Single ply roofing systems are increasingly being used in the housing sector whether in new build or refurbishment. Examples range from contemporary new build low carbon homes which may also include green roof or renewable energy technology. Single ply roofing systems are also an attractive alternative for refurbishment of old traditional flat roofing materials, and can also be an economic and aesthetic solution to failed lead roofs. As featured previously, the versatility and durability of single ply roofing materials combined with their excellent sustainability credentials, are the reason for the rapid growth of the single ply industry in the housing sector.
The house builder or householder is urged to follow the SPRA guidance documents as listed on this site. As with most building materials offered in the domestic sector, we would urge that you strongly consider using SPRA members for any single ply roofing works. The single ply roofing sector has seen an increase in non-audited materials into the UK for which we cannot provide any support to the homeowner in the event of any issues.
SPRA works in close co-operation with the NFRC who recognise SPRA as the sole authority for our sector.
