Single Ply Membrane Roofing
When you need to cover a flat roof and ensure it is waterproof, a single ply membrane roof is often the answer you are looking for. Made from flexible sheets that can be molded and shaped, roofs of all sizes can be covered effectively.
With a lifespan of between 20 and 40 years, modern single-ply roofing is a strong investment in keeping your buildings safe in extreme conditions.
Tornado Roofing installs and repair roofs of all kinds across Florida, and we’re fully competent in the installation and repair of flat roofs covered in a range of materials including single ply membranes.
What is Single Ply Membrane Roofing?
Single ply membranes are usually made from two main types of material, either synthetic rubber or thermoplastics. Thermoplastics are the most common in use today and provide great flexibility and adaptability. Due to their nature, thermoplastics can be reheated and remolded, meaning they can be reused or recycled. This makes them quite environmentally friendly when compared to some other roofing types.
Why Choose Single Ply Membrane Roofing?
While this kind of roofing material can be applied to virtually any roof, it is normally used on flat roof areas. It is lighter in weight than clay or concrete tiles and can more easily fit awkward shapes if necessary.
The weather and environment in Florida can have a detrimental effect on roofing materials, but many single-ply membrane roofs in Florida are 100% UV resistant as well as protecting against water ingress. Certain materials even help to regulate the temperature in the building below.
Additionally, this style of roofing is resistant to the effects of high winds, so should the building be in the path of a hurricane there is not too much need for concern. Wind and rain will not penetrate a professionally installed single-ply membrane roof.
As for safety features, single ply membrane roofing is fire retardant and chemical resistant, making it suitable for industrial roofing usage as well as regular commercial or even residential roofing.
With the membrane being capable of being reused or recycled, it satisfies the need for eco-friendly roofing material, and will often last around 20 years before needing a roof replacement.
There are several different materials that this kind of roofing can be made from, and the cost of installing or replacing your roof will vary depending on the exact material you choose. That said, it is ideal for applications that other roofing materials would be unsuitable for and provides great protection to the building below.
All in all, while not suitable for every kind of roof, single ply membranes fit a niche that few other materials can.
Single Ply Membrane Roof Maintenance and Repair
Newinstallations of single ply membrane roofs in Florida will last for many years just left as they are, but regular inspections and preventative maintenance will help extend the lifespan of any roof.
Just like any kind of flat roof, you may experience pooling of water in some areas after heavy rainfall. The water may disperse after a short time, but the water that remains in one location for an extended period is an indication that the roof may need maintenance. Standing water can cause issues due to the weight of the water and its ability to penetrate through the tiniest of holes.
The weight of standing water can cause the membrane to bow and bend and increases the chance that the covering may split or crack. This could cause a major leak that will be detrimental to whatever is directly below the leak.
Fortunately, we offer and emergency leak repair service, and so will be able to help you out should this situation occur. Our team are fully trained to handle all roofing and leak-related problems, however, it’s best to try and avoid leaks altogether wherever possible.
