The built-up roofing systems are no longer a go-to option in the roofing industry anymore. What was once an industry leading system has now been replaced by an effective, durable, affordable roofing option – single ply roofing. These low slope systems are now covering millions of square feet of roof nationwide.
If you’re in need of a new roof, be sure to ask our team about the single ply options that are available to you. Or, if you already have a single ply roofing system and are in need of repairs, we’d be happy to help as well. As a full-service contractor, Capital Coating can do it all. If you’re ready to have an expert inspect your Sellersville, PA property and give you reliable singe ply roofing options, call our team at 717-442-0979.
Types of Roofing
The term single ply refers to a broad group of roofing materials. The most common would be EPDM, PVC, and TPO. Each one boasts their many benefits, but also a few negatives as well.
For example, EPDM roofs have been shown to last up to 50 years. They’ve been the most widely used throughout the country, but they have a dark surface. The surface absorbs the heat instead of reflecting it. However, these are the most affordable of the single ply types.
TPO is the “next best” in terms of single ply roofing. Its white, reflective surface does not absorb the sun’s rays, instead it reflects up to 85% of them. But TPO is a bit more expensive, and it’s a newer product on the market.
PVC is the cream of the crop. It is perfect for roofs that are exposed to acid rain or chemicals. This system is also white and reflective and will help with energy costs. However, it is the most expensive option on the market.
How to Choose
Don’t worry. You won’t have to make this decision yourself. When you work with Capital Coating, we’ll work with you to determine which single ply roofing option is the best for your needs.
