Single-ply Roof Membrane

What you should know About Our Single-layer Membrane Roof

As expert roofers and contractors, one of the most common flat roofing materials we use is Single-Layer roof membranes, suitable for lightweight, cost-effective rapid-track building projects. 

Single-Layer roofs have fewer seams compared to most roll roofing systems. Contractors are not exposed to harmful or dangerous torches during installation. Single ply roofing membranes also come with predesigned detailing accessories, which take a lot of trouble out of installation.

Generally, single ply membranes are one of the most installed roofing systems in Toronto.

From large-scale commercial ventures such as airports and warehouses to private house rooftops, they work well on a range of projects with roofs of all shapes and sizes, including bare roofs, green roofs, ballast roofs, cool roofs, and others.

Single-Layer membranes are a standard option because of the following:

 

  • Sustainable
  • Immune to fire and retardant to fire
  • Immune to Contaminants
  • UV and natural immune elements, such as dangerous micro-organisms
  • Environment-friendly

 

Among all the types of single-ply membrane types, the most popularly used are TPO and PVC roofing. TPO (thermoplastic polyolefin) and PVC (polyvinyl chloride) deliver excellent roof qualities and relatively low prices compared to other roofing systems. 

In fact, one of the questions we’ve ever gotten as a Single-Layer installer is which one of the ply membranes is better? TPO or PVC.

If you plan on installing any of these roofs, a comparative view between the two types will come in handy. You will see a clear picture of the features of each one, making your decision easier.

How We Install Single Ply Membrane

Single-Layer membranes may be installed using:

 

  • Ballasted Method
  • Mechanical Fastening Methods
  • Fully Adhered Roofing Methods

 

Mostly, the installation method used depends on the building and the specifics of the roofing project. In some cases, a ballasted roof would give the best results, significantly when more weight does not affect the building. 

However, in some cases where a roof has a 1/6” sloping, it is not the most effective method. 

For a steel roof or even a metal roof, an ideal type of installation would be mechanically fastened Single-Layer membrane roofing. Mechanically fastened membranes are usable on all kinds of roof slopes and are preferable in most cases. 

A fully adhered roofing needs the membrane to be attached using a solvent-based or a water-based adhesive. The finished surface is usually smooth and can be used with other colored membranes to improve the roofing system’s look.
