Carlisle’s EPDM – Sure-Seal TPO Roof System
Carlisle’s signature roof system, Sure-Seal® EPDM, has established 50 years of excellence. Its reputation of low maintenance and top-notch weathering characteristics makes it the ideal roofing option for many climates. In northern climates especially, the original black color of our Sure-Seal membrane attracts the sun’s solar energy, leading to significant reductions in heating costs during the winter months. The EPDM membrane may also help melt snow that can pile up on your roof and lead to potential structural damage if not removed in a timely manner.
Sure-White™ EPDM roof systems combine the consistent high performance of Carlisle’s EPDM with the numerous benefits of reﬂ ective roofing membranes.* Substantial savings in air conditioning costs is one of the many reasons Sure-White EPDM roof systems deliver an exceptional choice for buildings in southern climates.
Sure-Seal EPDM roof systems offer easy installation and require no special tools or complex equipment. With innovations such as Factory-Applied Tape™ (FAT), where seam tape is applied to the membrane in the factory, and pressure-sensitive accessories, the installation of a Sure-Seal EPDM system has never been easier and more efficient.
Sure-Seal EPDM Energy-Efficient TPO Roofing
It is often misconstrued within the industry that white roofs are the lone option in attaining an energy-efficient roof system. This misconception is driven by manufacturers that produce only white roofing products and is simply not true. Although there are undeniable benefits to reflective roofing materials, these advantages are seen primarily in warmer climates. In colder climates white roofs increase heating costs, increase snow and ice load and increase potential for condensation problems. Dark colored membranes are more energy efficient in colder climates where building owners typically spend 5 times more money heating their building than cooling. With an unparalleled 50 years of experience in the industry, Carlisle has proven through time that reflective membranes are not the best solution for everyone and in fact can create problems in colder climates if not designed properly.
