Carlisle SynTec’s Vice President of Marketing, Mike DuCharme, has recently served as the chairman of the EPDM Roofing Association (ERA). In this capacity, DuCharme sat down with BUILDINGS’ senior writer – Janelle Penny – at the 2019 International Roofing Expo (IRE) to talk roofing on the BUILDINGS podcast.
DuCharme brought to the podcast a wealth of knowledge about the roofing industry, which he has gathered over his past 35 years in the industry, and as the chair of ERA for the past 2 years. ERA is a trade association that represents the manufacturers of EPDM single-ply roofing materials, and works to ensure that the roofing industry is focusing on the most important and relevant current building trends.
As many in the industry know, there is a need for resiliency in roofing products, as well as sustainability. These two things have been a main focus over recent years in the roofing industry and for ERA, and DuCharme discusses the different ways in which focusing on creating sustainable and resilient products is the best option for all building material manufacturers.
