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.

Greetings and Happy New Year! January 2016 finds the staff and leadership of ERA looking back at the past year to assess our achievements, and looking forward to plan our work for the coming year. As always, our overriding goal is provide technical and research support to the construction industry, and communicate the longstanding attributes and value proposition of EPDM rubber membrane roofing materials. When ERA was founded in 2003, we were responding to what we felt was a need for unbiased, science-based information about our products. Given the increasing complexity of the building environment, we feel that need is even more acute today than it was more than ten years ago.
