Single Ply Roofs- TPO and EPDM
We are a flat roofing contractor certified in Single ply roofing systems, installed by a certified roofing contractor like MidSouth Construction. Flat roof systems are the best choice when the building structure needs a lightweight roofing system, structural movement is anticipated, an existing membrane is in place that needs to be covered, or extreme cold temperatures are present. Flat roof systems can be installed with an EPDM or TPO roofing system. Both are excellent flat roofing systems with their own special attributes to consider.
EPDM Flat Roofing
EPDM is a resilient roofing system that is exceptionally strong. We are a flat roofing contractor with experience in EPDM flat roofing. It is one of the best solutions that is affordable, sustainable and energy efficient. When installed correctly, an EPDM roof has an average life span of 20-30 years or even longer! We are a certified roofing contractor and can install an EPDM flat roof on your commercial property that will provide years of maintenance free protection!
EPDM roofing is commonly referred to as a rubber roof. An EPDM roof is a single-ply roofing system and has many advantages over other commercial roofing options. It remains flexible at extreme temperatures and can be installed quickly. EPDM material resists deterioration from exposure to ultraviolet radiation.
An EPDM roof can be mechanically fastened, ballasted, or full adhered. Commercial contractors have been turning to the EPDM roofing solution for more than a half century. The easy installation and low maintenance requirements has helped the EPDM roof gain industry wide acceptance. MidSouth Construction is a commercial roofing contractor experienced and certified in EPDM flat roofing.
EPDM is also a popular roof system for commercial property owners for many reasons:
- Installation requires no open flame or heavy machinery
- Lightweight resulting in less weight on the building structure
- Versatile in all temperatures – flexible in cold and resistant to heat
- Low Maintenance
- Long life of 20-30 years
- Protection against UV radiation
- Resistant to rain, freezing rain, hail, snow and wind
- Quick and clean installation
- Energy efficient – Available in black or white
- Low Cost
- Less Seams
- Can be installed in a wide range of temperatures
As a top flat roofing contractor we have installed numerous TPO flat roofs. TPO roofing is a single ply membrane roofing system similar to EPDM. A TPO roof has the same benefits of an EPDM roof but has some additional characteristics. A roofing contractor can install a TPO roof and it can be heated and reshaped numerous times which makes it stand apart from an EPDM roof.
A TPO roof is often referred to as a seamless roof and is comprised of a single ply membrane using thermoplastics. The edges of a TPO roof can be fused or melted together forming a tightly bonded seam. This is different from the EPDM membrane which is seamed together using an adhesive product.
TPO roofing is also available in a wide range of colors compared to EPDM which is available in black or white. We are a commercial roofing contractor certified in all types of TPO roofing.
Built Up Roofing (BUR)
Built up roofing systems have been used for more than 100 years and are commonly referred to as BUR or “tar and gravel” roofs. A Built-up roofing system (BUR) is one of the oldest and most durable systems available. BUR systems are comprised of multiple layers of bitumen and a reinforcing fiber called ply sheets or roofing felt. The bitumen used in built up roofing can be asphalt, tar or cold adhesive.
The number of plies in a cross section is referred to as the number of plies on a roofing system. The bottom base sheet, can be mechanically fastened but a BUR is generally considered to be adhered if applied directly to the roof deck or insulation.
A built up roof, or BUR, is easy to repair and resistant to damage that can be caused by hail, wind and snow. The surfacing materials used on a BUR can be many different components such as gravel, glass-fiber or mineral surfaced cap sheets, hot asphalt that is mopped over the entire surface, elastomeric coatings, paint, or aluminum coatings. Surface coatings provide additional benefits of lowering heating and cooling costs when a reflective material is used to reduce the impact of UV radiation.
Elastomeric Roof Coatings
Many commercial roofing contractors are not experienced in elastomeric roof coatings. We are a roofing contractor that is experienced in all types of roofing, including Elastomeric coatings! Commercial roof repairs can sometimes be accomplished with Elastomeric roof coatings! This is a liquid that is spray-applied and cures to form a seamless elastomeric membrane designed to seal and protect the entire existing roof. The energy efficient reflective product can help reduce building temperatures. This durable product is virtually undamaged by extended exposure to solar ultraviolet energy. Ultraviolet rays actually enhance curing.
An elastomeric coating is designed to protect and waterproof all types of existing commercial roofs including metal, copper, PVC, wood, transite and even concrete roof substates.
Elastomeric coatings come in a wide range of colors to meet your specific commercial roofing needs.
Some of the many benefits of an elastomeric coating are:
- Green Solution – Installs over existing roof
- High durability
- UV Resistant
- Green solution to re-roofing
- Energy efficient
- Cost effective
- Provides waterproofing
- Resistant to hail impact
- Flexible below freezing temperatures
- Adheres to various substrates
- Low Maintenance – Can last as long as 20 years

Frequently Asked Questions
A commercial roof can be a traditional pitched roof comprised of shingles, slate or type. But, we typically think of commercial roofing as a flat roof system. Flat roofs are most commonly covered in BUR or Built-up Roofing, Metal Roofing, Modified Bitumen Roofing or Mod-Bit, EPDM or Thermoset Roof Membrane and TPO Thermoplastic Roof Membrane also referred to as PVC.
TPO has become the most common single-ply flat roofing product on the market for many reason. A TPO membrane is durable, flexible, energy efficient and cost effective. A properly installed TPO flat roof will provide 25 years or more of low maintenance protection at an affordable price.
Lots of factors will determine how long a new commercial roof will actually last. But, in general you can expect between 10-50 years of life expectancy depending on the commercial roofing product used. A properly installed TPO flat roof will last an average of 20 years.
