Commercial Single Ply Systems
Single ply roofing is an alternative to built-up roofing, or BUR, and as the name implies, is applied in a single layer atop the substrate, insulation and cover board. Built-up roofing is applied in many layers, building up as it goes, hence its name.
The main types of single ply roofing are TPO, PVC, and EPDM, sometimes called a rubber roof. Though the chemical makeup is different between them, the positives between the two are fairly similar, and each has its given benefits.
One of the major differences between these two types of single ply roofing is one step of the installation process. When it comes time to attach the membrane (roofing material) to the core board, it can be fastened, attached with an adhesive, or ballasted. With EPDM, the seams of the membrane are joined with special tape. With TPO or PVC roofs, the seams are actually melted and fused together with a hot air gun.

Benefits of Single Ply Roofs
There are many benefits to choosing a single ply roof. Some of the most notable are:
Price point - Single ply roofing is more affordable than some other types.
Energy efficient - Choosing a TPO roof that is white can mean your roof starts to work for you, deflecting rays from the sun, and keeping your building cooler. This means less AC is needed to keep the place comfortable, and your energy costs can go down significantly.
Fire resistant - These can be manufactured with fire retardant chemicals when created. This allows them to achieve a rating of UL Class A fire resistance.
It’s proven - In use for more than 60 years in the US. There are no surprises as to its safety or capabilities.
Lightweight - These systems don’t put a huge strain on your structure.
