epdm repair

I have talked about epdm roofing installations and coatings but I don't think I have made a strong enough warnings about coatings. I have said make sure your coating is compatable with epdm roofing, which is true. But I still run across people who try to repair this roof with an asphalt type of coating which will only work for a short time and then will attack the epdm membrane and cause failure. I just want to say never, never, never use an asphalt type product to repair a epdm rubber roofing system. If you do when your roof leaks again and you have to do permenant repairs it will only cost you more money.
