Fabric-Reinforced Roofing System

Rugged, hail-rated roof lowers energy costs

What is the Fabric-Reinforced System? 

A unique system that waterproofs with a seamless acrylic coating in which a tough, flexible fabric is embedded. This combination makes a rugged, yet lightweight membrane that resists splitting and rupturing - the primary cause of leaks. This system also substantially increases the strength of your roof, extends its life expectancy, and increases the energy efficiency of the building. 

Look forward to years of trouble-free protection, low maintenance 

Conklin's Fabric-Reinforced Roofing System provides leak-free protection and exceptional energy savings for years. It maintains maximum reflectivity and energy savings because its surfaces are resistant to dirt and discoloration. Annual or bi-annual cleaning is all that's needed to keep it white. 

Eliminate future roof tear-offs

Years from now, when it's time to renew the superior protection of your Conklin roof, a simple recoat will do the job. In most cases, multiple recoats can be done for as long as you own your building, saving you the expense of a new roof. With your recoat, our material warranty may also be extended. 

Rugged roof stands the test of time

Conklin's Fabric-Reinforced Roofing System is tough and flexible; it is recommended for both new and existing roofs. This extra-durable system will deliver these benefits for years to come: 

  • Stops leaks with superior waterproofing
  • Offers excellent wind and hail protection
  • Increases energy efficiency and lowers utility expense with its cool, white reflective surface
  •  Extends the life of your existing roof

“Compared to a conventional asphalt roof, Conklin’s Fabric-Reinforced Roofing System is a much better choice for building owners. It’s easier and faster to apply than asphalt, so there’s less disruption of business, and it keeps the building cooler so that energy costs are lower. In fact, it can pay for itself in energy savings over time. Plus, it’s better for the environment, because it doesn’t contain the toxic chemicals found in hot asphalt. Overall, it’s a smart decision. ”

Recoup your costs

A great return on investment is another important reason to install a Conklin Fabric-Reinforced Roofing System. Many satisfied building owners discover that a Conklin roof lowers air conditioning costs and can pay for itself during the warranty period. Federal tax rebates, tax credits, and deductions may also offset your investment. Check with your local utility company, tax advisor, and energystar.gov for additional details. 

Reduce cooling expense by up to 30% 

The average roof absorbs a large portion of the sun's ultraviolet rays as heat. Conklin's white Fabric-Reinforced System reflects 85% of the sun's heat, cooling your roof, which could save as much as 30% in air conditioning costs. 

Conklin Fabric-Reinforced System Application 

Conklin's Fabric-Reinforced Roofing System is extremely versatile and can be applied to many different roof substrates. The application procedure will vary depending upon the type of substrate; refer to specification guides or to a contractor well-versed in Conklin's Fabric-Reinforced System. 

Recommended for application over these surfaces: 

  • EPDM/BUR/Mod-Bit/TPO
  • Exterior Sheeting 
  • Concrete
  • Composite Decking 
  • ISO Board
  • Metal Roof Assemblies

After proper cleaning and application of appropriate primer, Spunflex is embedded into the base coat, over the seams, and at penetrations. 

Fabric is embedded into another layer of base coat then applied in overlapping sheets over the entire roof to form a seamless, monolithic surface. 

Top coat is then sprayed over the complete surface creating a seamless barrier against the elements.
