Investing in Resilience

January 25, 2018 14:55
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. Sixteen natural disasters during 2017 each caused more than $1 billion in damage, and account collectively for a total of $306.2 in losses. While this statistic is staggering enough, it does not account for the destruction caused by smaller, but still powerful, natural events.

Task Force on Resiliency

March 07, 2017 12:08
The last 20 years have produced many more severe weather events – heat waves, droughts, hurricanes, and tornadoes, for instance - than any other period since record-keeping began in 1880. It’s not ERA’s job to weigh in on why the decades-long pattern of severe, sometimes intense and very unusual weather is continuing into 2017. But it is our job, and the job of our members, to help you protect the buildings you own, manage, design and construct. We invite you to visit it often, hopefully learn from what we have to offer, and share your insights about the best ways to deal with the extreme weather patterns we have been experiencing. www.EpdmTheResilientRoof.com

EPDM roofing can offer benefits as resiliency becomes an increasingly important component of building design.
