Single-ply roofing systems are considered to be flexible sheets composed of plastic-derived material that is becoming more and more common in Central Texas. Due to their high durability, properly installed single ply roofing systems can last a long time and have many advantages over “old-school” roofing systems such as BUR systems. These types of roofing systems can be ballasted or chemically adhered to the insulation to give full protection to your low-sloped roof. There are many advantages to a single-ply roof system, including its options for insulation, easy installation, and has a proven track record of almost 60 years. However, these systems can be punctured easily, so you will need to be careful!
There are three main types of single-ply roofing systems.
- TPO (Thermoplastic Polyolefin)
- PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride)
- EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer)
Hiring an experienced contractor who knows the best practices of single-ply roofing is one of the most essential steps in the roofing process. From TPO to EPDM, QA Roofing has installed multiple different types of single-ply roofing systems. Our skilled employees have installed these systems in commercial, industrial, educational, and historical buildings.
