Changes In Roofing Demands Over The Past 5 Years

Many people postpone their plans for improving their homes until the following year because they have to shop for back to school items such as football and soccer cleats for their children. Consequently, they end up spending more money when they postpone their plans to install new roofs because roofing materials and especially asphalt shingles, which is the most popular, become more costly as time goes by.

Just a few months ago, suppliers gave notices to many people about a possible 5% price increase for asphalt underlayment that have ice/water and felt shield and asphalt shingles, which are the most commonly used commodities. In the last 5 years, such price increases have become common even though some people do not consider them important. In effect, the demand for new roofs has decreased significantly.

The price increases for roofing materials like EPDM Rubber,Liquid EPDM Rubber and Liquid RV Roof repair has led to a slight increase in the cost of labor and a significant increase in the cost of replacing roofs over the past few years. Asphalt based roofing materials become more costly because of various factors. The increase in oil prices that people experienced a few years ago is largely responsible for the increased in the price of the aforementioned materials.

In spite of the drastic changes in oil prices, which have led to the leveling off and significant drops , the prices of asphalt roofing materials continue to increase steadily because they are not easily available . Hence, many people consider their availability one of the greatest contributors to the steady increase in roofing prices and subsequent decline in roofing demands over the past few years.

The roofing industry uses less than 10% of all asphalt while people use the remaining 90% for pavement. Many people think that the prices of asphalt shingles and other bituminous products that are ideal for constructing residential houses would change as the home building, home improvement industries fail, and the economy faces numerous hardships. However, the consumption of asphalt has increased significantly thanks to the transportation projects.

Thanks to “The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, , which shows that the dollars that the government collects in the form of taxes is working, the Department of Transportation has released billions of dollars for people to reinvest across the nation. Many people think that the local government is using a big percentage of this money for the paving of roadways and for resurfacing purposes.

As compared to the steady demand for asphalt, which is commonly used for pavement, the impact that the current decline in home improvement and home building has on the prices of asphalt is not that great especially because the federal government has increased transportation projects significantly. However, the creation of higher value products by making oil-refining facilities more efficient has also affected the asphalt prices.

The production of fuels by using oil is largely responsible for producing asphalt. The federal government made the efficient increase in the production of fuels by using oil mandatory by introducing measures a few years ago. In effect, it led to an increase in the demand for asphalt even though some people considered these mechanisms cokers for the manufacture of “Ultra Low Sulfur Fuels, which are very effective nowadays.

Choose The Best Roofing Material

There are certain roofing materials available like Liquid applied roofing systems to choose from. Each having its own pros and cons. Moreover the cost is one of them and the material is a also a big factor. You should ask your contractor about the best roofing material, keeping in mind the place where you have to deploy it. Moreover there are certain materials available now which are attributed as green materials and are energy star related. This factor should also be kept in mind. Some of materials available in the market are:

Asphalt Shingles: 

 Asphalt shingles are perhaps the most used roofing material in the world, especially in the USA. According to an estimate, 75% of American homes have asphalt shingle as the roofing material. It is less costly and easier to install, moreover it has the ability to survive the worst of the weather conditions. But the lifespan of asphalt shingle roof is much less than the other roofing materials. Moreover it is made of such products that are not recyclable and it does not gold a good environmental track record as well.

Wood shingles and shakes: 

Wood shingles are made with certain woods and you can purchase them in a number of varieties with cedar being used the most. Wood shingles are made and cut on the machine, whereas wood shakes are handmade and they appear little rough. The biggest concern that is related with the ordinary wood shingles is that they have a low fire rating. So you should decide this material with a lot of care. Moreover you can buy a material with the highest fire rating at an additional cost. Adding to its favor, it is a natural product but require high maintenance.

Clay and concrete tiles:

Concrete and clay tiles are perhaps the oldest and the most elegant roofing material for your place. They mostly come in lighter colors thus allowing them to reflect a maximum of sunlight thus keeping the roof cooler. These are very durable, long lasting and provide better protection. They come in a variety of shapes, textures and quality. You can choose one that fits your lifestyle. Clay tiles are one of than most green roofing materials available. Moreover they are energy efficient and environment friendly. You should keep in mind that these are heavy materials, and may require additional roof framing to support them.


Slate is an elegant, beautiful, eye catching, and non leaching material. A slate roof life can be as long as hundreds of years. It mostly comes in dark colors, so it is not recommended for the buildings located at high temperature regions. It is easily recyclable and environment friendly.

 Metal Roofs:

Metal roofs are probably the most stylish and cool roofs available now a day. These are available in copper, steel and aluminum metals. They are highly reflective and cause cooling effect. Moreover they are durable and may run twice as long as asphalt or wood shingles. They are light in weight and can withstand adverse weather conditions. They are environment friendly as well.

 Fiber Cement:

Fiber cement is composed up of three components, concrete, clay and wood fiber. They are lighter in weight than the concrete tiles and are very durable. They come in many shapes sizes and colors. But there is a drawback that you may not use them in cooler regions as they may crack. They are easily recyclable.

