Perhaps the single greatest advantage to single ply roofing is its energy savings. With a proper coating, the light-colored roof surface reflects heat and offers a significant reduction in energy use.

Over time, the reflectivity can translate into significant energy savings!

Three main types of single ply:

In addition to the energy savings, single ply roofing has other advantages:

Single ply roofs are low maintenance

The bonding of the layers makes single ply roofs incredibly durable as well as impact resistant. Its ability to ward off environmental challenges like UV rays, winds and chemicals, means single ply roof repair is rare, and that single ply roof maintenance is minimal.
