What is Single Ply Roofing?

Single-ply roofing refers to a type of roofing membrane that consists of a single layer of material. These membranes are typically used in flat or low-sloped roofs and are designed to provide a durable and waterproof covering. Single-ply roofing systems are popular in commercial and industrial buildings.

There are three main types of single-ply roofing membranes:

TPO (Thermoplastic Olefin): TPO roofing membranes are composed of a blend of polypropylene and ethylene-propylene rubber. They are known for their flexibility, heat-welded seams, and resistance to UV radiation.

PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride): PVC roofing membranes are made of a thermoplastic material called polyvinyl chloride. They are known for their durability, resistance to chemicals and fire, and ability to withstand exposure to harsh weather conditions.

EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer): EPDM roofing membranes are made of a synthetic rubber compound. They are flexible, resistant to UV radiation, and have good weathering properties. EPDM is often installed in large, seamless sheets.

Single-ply roofing systems are popular because of their ease of installation, lightweight nature, and ability to provide a seamless and watertight barrier when properly installed. They are commonly used in both new construction and roof replacement projects for commercial and industrial buildings. The choice of the specific type of single-ply membrane often depends on factors such as climate, building design, and budget considerations.
