are usually EPDM. TPO roofs are typically white and have an extremely tight fit over the building.
If you can’t tell the difference, don’t worry. One of our expert contractors can take a look and tell you what type of roof you have and recommend the perfect protective sealant to keep it in excellent condition for years to come.
How to Repair EPDM Roofing
The biggest problem property owners experience with their EPDM roof is shrinkage and looser sealing after a decade or so. The continuous UV exposure can cause the material to move away from drains, flashings, or roof corners, which increases your risk of water damage while lowering energy efficiency.
Restoring your EPDM roof membrane with a Conklin system can rapidly resolve any of these vulnerabilities and protect your building.
The EPDM Restoration System is applied directly over your existing roof. We can patch any low spots on your roof with premium filler or epoxy or cover them with a new EPDM membrane. It’s that simple.
EPDM systems can be installed in just a couple of hours and take 24 hours to completely dry. After that, you’ll have an impenetrable waterproof seal on your roof that keeps your building safe from the elements.
Another significant benefit you’ll notice after installing a new EPDM system is that your building cools and heats more efficiently. This can be a mild or major difference compared to your current temperature control, depending on the level of damage to your roof.
In either case, a new EPDM system is the easiest way to repair an EPDM roof and lower energy expenses.
Is EPDM Roof Sealant Environmentally Friendly?
Conklin’s sealants are made with the planet’s health in mind. You will never have to worry about chemicals or toxic run-off from water falling off your roof and polluting the environment. Additionally, these sealants do not pose health risks to people in your building.
Many customers are delighted to discover that these sealants can have a positive environmental impact. By improving your building’s energy efficiency, EPDM systems can prevent leaking more heat into the environment. This ultimately contributes to fighting climate change and preserving our planet’s health.
