What are the benefits of single ply roofing?

Single ply roofing has become extremely popular over the last few years, not least because of the ease at which it can be installed. In fact, there are many different benefits to selecting single ply roofing. For example, this type of roof covering is also extremely strong, durable, resistant to UV damage and very cost-effective.

However, it’s important to understand that the key to applying a single ply overlay is ensuring that the existing roof system is professionally prepared from a reputable commercial roofing contractor. Ultimately, a roof survey may need to be undertaken beforehand to help identify and eradicate any trapped moisture. In addition to this, making sure that the new roof fixing method is compatible with the old roof build-up is also key.
