Lone Star Roofing would like to assist you in picking the right roofing system for your building. We offer many different types of roofing systems to fit every need. Single ply systems is one that has gained popularity in the past few years. First let us tell you a bit about it.

When you need a roof that is easy to install on even unconventional roof types, is water tight and easy to maintain, the single ply system is a great choice. The membrane is manufactured in sheets or rolls to exact specifications so the material is consistent over the entire roof. After the roof has been prepared –old roof removed if necessary–the sheets can be laid across the roof. Depending on the type of single ply, the material can be stapled or glued down and the edges fastened to the structure. The edges are sealed by adhesive, heat or other chemical means to give you a watertight seal over the entire roof.

Single ply systems offer advantages over many other roofing systems. Because the single ply membrane is flexible and light, it can be installed on many different types of roofs. Additives can be added to different types of membranes to make the material fire and chemical retardant as well as reflect UV light. In some cases, color can be added to match the decor of the building.

But best of all, the single ply system can save you money. Because the material reflects UV rays, there is less heat transfered into your building. This means that you can save money on cooling costs as well as qualify for tax credits.

This makes the single ply systems a great choice for many roofs in the Texas area.
