The single-ply roofing system is one of the most popular systems for flat or low-slope commercial roofs. It is cost-effective, strong, durable, and versatile. With differing chemical compositions, there is a benefit for just about any business or commercial/industrial building application.
Glick Roofing Systems specializes in single ply membrane systems and their restoration. With years of experience, we are happy to discuss your business needs and guide you toward making the best decision for your particular situation.
Single-Ply Membrane Options
There are several different types and styles of single-ply membrane roofing systems available. Each offers specific benefits for your building and your business. The Glick Roofing Systems experts would be glad to sit down and discuss which is best for you.
Fluid Applied EPDM. Our fluid applied EPDM is FM4470 approved membrane with testing putting this quality restoration system in a class of its own. Offering a Class A fire rating, extreme hail resistance, 2124% elongation and a wind uplift of Class 1-990, fluid applied EPDM is tough to beat, even in extreme weather conditions. Additionally, this system is proven to be a viable air and vapor barrier.
The fluid applied EPDM is lightweight and offers excellent adhesion for most roofing substrates. This eliminates expensive tear-off and replacement needs, and reduces both installation costs and environmental impact.
This system we often recommend for Mod-Bit, TPO, and EPDM flat roof restorations.
TPO. Technically known as Thermoplastic Polyolefin. This innovative material is composed of a combination of polypropylene, a chemical compound known for its elasticity and durability and ethylene-propylene rubber, which is a synthetic elastomer related to rubber.
Manufactured in sheets, TPO is rolled across your prepared roofing surface and secured to ISO board with mechanical fasteners. Seams between the sheets are reinforced and heat-welded together.
TPO is known as a cost-effective single-ply roofing system option for commercial and industrial buildings. Strong, durable, and long-lasting, TPO is compatible with most roofing substrates.
TPO is known for being energy efficient, with a reflective surface that repels solar heat away from the roofing surface. This reduces heat buildup within your building, and reduces both your utility costs and HVAC loads.
PVC. Also known as polyvinyl chloride, has been in use for commercial and industrial roofing applications since the 1960s. With a long history of providing high levels of waterproofing protection.
Composed of a synthetic plastic, PVC offers a lower percentage of oil and petroleum products than either TPO or EPDM. This chemical compound is extremely flexible, allowing it to move in conjunction with thermal fluctuations on your roof surface.
PVC is a robust material offering high levels of protection against chemicals, environmental contaminants, water leaks, and UV rays. Thanks to its cool reflective properties, PVC is resistant to damage and discoloration from solar radiation and is both Energy Star and Cool Roof rated.
