Single Ply Roofing
Single play roofing is flexible and resistant to UV radiation in comparison to other roofing products. Its main characteristic is that it is installed in only one layer. Normally it is white or black in finish. Single ply roofing is glued and can be installed over other insulation material on a roof. Advanced modern technology means today's roofing is totally waterproof, effective and long lasting.
Basically, single ply can be either thermoplastic or thermoset. The latter is made from synthetic rubber polymer, the most common being Neoprene, CSPE and EPDM. Thermoset membranes are normally used on large roof areas as they are manufactured in a large size to minimise seams. When seams are used, they are hot welded together and are water resistant as well as fairly inconspicuous.
One of the main advantages of single ply roofing is its excellent performance during weather changes from very hot to very cold. Single ply is a lightweight product which is easy to use. The product has excellent reflective properties and is economically feasible.
Both types of single ply membrane are fairly easy to install, durable and waterproof. They should not be used in combination with any other single roofing system as these may prove incompatible.
A good roofing company will be able to provide a full consultation process, thermal insulation guidance and advice on installation. Computer Aided Design drawings will show the customer exactly what the roof will look like when the project is complete.
