TPO membranes are produced in thicknesses ranging from 45 to 90 mils and have become a popular choice in recent years as they can be more energy efficient due to the reflective nature and associated energy efficiency of white membranes. PVC membranes are also heat welded single ply membranes, and are typically produced as a white sheet similar to TPO’s.
Single ply membrane roof details:
Single ply roofing membrane systems combine both polypropylene (plastic) and ethylene-propylene (rubber) using state-of-the-art polymer manufacturing technology. The result is an ideal residential roofing system that is reliable, cost effective, energy efficient and easy to install.
Our line of products offers a comprehensive line of single ply roofing solutions. TPO single ply roofing, and PVC roofing membranes all deliver excellent weather ability and long-term strength and flexibility, as well as excellent resistance to punctures and tears. In addition, our membranes are exceptionally resistant to chemicals, grease and UV light. With All Weather Roofing single ply roofing membranes; there are many choices to suit a variety of applications and needs.
As part of a cool roof solution, our white TPO and PVC roofing membranes deliver high reflectivity and emissivity without an additional coating. This will keep your building cooler, reduce energy consumption and power bills, and minimize the “urban heat island effect”. Many systems meet the EPA’s Energy Star® guidelines and could qualify for LEED® credits in several categories.
Most any roofing membrane will do a good job in the short term, but most customers want roofing requiring little maintenance over time. If you’re looking for that kind of long-term, carefree performance, always specify a roofing membrane containing TPO or PVC. Our roofs will give you years of reliable protection against any leaks.
All weather roofing offer various thickness of membrane for your roofing needs. Our 60mil can be installed on your home for a little extra expense and comes with a MANUFACTURED BACK WARRANTY. No one else in the industry offers the 60 mil. It is your home and your choice. Ask your sales rep about our full line of membranes.
Single Ply roofing membranes provide a variety of materials to choose from. Their main characteristic is that they are designed to be installed in one layer. They also exhibit great flexibility and they are resistant to UV radiation. They are superior when compared to other products.
The seams on the single-ply membranes will be hot-air welded together to form cohesive laps. When thermoplastic (TPO; single ply) membranes cool, they return to their original material type. Two of the most commonly used thermoplastic single-ply membranes are PVC and TPO, both of them plastic-based materials. Thermoplastic membranes are usually manufactured to include a reinforcement layer, normally polyester or fiber glass that provides additional strength and stability.
Our single ply roofing products offer these characteristics:
- Excellent against acid rain conditions
- Excellent performance under dramatic weather changes
- Will not suffer major problems under the presence of chemical materials
- Wide variety of grades available to choose from(grades are the type of protection desire from the product)
- Lightweight product
- Excellent reflective properties
- Easy to install
- Economic feasible
- Environmentally friendly-can save the home owner as much as 30% on heating and cooling bill.
The current generation of TPO (thermoplastic poly olefin) and PVC (polyvinyl chloride) single-ply roofing systems have achieved an outstanding performance record in the low-slope roofing market. These single-ply membranes have been available and successfully performing in roofing applications for quite some time — well over 20 years. We have some roofs that have been on since day one of our company’s inception and that was in 1984. These roofs are still providing our customers with a quiet and great energy savings with a peace of mind that they do not have to worry about any leaks to their home.
30+ Year Performance
IB Roof Systems has active roofs that continue to perform in excess of 30 years while most other types of roof materials fail and need to be replaced nearly 3 times faster. And when a roofing system lasts longer, there is a significantly reduced need for raw materials, lessening the demand for manufacturing new products, diminishing the transportation needs to distribute those products, reducing the amount of construction waste of alternative roofing materials sent to landfills, and cutting energy usage needed to incinerate and/or recycle the spent product.
Lifecycle takes on a whole new environmental significance when looked at from this angle.
So before you look at what sustainable technologies you want to integrate, make sure you keep in mind the most important need of your roof. Look at your roofing material carefully. How long ago was it manufactured? Is there documentation of how long the material will last or has lasted?
IB Roof Systems has this proof — actual samples from a 30 year old roof prove how IB Roof Systems membrane will perform. IB Roof Systems membrane is the best choice to facilitate and be the backbone of any sustainable roofing technology.
