Single Ply Roofing

What You Need to Know About Single-Ply Roofing

When it comes to flat or low-slope roofs, there are several material types we can use. The primary purpose of this roofing style is to provide protection from water, wind, and UV radiation while being a lightweight and flexible membrane. PVC, TPO, and EDPM are the most common single-ply materials, all of which are available from our team at Geo Roofing.

Why Choose Single-Ply Roofing?

There are multiple reasons why this option may be the best for your home or commercial property, including:

  • Cost-Effective: This protective membrane covering a roof means virtually no roofing maintenance or repairs from then on. Your home or building will be protected from rain, strong winds, and ultraviolet rays.
  • Flexible: A single-ply roof’s flexibility is necessary because it will naturally shift in small degrees with your building as the temperature heats up and cools down. When it shifts, the single-ply roofing will adjust with it.
  • Durable: Single-ply roofing membranes are tough enough to withstand scratches or damage from items stored on or rolled across the roof. Roofs that see a lot of traffic will hold up under single-ply roofing.

Installing Residential and Commercial Roofing Systems

There is a lot that goes into correctly installing a single-ply roofing membrane. We have the years of experience necessary to get the job done right every time. Our contractors know how to clean and prepare a surface for any single-ply roofing system.

The application process for either a residential or commercial building is done with meticulous care. The system is usually comprised of several layers: a base, optional insulation layer(s), the membrane, and protrusion flashings. These are all combined to create a single waterproof system fused together with a specialized high-heat welding machine. The welding process fuses the materials together, creating a strong, weatherproof single layer that will protect the roof for years to come.

Types of Materials for Single Ply Systems

TPO, thermoplastic polyolefin, is the most common type of membrane roofing available today. It’s a synthetic rubber blend of polypropylene and ethylene-propylene rubber. It is then combined with a fabric scrim for reinforcement without sacrificing flexibility. 

PVC, polyvinyl chloride, is the combination of ethylene and chlorine with plasticizers, then reinforced with polyester or fiberglass, creating a flexible yet stable roof. This material is widely known and used for its resistance to chemical and natural elements. 

EDPM, ethylene propylene diene monomer, is a synthetic rubber used for more than roofing in the construction industry. This material is also great for waterproofing and sealing, as it can withstand extreme temperatures, UV radiation, and weathering.
