IntelliGuard: The Future of Cool Roof Coating for EPDM Roofs

Cool Roof Coating for EPDM


In the world of commercial roofing, the quest for durable, cost-effective, and energy-efficient materials is ongoing. Among the various roofing materials, EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer) has been a popular choice for its resilience and longevity. However, EPDM roofs, especially those in darker shades, face challenges like deterioration and bubbling under extreme weather conditions. Here’s where IntelliGuard, a revolutionary cool roof coating system, steps in as a game-changer.

What is IntelliGuard?

IntelliGuard is an advanced roofing solution that represents a significant leap in roof coating technology. It's an elastomeric, copolymer liquid rubber coating designed for superior elongation, tensile strength, UV resistance, and exceptional weathering characteristics. This flexible membrane is not just a coating; it's a complete roofing system that promises to revolutionize how we think about protecting our buildings.

Key Benefits of IntelliGuard's Cool Roof Coating for EPDM Roofs

1. Affordability and Tax Benefits

  • Cost-Effective: IntelliGuard is approximately 50% less expensive than traditional roofing methods. It eliminates costs associated with tear-offs, disposal, and business operation disruptions.

  • Tax Advantages: It can be classified as a roof repair, allowing for immediate tax deductions, unlike roof replacements which require depreciation over several years.

2. Durability and Strength

  • Indestructible Nature: With multiple layers of specially formulated polymers, IntelliGuard boasts a remarkable thickness of 32 mils. It is impervious to acid rain, high salinity, and airborne contaminants.

  • Ironclad™ Fibersheet: This reinforces the strength, providing better alternatives to conventional felts in terms of tensile strength, elongation, tear strength, and puncture resistance.

3. Sustainability and Energy Efficiency

  • High Reflectivity: The reflective properties significantly reduce annual energy costs by reflecting solar energy back into the atmosphere.

  • Significant Savings: Building owners can save up to $1.80 per square foot and enjoy annual net savings of almost 50 cents per square foot.

4. Innovative Design

  • Seamless Roofing System: IntelliGuard creates a single, seamless membrane, eliminating common leak points found in traditional roofs.

  • Weather Resilience: The system has been proven to be 98% less likely to be breached during major weather events.

5. Warranty and Peace of Mind

  • Extended Warranty: IntelliGuard offers a 10-year manufacturer or 20-year service warranty, ensuring long-term reliability and peace of mind.

Application of IntelliGuard on EPDM Roofs

EPDM roofs, known for their durability and flexibility, are prone to issues like bubbling and deterioration over time, especially under harsh weather conditions. IntelliGuard's unique formulation and application process make it an ideal solution for these problems. Here's how:

  1. Preventing Deterioration and Bubbling: The seamless application of IntelliGuard ensures that there are no weak points where water or air can enter, preventing common problems like bubbling and deterioration.

  2. Enhancing Longevity: The added layer of protection extends the life of the EPDM roof, reducing the need for frequent repairs or replacements.

  3. Energy Efficiency: The cool roof coating aspect of IntelliGuard significantly reduces the surface temperature of EPDM roofs, leading to lower energy costs and a more comfortable interior environment.

Synergy with Flying Monkey Drone Works

In ensuring the best application and maintenance of IntelliGuard, Flying Monkey Drone Works plays a crucial role. Using advanced aerial imagery and 3D mapping, potential issues on the roof can be identified and addressed promptly. This synergy ensures that the application of IntelliGuard is precise, effective, and tailored to the specific needs of each building.


IntelliGuard is more than just a cool roof coating; it's a comprehensive solution that addresses the common challenges faced by EPDM roofs. Its affordability, durability, energy efficiency, and innovative design make it a smart choice for building owners and managers. Combined with the expertise of Yellow Brick Roofing and the technological advancements of Flying Monkey Drone Works, IntelliGuard is set to redefine roofing solutions in the commercial sector.
