Single-ply roofing is a wide width membrane meant for low slope roofs with large open roof sections. Single-ply roofs have fewer seams than modified bitumen roof systems and do not require the use of a torch or hot asphalt for installation.
There are many types of single-ply roofing materials used, a few of which are listed below:
Thermoplastic Polyolefin (TPO) is typically white in color, known for its waterproofness and is highly reflective.
Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) offers fire and chemical protection as well as solid welded seams.
Ethylene Propylene Diene Terpolymer (EPDM) is a rubber roofing membrane known for its waterproofness and long service life. EPDM roofs are installed with adhesives and tape and can be fully adhered, mechanically attached or ballasted.
Ketone Ethylene Ester (KEE) is a lightweight yarn base fabric coated with a top coat which is flexible, resistant to harmful UV rays and chemicals.
To ensure a single-ply roof system will perform for years to come, it is crucial to hire a knowledgeable and experience roofing contractor.
