With proper maintenance, a single-ply roof can last up to 50 years. EPDM, a synthetic rubber, will last 25-30 years or more. PVC membrane roofing delivers the best energy efficiency while lasting more than 20 years. TPO features great seam strength but lacks the flexibility of PVC. It will hold up well for 15-20 years.
Just how long your single-ply roof lasts will depend on many factors. Notably:
- System type
- Roof penetration
- Proper maintenance
Ponding, in particular, should be avoided to avoid having water seep under the roof surface. Bi-annual checkups for loose seams and flashing, as well as overall inspections after extreme weather, will help ensure the longevity of your commercial roof.
Installation techniques will vary somewhat based on each building’s unique characteristics. Fundamentally, we use a four-step process:
Single ply roofing delivers a host of benefits. It provides great insulation. It’s non-flammable. It’s lightweight and requires little maintenance. It’s highly energy-efficient. And it’s affordable and reasonably easy to install.
