The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) recently issued its annual report on the damage caused by natural disasters during the past year. Not surprisingly, 2017 holds the unwelcome record of being the most damaging year since NOAA began tracking these statistics.

One of ERA’s overriding goals is to ensure that our members’ EPDM products are used in the most energy-efficient manner. We want our customers to know that EPDM is one of the most sustainable roofing products used today by the construction industry, with long-term performance up to or exceeding 40 years. We also want our customers to be aware of recent developments that can help inform their roofing decisions: research shows, for instance, that fully adhered systems can deliver up to eight-percent energy savings when compared to a mechanically attached roof.
