Single-Ply Membrane Roofs Explained
Single-ply membranes are sheets of rubber and other synthetics, which are ballasted, mechanically fastened, or chemically adhered to substructures. This roofing type offers a variety of benefits, including:
- Low-Cost Investment
- Increases Roof Lifespan
- Improves Energy Efficiency
- No Downtime
- Resists Fires
- Minimal Maintenance
- No Disposal Costs
- Easy Installation
Versatile Roofing Solutions
The three leading types of single-ply membrane commercial roofing systems are thermoplastic polyolefin, ethylene propylene diene terpolymer, and polyvinyl chloride. They offer superior performance, but differing chemical makeups result in unique characteristics.
Thermoplastic Polyolefin (TPO)
Arguably the most popular single-ply roofing retrofit solution is TPO, and for a good reason. This membrane is durable, flexible, and resistant to chemicals and moisture. Its reflective appearance combats sunlight and ultraviolet light exposure, reducing energy usage.
Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC)
PVC membranes are lightweight, flexible, flame-resistant, and resist chemicals as well as animal fats. Seams are welded together, eliminating leaks and interior dampness. These attributes minimize areas where mold and fungi could grow.
Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer (EPDM)
An EPDM membrane is composed of strong and durable synthetic rubber, offering excellent resistance to extreme weather. Its black surface can assist with snow melt and heat retention in colder climates, while its elasticity is well-suited for warmer and hail-prone areas.
