Why Choose Single-Ply
Single-ply commercial roofing systems have been in use for well over half a century, although some have been around longer than others. They are generally recognized for being durable, lightweight, versatile, flexible, and functional. Contractors and customers alike prize single-ply systems for their ease of installation and maintenance.
While Great Lakes Commercial Roofing provides a wide range of roofing systems to choose from, we highly recommend single-ply for a number of reasons:
- Proven track record: EPDM, or rubber, is the single-ply material with the longest record of success. In fact, many 50-year-old rubber roofs are still in existence. TPO and PVC, though newer, are also promising in terms of longevity.
- Superior reflectivity: Single-ply membranes are either naturally white or come with optional topcoats to make them white and reflective. In some cases, up to 85% of the sun’s rays are bounced back, substantially lowering utility bills.
- Strong but light: If you are looking for a roofing system that won’t add significant stress to the building structure, single-ply is the way to go. It further alleviates any stress to the building with its superior flexibility – expanding and contracting as temperatures rise and fall.
Superior Single-Ply Products With Great Lakes
At Great Lakes, we invest in only the best, most time tested and proven single-ply products. That is why we use materials and single-ply systems from Conklin Roofing Systems, a leader in innovative roofing technology since 1977.
Great Lakes carries two top-tier single-ply systems from Conklin:
Flexion is Conklin’s premium PVC single-ply membrane, reinforced with DuPont Elvaloy and a 1000-denier, low-wicking fabric. Naturally fire resistant, it is durable and long-lasting, with superior resistance to grease and other chemicals. It is highly resistant to wind uplift, punctures, tears, leaks, and high temperatures, as well. This system comes with an optional 25-year warranty.
Hy-Crown is made with Dupont Hypalon, a CSPE synthetic rubber that is extremely tough and has proven to outperform other systems in some of the harshest environments around the world. Advantages include: unmatched resistance to standing water and leaks, great performance in all climates and temperatures, lightweight construction, easy maintenance, chemical resistance, and more.
