The EPDM Roofing Association (ERA) represents the manufacturers of EPDM single-ply roofing products and their leading suppliers. ERA provides technical and research support to the public and the construction industry, and communicates the longstanding attributes, consistency and the value proposition of EPDM rubber membrane roofing materials.

ERA amplifies the voice of the EPDM roofing industry with technical writings and research, feature news articles, website enhancements, social media outreach, and in-person testimony before code and standard setting organizations. Based on our release of timely and relevant studies since our founding in 2003, we have become a valuable resource for weighing competing claims and providing reliable technical information to the industry.
