J Ferg Roofing Pros – Single Ply Roofing
Single Ply roofing has a large amount of warranties. Single ply roofing includes TPO, PVC, and EPDM. They can either be mechanically fastened or fully adhered.
The roof layer is available in 45 mil, 60 mil, and 80 mil thickness. Single Ply is the only product in the marketplace to offer prefabrication of the entire roofing system.
Single-ply roofing layers have grown in popularity over the past 30 years. Because of their flexibility, relative ease of installation, and competitive price. Single-ply layers can be generally placed into two groups thermosets and thermoplastics.
Thermoset, are plastic synthetic materials that strengthen during being heated. However, they cannot be successfully remolded or reheated after their initial heat forming. The benefits of thermoset plastics notably improve the material’s mechanical properties. This means it is providing enhanced chemical resistance, heat resistance and structural integrity. Thermoset plastics are often used for sealed products due to their resistance to deformation.
Thermoset, and thermoplastics typically coincide together. Thermoplastics soften when heated and harden and strengthen after cooling. There are multiple thermoplastic resins that offer various performance benefits. Most materials commonly offer high strength, shrink-resistance and easy bend-ability. Depending on the resin, thermoplastics can serve low-stress applications. Such as plastic bags or high-stress mechanical parts.
