Mule-Hide Single-Ply Roofing Products

Empire Contractors offers single-ply roofing membranes from Mule-Hide, a trusted name in roofing since 1906. Regardless of project size, MHP commercial roofing systems can handle it – from fully adhered EPDM (rubber) systems to TPO and heat-welded PVC membranes, MHP has a solution for every low-slope roof challenge:

1) Mule-Hide EPDM

Mule-Hide EPDM is a great lightweight, flexible yet strong, single-ply membrane. It’s ideal for long-term waterproofing on new construction or retrofits. Mule-Hide’s rubber roof systems are highly resistant to ozone and UV and can handle the hottest summers and coldest winters Michigan can throw at them.

Can be fully adhered, mechanically attached, or ballasted, and comes in 3 options:

  • Standard black
  • Reinforced with polyester for superior durability
  • White-on-black for superior reflectivity and energy savings

2) Mule-Hide TPO

Mule-Hide TPO is easy to install, saving you time and money. It’s white surface naturally reflects up to 78% of the sun’s rays, reducing utility costs and heat buildup. It’s resistant to fire, ultraviolet light, and pollutants.

Like EPDM, Mule-Hide TPO can be fully adhered, mechanically attached, or ballasted, and it comes in 8-, 10-, and 12-foot-wide rolls.

3) Mule-Hide PVC

One appeal of Mule-Hide’s PVC single-ply roofing system is its ability to install quickly in one pass with a small, trained crew. Like TPO, PVC is highly reflective. Mule-Hide PVC is also flexible and lightweight yet strong. It stands up to repeated exposure to severe weather, high winds, building movement, and routine rooftop traffic. It can be fully adhered or mechanically attached.
