What is a Single Ply Roof
Unlike metal or built-up roofing systems, single ply roofing solutions are synthetic TPO membranes available in 45mil with a 10-year warranty or 60mil with a 15-year warranty. The membrane is rolled onto the roof’s surface and attached either with adhesive or mechanically. The membrane is then sealed at the seams and sets in a short amount of time. Though the process seems simple, seam placement and seal procedure is very important to the life of the roof and should be done by a professional.
Single Ply Roofing Options
Thermoplastic single-ply roofing systems are comprised of a single layer of PVC, TPO or EPDM membrane and are ideal for large roofs with a low pitch. Thermoplastic membranes can be heat welded to ensure a strong seal on each seam and prevent separation in the future.
Thermoset single ply roofing membranes are made from a synthetic rubber polymer, usually EPDM, and use carbon or titanium dioxide as a UV repellent. Thermoset membranes are a cost-effective roofing solution that lasts approximately 30-40 years.
Each single ply roofing solution has benefits, and it is important to get expert advice before making a decision. We can help you come to the best decision possible for your business.
