What is single ply roofing?
Single ply membranes have been in use in the UK roofing for over forty years and provide waterproof protection not only to very large buildings such as airports and supermarkets but also to private houses. They are based on polymers derived from oil that have been formulated for very long term flexibility and resistance to solar radiation.These are formed into large sheets that are 2.0mm in thickness and supplied in rolls 1-2m wide and up to 15m long.
How can you upgrade an existing roof?
Upgrade with additional insulation and new single ply membrane: depending on how well the roof is already insulated, the cost of installing extra insulation will generally be offset by savings on energy bills well within the lifespan of the new roof.
How can you use it?
Single ply membranes are secured down by heat welding and adhesions:
Special polyurethane adhesives are used to secure the single ply membrane. This method is used to insure the membrane can not come unattached to the decking layer. We then heat weld all joins, trims and up stands.
How long does it last?
UK experience is backed up by independent test which comes with a 20 years guarantee. This is achievable with good products, correct attachments and installation, which is why it is important to use an approved installer.
