Single Ply Roofing

Quick, Convenient, and Consistent

If you have heard the term “single ply membrane roofing”, it is likely because you are in need of repairing or replacing your commercial roof. Understanding the difference between the two main types is important so that you can make the selection that best suits you. When it comes down to it, single ply membranes are essentially sheets of rubber as well as other synthetics that can be mechanically fastened, ballasted, or chemically adhered to the insulation. This creates a layer of protection for your commercial facility. Even though single-ply roofing is one of the more well-known types of commercial roofing material, there are choices to make when it comes down to your facility’s needs and budget. If you have any questions about whether a single-ply roof is for you, reaching out to Texas Cool Roofing & Waterproofing is a great first step. For years, we have been serving the greater Austin, TX area. We aim to provide exceptional service to each customer because that is the pride we have in our quality and business.

Different Types of Single-Ply Commercial Roofing Membrane

What are the different types of single ply membrane and which one is for you? The two main types for this style of roofing are ethylene propylene diene terpolymer (EPDM) and thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO). Their main differences lay in their energy efficiencies, how they are installed, and their chemical makeup.

EPDM

This single-ply membrane consists of a synthetic rubber compound in order to give it greater flexibility. This type of single-ply membrane has been used for commercial roofing facilities going back to the 1960s and is considered to be a time-tested option. Despite its familiarity and trusted history, EPDM currently is used in just 20% of the commercial roofing market. There are several thickness options to choose from and white/black for the color, though the EPDM generally results in a darker gray or black as a natural color. This is not good for reflecting UV rays and keeping out the heat.

TPO

This is one of the fastest-growing systems in the commercial roofing market today. TPO is made up of a single layer of reinforcing synthetics that can be used to cover flat roofs. TPO is generally the more accepted option because of its reflective properties. That means it keeps UV rays out, allowing your building to remain cooler with less help from your building’s HVAC system.

I highly recommend Texas cool and roofing. I had Cody come and do an inspection. I was amazed at all the damage that was done by the hailstorm. The ladies in the office, Nancy and Stormie were in constant contact with our insurance and made this process less painful.

Matthew was also fantastic, he came by making sure all work was done properly and to answer questions .Thank you Texas CoolRoofing,you have a very satisfied customer.

Today I met with Denny Satterfield. What a breath of fresh air this guy is. He listened to my nightmare story of our roof replacement 3 years ago. He got on the roof and calked some areas he found. I insisted I owed him something, but he said he did not feel right paying for what he did. I mean.....WOW! Talk about CUSTOMER SERVICE! He was gracious enough to take a cold water from me when I offered it to him.Texas Cool Roofing has earned our business from here onward. Next roof replacement, this is the superb stellar company we will go with. No questions asked with the call and impression they mad on me today. Highly recommend this company to anyone and everyone! They know what good customer service is and how to treat people.THANK YOU DENNY! Was a pleasure meeting you. What a great, genuine, honest man.
