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:
-Rot and age resistant
-Fast and easy installation
-Durable against the weather
-Various installation methods
-10, 15 and 20-year guarantees

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.
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.
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.
