Learn How to Increase the Life of Your Single-Ply Roofing

January 8, 2020

For many commercial buildings, a single-ply roofing system is an excellent investment. At CD Beiler Commercial Roofing, we install single-ply roofing systems that are leak-proof, energy-efficient, and durable in any weather condition.

 

Our single-ply roofing is useful in covering or fixing existing TPO, vinyl, and EPDM roofing systems. This roof system also works well on new construction buildings. Read on to find out more about the versatility and durability of a single-ply roofing system, and learn how to increase the life of your single-ply roof.

Choosing the Right Color

 

At CD Beiler, we only install the Flexion single-ply membrane roofing system from Conklin because of their commitment to high-quality standards. This white, reflective, and energy-efficient single-ply roofing system can reflect 83% of the sun’s harmful UV rays. UV rays can cause physical damage to the roofing system and increase your cooling bills during the summer.

 

Choosing the Right Insulation for Your Roof Deck

 

Just like choosing the right material for your roofing deck, selecting the right insulation material is also essential. As a building owner or facility manager, you may already know that you have the added protection of insulation. However, it is vital to research the type of insulation your roofing system currently uses.

 

Installing the correct insulation type can protect your building from changing temperatures, prevent damage from unwanted moisture, create an air or vapor barrier, and may even help prevent problems from damaging storms.

 

Choosing an Appropriate Width Membrane

 

Single-ply roofing membranes come in different sheet widths, and the width you install depends on the size of your roof. Make sure you consult your local commercial roofing contractor to help determine the best option for your building.

 

What’s going to work for someone else’s roof may not work for your commercial roof, so it is best always to consult a professional roofing company.

 

Regular Inspections

 

Taking the time to have your roof inspected regularly can help detect or prevent problems early on. Since your roofing system is an investment for your commercial building, getting on a regular maintenance and inspection schedule will increase the lifespan of your single-ply roofing system.

 

Test and Secure Weak Areas

 

Any area where the single-ply roofing material connects to something—seams, joints, drains, or vents—will potentially weaken over time. Since you might not be able to tell which areas have damage, it is best to have a professional roofing company test and secure weakened spots in your roof.

 

Inspect Seams

 

Seams between single-ply membrane sheets are especially susceptible to weakening over time. Even with professional installation, you should have these seam areas inspected regularly. Regular inspections may save you money down the road.

 

Locate Any Punctures

 

Strong winds and other storm-related conditions, like hail or fallen debris, can cause punctures in your single-ply roofing system. Since any structural damage can cause problems inside the building, it is crucial to fix these problems right away.

 

Check for Loose Terminations

 

The termination bar on your roofing system seals the single-ply membrane roofing around the edges. Properly installing and maintaining terminations can prevent leaks and internal building damage.

 

Taking Proper Climate & Weather Precautions

 

Our single-ply membrane roofing system carries a Class A fire rating and can withstand any weather climate—offering durable protection against wind, rain, heavy snow, and hail.
