The majority of flat roofs use what is called a single-ply system. Single-ply is made for low sloping or flat roofs and has fewer seams than your standard asphaltic rolled roof system. They are typically easier to install, offer great protection, and plenty of styling options. Many business owners opt for a white color both for the professional aesthetic but also for the added benefits of reflecting heat away from your building and saving on cooling bills.
Short for ethylene propylene diene monomer, EPDM is a rubber roofing material about 45 to 90 mms thick. A professional roofing contractor rolls out the membrane and uses an adhesive to stick the material to the roof and prevent water or air leaks. EPDM is incredibly resistant to UV rays and corrosion from water or even acids or alkalis. EPDM is easier to install than many other options making it a very popular choice.
PVC is a thermoplastic material composed of two layers of plastic and polyester to create an incredibly durable and versatile roofing membrane. It is UV stable, flexible, and a very affordable option.
TPO is increasingly a more and more popular flat roofing option. Composed of polypropylene and ethylene-propylene, the material does a fantastic job of reflecting UV rays and withstands years of the weather's wear and tear.
