Versatile, Flexible &
Easy to Maintain

Single-Ply Roofing systems are made up of sheets of various synthetic materials. Because of the elasticity and weather resistance of these materials, only a single layer of this material is needed to complete the roof, which provides effective protection for as long as 15 to 20 years plus.

There are several different methods for installing single-ply roofing systems. In the ‘mechanically attached’ method, we use screws and battens or reinforcement plates. The ‘fully adhered’ approach involves thoroughly gluing the sheets to the roof insulation. In other cases, single-ply roofs are ‘ballasted,’ an approach in which they are loose-laid and held in place by a layer of stone.

Single-ply roofing systems are generally faster and easier to install than other systems. Even so, to ensure effective waterproofing, proper installation is critical.
At R.D. Bean, we install three types of single-ply roofs: EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer), TPO (thermoplastic polyolefin) and PVC (polyvinyl chloride). To learn more, please contact us at 1-800-242-8736 or send us an e-mail.
