Arizona EPDM Coatings
Information about Liquid Roof and Its Benefits
The liquid EPDM Coating can also be used to repair existing EPDM roofs. If only a small area of the sheeting is damaged or needs to be replaced, it may be more cost effective to use sheeting for repair, as long as you can find a small amount of sheeting. Here you can learn a bit about liquid roof and its benefits for new and existing construction. Letís start with the basics.
What Is It?
Liquid roof is a liquefied version of a synthetic rubber typically referred to as EPDM coatings. The letters EPDM stand for ethylene, propylene, diene monomer and M class respectfully.
Before the liquefied version came on to the market, rolls of the rubber were used for waterproofing roofs. The liquids of EPDM Coatings are easier to apply. They fill up cracks and crevices. They can go where the sheets could not go.
Why Choose the Liquids?
Ease of application is one reason. The foil is more difficult to apply correctly. You could easily end up with bumps, overlaps and uneven spots that contribute to water pooling. Water can seep under the rubber sheets and cause the roofs to leak. So, while the rolls were the best choice for waterproofing at one time, there are better choices today. As a liquid these EPDM Coatings can conform to any shape of roof, flashing, or protrusion both vertical and horizontal.
The liquids have more uses. They can be used on RV roofs and other vehicles. They can be applied to a wide range of roofing materials including metal, fiberglass and wood. Through the use of an undercoating, the liquids can be applied to built-up and asphalt-based coatings. Liquid EPDM Coatings forms 100% seamless membrane. Other reasons to choose the liquids are listed in some detail below. A lot is has a proved 25 year history of success.
Liquid Roof and Its Benefits for New Construction
For new building construction, applying the liquids increases the lifespan of caulks and sealants used to waterproof around flashings, vents, HVAC units and other protrusion points. If the new roofs are made of steel or aluminum, the liquids prevent rust and effectively extend the life of the roofing material.
