Abstract: Use of single-ply roofing systems has become much more prevalent in the last several years. Those systems can offer many advantages, including lower cost, ease of installation and maintenance, lack of hot kettles, and fewer odors during installation. But, just like any roofing system, single-ply roofs can fail prematurely if not properly designed, installed and cared for. Understanding common sources of single-ply failure can help facility managers best address those issues before a small problem turns into a huge headache.
