The Latest in Roofing Technology
We live in an ever changing world where technology is improving faster than we can keep up with. This technology has enabled us to better use recycled materials and other more environmentally designed products that make living in a home and working in the office safer and more environmentally friendly.
Because of the environmental and economic problems we are having today, having an eco-friendly home and business provides huge benefits. If you are planning on building a new office or thinking of replacing your roof, consider using the latest in roofing technology and go green.
A prime example of the use of recent technology is the Single Ply Systems and materials. It is a very high quality prefabricated system that is designed to maximize insulation and weatherproofing but minimize installation time. Most buildings are equipped with materials that use toxins such as glue or resins, but green materials use fewer toxins or none at all.
By going green with the singly ply materials, your roof will be able to better reflect ultraviolet rays and help keep the building interior cooler in the summer, reducing cooling costs. With a sustainable thermoplastic roofing system, you will also be able to eliminate tear off waste and cost. Not to mention, it is the environmentally responsible choice.
Single-ply roofing membranes have grown in popularity over the past 30 years, and due to their many benefits, it's no wonder that building owners and facilities professionals are interested. The advantages of using green materials, specifically single-ply membranes, include:
- Resistant to chemical oxidation
- Ease and speed of application
- Lightweight and relatively thin
- Cold applied without requirement of hot work certificates
- Environmentally friendly - high recycle rates.
- Clean installation and complete roofing solution
- UV radiation stable
- Long term low temperature flexibility
- Able to be welded to produce continuous waterproof sheet
- Weathering and heat resistant, the physical properties are retained over a temperature range exceeding -30 to +80 degrees centigrade.
- Lap security not compromised and resistance to sheer and peel
- Strong, flexible and durable membranes with long life expectancy greater than 30 years
