Commercial TPO Single – Ply Roofing System MN
A typical low-slope roofing system consists of three components: a structural deck, a thermal insulation barrier and a waterproofing membrane, which consists of reinforcing fibers or fabric sandwiched between two sheets of flexible matrix. The matrix material is either asphalt- or polymer-based. In “single-ply” membranes, the matrix is made of flexible polymer. The reinforcement provides dimensional stability for the membrane as well as strength to resist stresses in service. It is generally made of chopped short glass fiber strands packed in a mat, or continuous polyester fiber arranged in a grid or in a non-woven mat.

Maintenance of our homes is a part of life. Whether a result of storm damage or just plain old aging, we have to at some point perform maintenance on our roofing or siding. The key is to catch any damage to your roofing “before” it becomes problematic. Damage that goes unrepaired is a nightmare waiting to happen. The longer the roof damage persists, the more it will affect your home potentially causing a larger repair costing you more money.
