When our commercial roofing customer in Richmond, Hampton Roads, Fredericksburg, and Charlottesville ask what type of roofing system is best for them we usually recommend single-ply. Why? Well, nothing can come close in terms of its versatility. It’s lightweight, extremely affordable, and offers an unparalleled flexibility most roofing systems can’t even come close to. Commercial and industrial, Single-ply provides the complete protection and durability that your business needs.
In addition, we’re certified with a number of leading manufacturers including:
- Firestone Building Products Co.
- Flex Membrane International, Inc.
Essentially, we know single ply and love working with it. Still not convinced? Here are 3 reasons to choose this roofing system.
1. It’s Easy to Go Green
According to Energy Star,
“Americans spend about $40 billion annually to air condition buildings – sixth of all electricity generated in this country.”
You might not be aware, but your roof does factor in to how much energy you use. The amount of heat or cold that is absorbed can have an effect on how much work your heating and cooling system has to do. We also carry single ply that can translate into Cool Roofs that can save you energy in the long run. According to the Department of Energy,
“Just as wearing light-colored clothing can help keep you cool on a sunny day, cool roofs material that is designed to reflect more sunlight and absorb less heat than a standard roof. Cool roofs can be made of a highly reflective type of paint, a sheet covering, or highly reflective tiles or shingles. Standard or dark roofs can reach temperatures of 150°F or more in the summer sun. A cool roof under the same conditions could stay more than 50°F cooler and save energy and money by using less air conditioning”
As hot as it gets in the summer, and in the coming spring, that can make a huge difference in your energy bill.
2. Handles Weather Well
Although it may be lightweight, single-ply has a great degree of flexibility in terms of climate.
3. Installation is Quick and Easy
No one likes a job that takes forever. Because single-ply is such a lightweight roofing material it makes installation simple. That way we don’t slow down or delay the work day for your business at all. It’s a quick and efficient way to get your roof in.
