Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) roofing membrane is a single-ply membrane that can be mechanically attached, fully adhered or ballasted. This roofing system is mainly used to eliminate any seams or joints in the roof. PVC membranes are attached to the roofing material with the help of heat welding. PVC roofs are stable under extreme heat or cold weather, resistant to the growth of any fungi and do not require much maintenance. They are highly resistant to winds and thus, last for a long time. PVC roofs are environment-friendly as they are recyclable and offer a highly reflective surface to keep the building cool in warm months. They are also quick to install.
Though PVC roofing has many advantages, you should not bring the PVC in contact with any asphalt material. If you need to install PVC with an asphalt-based product, consult our professional roofers.