Liquid EPDM Rubber Coatings are aftermarket roof sealants

A number of aftermarket roof sealants are available, including urethanes, acrylics and liquid rubber. Liquid EPDM rubber is by far the most durable of the sealants available and has the widest range of applications.

It is more water resistant than other rubbers, including neoprene. It is more resistant to swelling and has a wider range of acceptable temperatures. It can be applied directly to practically any roofing material other than asphalt and can even be used on wood that has been primed.

Liquids have an obvious advantage over sheets. Sheets have seams. Seam sealers eventually deteriorate and water gets through the seams and under the sheeting.

Liquid EPDM can be used on top of neoprene, although some pre-treatment of the surface is required. Just knowing that the Liquid Rubber is recommended for use on top of the other type of rubber should be an indication that the material is more durable.

Liquid EPDM can also be used on top of polyurethane after a light sanding. It is somewhat surprising that urethanes are still used as aftermarket roof sealants. It is known that the structure is damaged by UV light and that discoloration occurs relatively quickly. Anyone who has made the mistake of using urethane as a roof sealant should consider applying liquid EPDM to truly protect the roof.

The liquids can also be used to seal existing leaks. They are self-adhering and fill up tiny fractures that let water through. It is a good idea to use a thick coat and cover the entire surface instead of attempting to only cover the leaky area.

When covering the entire roof, the liquid rubber reduces heat buildup. Not only does the roof stay cooler, but the interior of the building or the vehicle will also stay cooler. This benefit may reduce heating costs and keep the occupants more comfortable.

Liquid EPDM has become the most popular choice for RV roofs, because of all the above-mentioned advantages. It extends the lifespan of the roof and requires less maintenance. It lasts up to three times longer than any other aftermarket RV roof sealant and also reduces noise from rain.

As far as price goes, most sealants are similar in price. Depending on where you buy, EPDM may be a little more expensive, but because primers and additional coats are not usually necessary, and because it lasts so much longer, owners who choose this aftermarket roof sealant save money in the long run.

1)       Catalyst must be added prior to use.  Scrape sides of container with a Liquid rubber spatula to ensure catalyst distribution.
2)       Xylene or Mineral Spirits Solvents may be added to adjust viscosity or for clean-up. 
3)       Easiest way to spread the rubber on a flat surface is to broadcast material with a rubber squeegee then roll using a short nap roller.  Product is self leveling.  A flat spatula can be used for small areas. 
4)       Product has a long pot life after catalyst has been added; 4-6 hrs. depending on temperature. 
5)       Only temperature affects the rate of cure.  Relative humidity has no influence. 
6)       Product is hydrophobic (sheds water) so substrate to be coated must be dry initially.  The uncured rubber can get wet or even have ponding water, with only a cosmetic effect after application, and will still cure.
7)       The rubber will penetrate into porous substrates such as wood and poured concrete.  A primer/sealer should precede application of rubber. 
8)       The chemical reaction of the catalyzed rubber can be arrested by freezing the material.  This can keep material usable for weeks or months.  To use again simply allow it to reach room temperature and apply.

Proper care of an RV EPDM roof and maintenance of RV roof

How to Maintain Your RV EPDM Roof

With proper care and maintenance, your RV EPDM roof can last for 20 years or more. That’s pretty much equivalent to the life of the vehicle itself. One of the benefits of EPDM Rubber roofing materials is that the care and maintenance required is minimal. Regular cleaning is the first step.

Most manufacturers recommend cleaning the roof at least four times per year. The cleaner used should be one that is specifically designed for EPDM roofing and is free of petroleum distillates.

Products containing petroleum distillates, whether they are designed for cleaning or protecting, will cause the rubber to swell and loosen. There are many chemicals that fall under the category. The easiest way to tell for sure that the cleaner you are using does not contain any of the chemicals is to look for one that states on the label “free of petroleum distillates, safe for use on EPDM Coatings materials.”

Cleaning is a relatively simple matter, but you should keep your safety in mind. If you are going to be getting up on the roof, you should be on your hands and knees to reduce your risk of falling.

The first step is to rinse the roof thoroughly with plain water at a relatively high pressure. Any branches or sharp objects should be removed by hand, if possible. While EPDM is tear resistant, sharp objects can cause scratches when they are pushed along the surface. Eventually the scratches can become tears.

Once all debris has been rinsed away, you will need to take a medium bristle brush, a bucket of safe cleanser diluted with water and get up on the roof. You need only scrub in areas where you see stains or dirt.

Keep your hose with you so that you can rinse while you are cleaning. Start in the corner farthest away from your exit point and work backwards to minimize the amount of time you spend on the wet surface. 

After the roof is cleaned, you can use an EPDM protectant if you like. The protectant should be specifically designed for EPDM roofing, not for other types of materials. Some EPDM manufacturers also sell special protectants. While using the protectant is not essential, it may extend the life of the roof and reduce your need to restore or repair the roofing material.

Finally, proper care of your EPDM roof includes parking it in an area where the roof is protected as much as possible. Don’t park around fruit trees. The citric acid can deteriorate the material in between cleanings.
