PVC (POLYVINYL CHLORIDE) ROOFING
Thermoplastic polyvinyl chloride (PVC) membrane roofing (also known as vinyl roofing) is often used as an alternative to rubber roofing products. PVC is a durable roofing material that’s proven to withstand temperature cycling, high winds, structural movement, chemicals, and extreme temperatures. Primarily found on commercial and industrial buildings, PVC roofing is typically applied in sheets, with the seams welded together and sealed. PVC is especially resistant to harsh environments, making it a favorite choice for buildings around the world.
PVC ROOFING CHOICES
Not only does PVC roofing come in a variety of colors and thicknesses, it can also be installed several different ways: mechanically attached, fully adhered and ballasted. Regardless of how the PVC is installed, the seams are always sealed using a hot air welder.
PVC ROOFING COST
Although PVC roofing is one of the more expensive types of commercial and industrial roofing products available, it does offer one of the longest lifespans – about 25 years. Typically white, PVC roofing provides for great solar reflection, which reduces energy costs during the hot seasons. PVC can be installed over an existing roof, decreasing the overall cost of installation.
PVC ROOFING REPAIR
With completely hot welded seams, PVC rarely needs to be repaired. The material is also high weather and puncture resistance, which contributes to its durability and long life-span. However, to last its full lifespan, PVC roofs will occasionally require a few repairs. As always, it’s important to hire a contractor who’s familiar with PVC, so they can properly fix the leak and prevent any future problems.
PVC ROOFING MAINTENANCE
With the completely hot welded seams, PVC roofing maintenance isn’t needed as much as other flat roofing systems, but should be done every so often. If you’re in need of a maintenance check, hiring an expert will ensure the job is done properly.
