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.
