There are generally two types of groups who choose liquid coating. The first are those looking for an economical way to extend the life of an existing roof and those building owners who want to save on the installation costs and have their staff apply the material. There are numerous systems on the market; those requiring a primer base and multiple coats to those needing a fabric reinforcement between coatings. With Liquid EPDM rubber for most roof types it is a one coat application. For those with tar or asphalt roofs the ProFlex Primer would be needed. Let’s take a closer look as some of the properties of the Liquid EPDM rubber and add some of the feedback from our customers.
Easy to work with- Once you mix the catalyst you have a 4 hour pot life more than sufficient to insure a proper application.
Durability-With Liquid EPDM you won’t need to worry about repairing your roof year after year. A one coat application is expected to last 1-16 years before minor touch up’s are needed. Also since you are only applying one coat the overall weight of your roof is significantly decreased vs. the multiple coat systems.
EPDM is one of the most resilient roofing materials out on the market. Its ability to expand and contract without fractures occurring is what has made it the choice of roofers around the world. Now Liquid EPDM provides all those important benefits of sheet EPDM with a few more added benefits. Since it is a liquid it will gradually “fill in” to the small openings of any roof substrate and leaving behind an airtight seal between the substrate and the coating. Since it’s a liquid once it cures it will be as if someone put a “one piece” layer of epdm on your roof. Never worry again about seams coming undone. Also Liquid EPDM is formulated differently and it will not chalk after 8-9 years. Our roofing clients appreciate the fact that it waterproofs immediately upon application. Many times have we received calls from roofers who where in the middle of a job when a rain storm came in. Yes, an added bonus with the product is that as long as it was applied to a dry surface weather conditions after the fact are not a concern.
