Single ply roofing is a single layered roof membrane that is made of reinforced thermoplastic or thermo set materials. Single ply roofing is made in flexible sheets and when installed, is sealed at the joints in order to allow for continuous waterproofing. When used with appropriate insulation and support mechanisms, single ply roofing provides a complete roofing system.

All single ply systems are strong and flexible, and have a general life span of approximately 25-30 years. Single ply roofs are resistant to UV radiation, weathering, and chemical oxidation. They require no additional surface protection, and when painted in certain colors, can allow for both heating and cooling effects, making them very cost effective. Also, singly ply systems are made of recyclable, pure grade materials, which keep your house green.
