What Is a Single Ply Roof?
When home or business owners want to take advantage of a roof’s surface area, they will often opt for low-slope roofs. Unlike typical steep sloped roofs, a flattened pitch is great for walking on or storing heavy equipment like HVAC units. However, this means that traditional shingles, clay tiles, or metal sheaths cannot be used to cover the roof. Instead, it is better to have a single ply roof installed. This kind of sheeting has an incredibly wide width, making it optimal for large surface areas. It is often made out of either thermosets or thermoplastics. The three most popular kinds include EPDM, PVC, or TPO.

Technically, it is still possible to have an asphaltic rolled roof installation for most houses or businesses with flat pitches. However, these kinds of roofs often have lots of seams, disrupting what should be an otherwise smooth surface. Single ply roofs have few of these cracks, making it easier to store or roll items. Additionally, no hazardous methods are required for installation, such as torching or applying heated asphalt.
Signs That a Single Ply Roof Needs Repairs
Single roofs are great on account of their convenience and flexibility. They are generally pretty tough as well, capable of withstanding a lot of wear from the weather. However, there will eventually come a time when these capable roofs need repairs.
Some of the most common examples of problems in a single ply roof include:
- Signs of bridging – Roofs made from a thermoset like EPDM are especially prone to shrinking. Eventually, the decreased area of material causes the roof to “bridge” at the seams and transitions. When the flashing of the roof has been exposed, it is time for rapid repair.
- Deterioration of the sheeting – Another major indication that a single ply roof is damaged is when the mesh scrim is fully visible. The roof may be able to be recoated, but only if this issue is caught right away.
- Warping or corrosion from chemicals or mineral deposits – Depending on the location, a building may be exposed to splashes of chemicals or acrid smoke. If the membrane is starting to become warped or distorted, reach out to a technician.
