Single-Ply Roofing USA gives building owners a number of benefits, including waterproofing the roof substrate, helping to prevent roof leaks, and creating more energy-efficient interior climate control. A single-ply membrane can be used for flat roof maintenance and flat roof repair. When used for building roof maintenance, single-ply can qualify for a 100% tax deduction the first year!
Another benefit of single-ply roofing membranes is that, depending on the area climate, they can be attached in a number of safe and secure ways, from fully adhered to ballasted to mechanically attached. These membranes are strong yet flexible and lend themselves well to areas where high winds or extreme temperatures are prominent.
They are available in black or white, but we recommend going with bright white as these are the most energy-efficient membranes offering better reflectivity and emissivity than their black color counterparts. Just check out our Roof Temperature Chart and Infrared Comparison image.
Single-Ply roofing can seal and protect most roof substrates, including spray foam insulated substrates, concrete flat roofs, metal roofing, wood, steel, and most traditional roofing substrate materials. Single-Ply Roofing USA recommends bright white TPO membranes as these have been proven over time to be the most stable and durable single-ply products on the market. And when installed by a roofing professional, once the single-ply application is complete, most applicators can offer a long-term, single-ply manufacturer’s backed material and/or system warranty to keep your roof worry-free for many years to come.
Single-Ply Roofing USA recommended systems include products that are UL, FM Approved, and Miami-Dade County approved. Energy Star products and systems are also Single-Ply Roofing USA standards.
