Single Ply Roofing Membrane
Single-Ply Membrane Roofing, a product that was developed to tackle our country’s growing problem of moisture and leakage, has shown itself over the years to be an efficient way of allowing businesses to operate efficiently while offering increased levels of safety and protection. It’s especially effective at helping the areas protected from various elements, withstand longer periods without having to worry about problems.
Time-tested and proven for over 40 years, single-ply roofs are the first choice for many large industrial and commercial construction projects across the great state of USA! No matter if you’re planning to build something new or need a repair made quickly due to an unfortunate storm incident, we have solutions that work! We can replace your old roof with a sturdy new one that doesn’t immediately have to be fixed again. This saves your time and energy in the long run.
Various kinds of single-ply membrane rooftops
Ethane Propylene Diene Terpolymer (EPDM) and thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO), two common types of commercial roofing, have a variety of different properties depending on their chemical makeup. TPO is more energy-efficient than EPDM but it’s also less flexible; whereas EPDM has higher initial resistance which makes installation easier with using simple tools like hand tamperers
The main reason why these materials are used in buildings instead of something else can be because they provide all that’s needed – strength, insulation qualities, etc.- so there isn’t much room left over for mistakes when choosing between them.
Thermoplastic polyolefin is a roofing system made up of single-ply membrane material that has been proven over time to withstand wind-, water-, and fire-related catastrophes. The thermoplastic polyolefin roofing systems are quite durable, usually lasting anywhere between 20 to 40 years depending upon their age, brand, and installation conditions (i.e., winds). Wearing course granules covered in a smooth outer coating with a pore size of below 3/4 micron. Depending on the quality, brands last longer and come with varying warranties. Lasts for around 35 years if not exposed much to UV rays
Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer
The single-ply membrane material known as Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer used to be widely accepted in commercial roofing facilities. But now EPDM has only about 20% of the market; instead, many buildings are making the switch over to a more trusted and proven commercial roofing option such as NRCA roofing materials. Though NRCA has been around longer than its counterpart, EPDM is considered a safer bet because it just works better.
EPDM comes in a variety of thicknesses: 45, 60, and 90 mils, as well as black or white color options. EPDM produces a dark grey or black hue for your roof, whereas TPO has a natural white appearance. While the darker tint does not reflect UV rays have the ability to hold heat, which is why they are useful in lower climates.
The cost of a Single-Ply Membrane
Materials and labor for a typical 20,000 square foot business roof cost about $3.50 to $7.50 per square foot for a typical single-ply membrane roofing system.
The following are some of the factors that influence pricing:
· Roof Size
· Observations on the existing roof
· Choice of Insulation
· Options for Membranes
· Installation Options
· Obtain to your roof
· Weather Routines in Place
· Kinds of Contract
Advantages Single-Ply Membrane
We offers a variety of membranes manufactured by different manufacturers, so we can make sure to match each customer’s climate and needs. All manufacturers can provide us with their top-quality products which provide high performance and durability in weather conditions.
In terms of installation, performance, cost, and lifetime, there are various advantages to placing a single-ply membrane roofing system over different types of roofs.
Proven Track Record
EPDM flooring is possibly among the most adaptable types of commercial flat flooring available, having been on the market for more than 60 years. we’re able to learn from various lab and field tests that have been done, which ultimately leads us to learn more about EPDM roofs and how they can best be used.
Insulation Material Options
Due to being thinner, single-ply membranes are more versatile than multi-ply counterparts when it comes to installing roof coverings. As such, there are hundreds of types of insulation textures and materials that the project manager can choose from to insulate their roof area with the best type of material they feel would work best for them. Some options include polyisocyanurate, expanded polystyrene (EPS/XPS), and extruded polystyrene (XPS).
Choice of Reflective or Retentive Properties
TPO and EPDM are two main types of membranes used in the construction of open condensation. TPO membranes, which are white and highly reflective, while EPDM is a black membrane described as “black roofs” when the product is first placed onto rooftops to keep things dry.
What makes processing spray polyurethane foam roofing different from installing single-ply membrane roofing, is that spray polyurethane foam has to be sprayed on with special equipment and needs time to cure. Whereas, when you use a rubber membrane for your roof, instead of building up layers of plywood and sheathing, it’s attached and secured by either ballasting, adhesives, or mechanical fasteners.
Adaptable and weightless
Although single-ply membrane roofing is lightweight, it doesn’t mean that just because it’s lightweight it’s better. In some cases, other types of commercial flat roof systems can be even more cost-effective and efficient than your typical single-ply membrane roofing. However, if weight isn’t a concern and cost is then your decision may very well depend on the level of customization you wish to have as well as the look and durability you seek after in your final selections.
