Dos and Don’ts of Single Ply Roofing

Single-ply roofing is one of the most common options when it comes to commercial and industrial properties. Naturally, property managers are tasked with an earnest desire to keep their roofs in good working order. Here are some great tips to help make that happen!

Initial Considerations

Even before the architect gets to drawing up the roof plans, there are some factors you should consider.

Design Considerations

A good roof starts with a good design, so make sure you have a professional draw up the plans for you. Here are some factors to consider.

Installation Considerations

However, the best roof design in the world won’t keep out the weather without proper installation. Here are some things you should watch for during the installation phase.

Maintenance Considerations

The key to the longevity of single-ply roofing is consistent maintenance. You’ll need to examine the roof periodically – at least twice per year and more frequently if you’ve had severe storms. Watch for the following things.

If you note damage, it should be repaired as soon as possible, preferably by the same team that installed the roofing system. If you must use someone else, make sure the company uses comparable materials and don’t mix membranes… i.e., TPO should be used to repair TPO. In addition, insist that the team use walk pads to repair and maintain the roof … by doing so, you’ll help avoid any additional damage.
