Single Ply Roofing?
There are many different options when choosing what kind of roof is better suited for you. Most residential and commercial roof owners are well aware that you can install a brand new roof over an old roof. Repairing a complete new roof by taking off the old one can be expensive in some cases. This is why some roofing companies result in overlaying with an insulation board. Using these materials, TPO membrane, E.P.D.M., modified bitumen membrane, and P.V.C. membrane, etc. will create a roof that will last about 20 years. TPO roofing, PVC roofing and EPDM roofing membranes all deliver excellent weather ability and long-term strength and flexibility, as well as excellent resistance to punctures and tears. In addition, PVC is exceptionally resistant to chemicals, grease and UV light. With single ply roofing membranes, there are many choices to suit a variety of applications and needs. Once you’ve reached the 20-year mark, you can go on and get a roofing company to tear off both roof layers and start from scratch.
These roofs are also known as Single-Ply room systems. The majority of building codes only allow two roofing layers. This will keep your building cooler, reduce energy consumption and power bills, and minimize the “urban heat island effect”. More than two roof layers can bring problems to your home and even bigger problems when it comes to replacing a 2+layer roof. In these cases, your roof deck and insulation must be dry in order to add the second roofing layer. Not every roof is capable of having a two-layer roof, which is why its essential to consult with professional and allow roofing company to take care of this.
This option may sound simple but there are numerous regulations, building codes, specific materials and special specifications. Cleaner, wider sheets, ease of heat welding and flexibility in a wide range of temperatures are all reasons why contractors like working with single ply. The inherent advantages of pre-fabricated sheets are the consistency of the quality of the products that are manufactured, the versatility in their attachment methods, and therefore, their broader applicability. All of these things are kept into consideration in this industry when roofing over. All in all, if you re financially able to, recommended is to replace a whole new roof. As you can tell there are different things that can damage a roof with lasting effects.
