Single Ply Roofing

Cost effective roofing solution for your Florida business

There are several potential benefits to using single ply roofing on your office building or warehouse. One of the main benefits is that single ply roofing is relatively easy to install and maintain. This makes single ply roofing a cost-effective roofing solution.

Single ply roofing is generally lightweight. This is especially beneficial if you’re concerned about the weight of your roof.

Single ply roofing is also flexible, which can be helpful in areas with fluctuating temperatures or where the building may settle or shift over time.

Finally, single ply roofing is durable and can last for many years with proper maintenance.

Flat roof and low-slope roof replacement

Single ply roofing is an ideal, cost-effective solution for flat and low-slope commercial roofs for the reasons mentioned above and more:

  1. Flexibility
    Single ply membranes are typically made from synthetic materials that are highly flexible and can easily conform to the contours of a flat or low-sloped roof without cracking or splitting.
  2. Waterproofing
    Single ply membranes are highly effective at keeping water out of a building, which is critical for flat and low-slope roofs that are at higher risk of ponding water and leaks.
  3. Durability
    Single ply roofing materials like TPO, PVC and EPDM are resistant to UV rays, extreme temperatures and chemicals, making them quite durable.
  4. Ease of Installation
    Single ply roofing systems are relatively easy to install and maintain, which is an advantage for flat and low-slope roofs that may be difficult or dangerous to access.
  5. Cost Efficient
    Compared to other roofing systems, Single ply roofing systems are cost efficient.
  6. Energy Efficient
    Single ply roofing systems are also energy efficient and can help to reduce cooling and heating costs for the entire building.

All the above factors make single ply roofing systems an ideal option for flat and low-sloped
roofs, especially for commercial and industrial buildings.

What is Single Ply Roofing?

Single ply roofing is a type of roofing made from a single layer of synthetic material, such as EPDM (ethylene propylene diene terpolymer), TPO (thermoplastic olefin), or PVC (polyvinyl chloride).

Common types of single ply membrane roofing systems

TPO Roofing

TPO membrane roof systems

Tested and proven as a commercial roofing solution, TPO roofing is one of the fastest growing roofing systems on the market. With its low installation cost, low-cost maintenance, and its high durability, TPO roofing will continue to be the preferred option for flat and low-slope commercial roofs for the foreseeable future.

The benefits of TPO roofing support its popularity:

TPO roofing is a blend of a few different types of rubber. It is typically white on top, which helps reflect harsh sunlight and reduce heat buildup within the commercial structure.

PVC Roofing

PVC roofing is typically the most expensive of all single ply roofing types, but its unmatched strength supports its higher cost. A PVC roof typically lasts in excess of 20+ years. They also reflect sunlight and help reduce heat buildup in the building, making them highly efficient for both cooling and heating.

As mentioned, a PVC roof is typically the most expensive of the single ply roofing options. In addition to the material cost, installation typically involves completely removing the old roof before installation of the PVC roof system.

EPDM Roofing

One of the longest lasting commercial roofing types, EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer) can last up to 50 years and more!

EPDM is often referred to as a “rubber roof. It’s both quick and easy to install. Additionally, the material which makes up EPDM roofing is the least expensive of the three major single ply roofing types.

The EPDM membrane is extremely lightweight and therefore requires no reinforcement of the roof deck. These factors make installation of EPDM the lowest cost option of all single ply roof systems.
