Single-Ply Roofing Membranes
As the name suggests, single-ply roofing systems are made to be installed effectively in one layer. These types of roofing systems are popular for a number of reasons, including their flexibility and their resistance to UV radiation. Single-ply roofing membranes are installed by being glued, fastened, or hot-air welded over roof insulation material.
While there are quite a few types of single-ply roofing membranes to choose from, each of them falls into one of the two general single-ply roofing categories: Thermosets and Thermoplastics. We can help you choose the best membrane for your specific situation by informing you of the pros and cons of each.
These types of single-ply roofing membranes are made from synthetic rubber polymers. A few examples include EPDM, CSPE, and Neoprene. A thermoset membrane is great for large roofing surfaces since they can be installed with a minimal number of seams. These roofs are generally carbon black which improves their ability to handle UV rays.
These hot-air welded membranes have cohesive laps and are made from plastic-based materials. The most common thermoplastic membranes are TPO and PVC. These types of roofs are extremely flexible and come in white which make them more reflective. This is why these roofs are known for their ability to improve a building’s energy-efficiency. Thermosets are also easy to install, and the membranes are both durable and long-lasting.
