What is Single Ply Roofing?

Single ply flat roofing systems comprise flexible sheets of synthetic materials that are manufactured to industry-approved standards and requirements to ensure exceptional quality. 

The waterproofing layer is either PVC or TPO membrane, which can be mechanically fastened, bonded or ballasted to provide lasting durability and strength in the face of diverse weather conditions and other common environmental influences. 

Single-ply membrane remains one of the most popular and reliable flat roofing solutions for construction and refurbishment projects across the UK. Here at Sage BEC, we are experienced installers of some of the leading single ply roofing systems with extensive system guarantees to give you peace of mind.

Single Ply Roof Systems

The systems that we use are high-quality, cost-effective products that can be laid quickly in almost all applications. It is recommended that Single Ply membrane roofing is laid to falls – the BBA recommendation is to aim at 1.5° fall to get 0.75° with building tolerances – however, this can be expensive and cause height problems. 

Mechanically fixed systems are not weather-dependent, so can be fixed all year round without the need for a naked flame during installation. Fully adhered systems, however, can only be laid at 5°C and surfaces need to be dry. 

Both systems will bond to concrete, screed and ply, and are available fleece-backed for enhanced aesthetics. Subject to stock and minimum quality, different systems come in a range of colours and finishes to suit your requirements. Excellent air seal can be achieved through single-ply systems, with a number of VCL/ air seal options depending upon your specific requirements.

Leading brand manufacturers constantly monitor their approved contractor network and remove those who do not meet their high standards. Each of their single ply systems requires residential course training for staff and installers, and they write a technical specification for every project. Their field engineers check every installation for quality and inspect the final construction prior to sign-off and approval of warranty, so you are guaranteed an excellent service when you choose an approved commercial roofing contractor like Sage.
