Single Ply Roofing
Single Ply with The Most Company Reputable Roofing
Commercial buildings need protection, and single-ply membranes are the best way to do that. These prefabricated rubber sheets can be ballasted or chemically adhered to the insulation for a layer between you and the elements. They quickly have become the more popular option and have displaced older materials such as tar paper.

Benefits of Single-Ply
Choice of Reflective or Retentive Properties
Installing single-ply membrane roofing is relatively simple. After the existing substrate is prepared, either by cleaning or removing the roof, the insulation layers are installed and covered by a cover board.
Installing a single-ply membrane roof is relatively simple. First, the existing substrate needs to be prepared by cleaning or removing it from the structure. Then insulation layers are installed with cover boards covering them until installing the final product is on top. This ensures that water cannot seep through into any part during the winter when temperatures drop below freezing point.
Lightweight and Flexible
While there are multiple layers to this commercial flat roof system, you can choose how thick a membrane is installed on your building. Overall single-ply membranes make for lightweight roofs compared with other options with more than one layer or an underlayment material like asphalt shingle pavements in some cases.
The single-ply roofing systems are the most versatile in their flexibility. They can accommodate unique building designs and expand or contract with buildings, making them ideal for major construction projects.
Three Methods of Installing a Single-Ply Roofing System:
The Mechanically Attached System
The Fully Adhered System
This system is recommended for roofs with a slope. The mounting plates are used to anchor the insulation, and then single-ply roofing bonded directly onto it, creating an effective waterproof barrier against rainwater damage.
The Ballasted System
The new rubber roofing system provides fast coverage and minimal cost. The panels are up to 50 feet wide, 200 feet long; they go on top of insulation then get covered with a ballast blend.
