Single Ply Roof Installation
If you are looking for a practical solution to your commercial roofing needs, a single ply roof could be the answer. We hope you’ll choose us to install your single ply roof in Plano, Frisco, and surrounding areas.
Single ply roofs are different from the typical asphalt shingle roof that you find on residential properties. They are designed to be applied like a coating, rolled out in strips of varying thickness similar to the way one would lay carpeting.
Single ply roofing, also known as single ply membranes, falls into two major categories: thermosets and thermoplastics.
Thermoset Roofing, EPDM
Thermosets are weatherproof membranes made from rubberized polymers. They are extremely resilient against water, wind, and extreme temperatures, because they are able to contract and expand with the underlying structure. This prevents them from cracking when the weather is very hot or very cold.
However, thermosets can’t stand up to hot-air welding, so their seams are sealed with weatherproof tape, contact cement, or another strong adhesive. The most common type of thermoset roofing is EPDM.
Thermoplastic Roofing, TPO, PVC
Thermoplastic roofing is very similar to thermoset roofing, but the seams are heat-welded instead of closed with adhesives. They, too, are very resistant to the sun’s UV rays, as well as any wind or storm-related damage. TPO roofing and PVC roofing are the most commonly used thermoplastic roofing types. PVC is naturally flame-retardant. TPO can be made flame retardant as well with additives.
