When the existing roof system or metal cladding still performs well and is structurally sound but exhibits minor wear and tear at the seams or the finish looks faded, surface rusted, worn or just needs updated, a recoat of the existing metal roof may be the right solution. A new coating can provide a beautiful new appearance to a facility at a much lower cost than a retrofit.

How to Install Rubber Roofing?

Rubber roofing installation is a whole different ballgame than traditional flat roofing installation. Instead of solid materials layered on top of plywood, as traditional flat roofing is, rubber roofing is applied as a liquid coating. Then, it’s left to cure and strengthen.

When replacing a flat roof, the old materials have to be stripped, but rubber coatings can be applied directly on top of the existing roof. Removing that step alone saves your crew a lot of time and energy. There are three main steps to installing or applying an EPDM rubber roof membrane, which include preparing the roof, repairing damaged portions and applying the new coating.

Preparation to Install Rubber Roofing

This might be the most crucial step of installing EPDM roofs, so set aside the time to do it right. Preparing the roof for the new coating will help it adhere better, so it can serve the building for as long as possible.

To begin, remove the loose debris with a leaf blower or broom. Then, use a pressure washer to release additional dirt and grime. If there are contaminants left over, you can remove them with a degreasing product such a Cleaner/Degreaser. Allow at least 24 hours between cleaning and beginning your coating project.

Things to consider

 The cost of materials for a recoat will likely be far less than that of a retrofit, making the recoat project more cost effective.


Some common preparation conditions and techniques include:

• Solvent cleaning for the removal of grease, oil, dirt or other soluble contaminants

• Hand tool cleaning such as chipping sanding or brushing for the removal of loose rust, mill scale, loose paint or other foreign matter

• Power tool cleaning for a more aggressive removal of the substances mentioned above

• Pressure washing

• High-pressure water jetting

• Blast cleaning
