SINGLE PLY ROOFING MEMBRANES
“Single-Ply” roofing is a commercial roofing membrane that is known for its strength, flexible sheets and its long lasting durability. Single ply roofing materials are made of compounded synthetic materials that are manufactured in factories with strict quality control requirements.
There are three major categories of single-ply membranes: modified bitumen, thermosets, and thermoplastics.
- Modified Bitumen – These membranes are factory-fabricated layers of asphalt, they reinforced for added strength and stability and they are combined with a rubber or plastic for increased flexibility
- Thermosets – These are commonly referred to as “EPDM” roofing systems or “Rubber Roofing” systems. Thermosets are a preferred low-slope roofing membrane, by many contractors, because they have been proven to withstand the damaging effects of sunlight and chemicals that are generally found on roofs.
- Thermoplastic – Thermoplastic membranes are most easily identified by the seams in them that are formed through chemical welding or heat. These membranes are based on plastic polymers and have many different formulations, of which “PVC” is the most common.
