Single ply roofing systems have become one of the UK’s most popular flat roofing materials. It’s a versatile, durable and impressive solution that comes with a lot of different benefits. If your project has weight and load-bearing considerations then single ply roofing is perfect – not only is the membrane durable and weather resistant, it’s also exceptionally lightweight. It resists tears and punctures while only weighing around 3kg per metre. On top of all of this, single ply roofing is incredibly quick and easy to install roofing solution. This makes it one of the most cost-effective roofing methods out there. The benefits of single ply waterproofing include: 


-UV resistant

Installation Methods


Ballasted roofs have grown in popularity recently. The unique aspect of them is that they allow the roof to be fully used as a living space. Ballasted roofs can be turned into green roofing, brown roofing, stone, paved, and much more. One of the reasons we love ballasted roofing is that it is versatile, attractive, and still waterproofs your roof. 

Not only does ballasted installation allows your roof to be used as a leisure area, it also naturally provides heat insulation and sound reduction. While ballasted roofs aren’t used in areas of high wind and with a hurricane threat, they are excellent for UK roofs. 

Mechanically Fastened

One of our single ply roofing installation methods is to use fasteners to secure your roof. Mechanically fastened single ply will work on just about any type of roof deck, whether wood, metal, concrete or anything else. 

How many fasteners are used depends on the type of deck that you’re using. Particularly lightweight decking might require narrower sheets and more fasteners to ensure that nothing is damaged or blown away. Mechanically fastened single ply roofing is great for buildings that experience a lot of wind, such as exposed buildings and tall buildings. 

Fully Adhered

When it comes to fully adhered single ply roofing systems, you’re dependent upon the substrate that you’re adhering the membrane to. That’s because you’re not relying on fasteners and plates – you’re essentially just glueing the membrane to the substrate. Fully adhered systems are somewhat situational, but can be a very economical roofing solution. 

Fully adhered single ply waterproofing is great for concrete, and it is known for providing phenomenal wind resistance and durability.

Case Study: Manchester Arena Roof Refurbishment

Working alongside SMG Europe to provide robust single ply waterproofing services to the Manchester Arena was both a pleasure and a challenge. Having the opportunity to deliver a full roof refurbishment to one of the UK’s busiest and most famous venues is something we are extremely proud of here at Protech Roofing, and we are extremely satisfied with the results.


This full roof refurbishment project presented several challenges. This included constructing new parapet detail to fully encapsulate with a Sarnafil membrane – all while the building was still fully functioning. It was vitally important to the client, and the management team at the Manchester Arena, that our services did not interfere with business as usual. This was perhaps our biggest challenge on this project.


Our experienced staff were able to overcome these challenges using wide-ranging technical and industry knowledge. Having direct contact with the client also ensured these challenges were alleviated and that communication was unbroken throughout this single ply waterproofing project. Drone and roof surveys were utilised throughout the discovery and planning phase, to give us the best possible start and understanding of what was required.

One task that proved to be more difficult than the rest was the detailing of the existing walkway. Our team had to work around solid structural supports – a task that required a fair bit of patience to say the least!


We completed this project in three months – on time and to an immaculate standard. The Manchester Arena is amongst countless other properties that make use of the UK’s most popular flat roofing material.

The Manchester Arena roof will also benefit from:

  • a versatile, durable and eco-friendly single ply waterproofing solution
  • a durable, lightweight and weather resistant membrane
  • resistance to tears and punctures
  • being UV, fire, rot and age resistant
