When it comes to flat roofs, there is a wide range of materials you can consider for your home or business. But of them all, PVC (polyvinyl chloride) is arguably the most popular. In this post, trusted roofers from Renaissance Roofing will share just why PVC is a great flat roofing material.
Many roofers and property owners alike swear by PVC for the strength of its seams, making them leak-resistant. As a result, they are much better at preventing seam failure than other single-ply membranes. They can withstand any kind of weather condition, thus delaying the natural process of wear and tear.
PVC roofing can last for decades. This cuts down on maintenance and eventual replacement costs.
PVC is an eco-friendly flat roof option compared to a wide range of roofing materials available on the market. When PVC roofing finally ages, PVC membranes can be returned and recycled into new membranes. So you can be sure these materials won’t end up in the landfill or the ocean.
Ideally, PVC roofs are best used for flat roof structures with warmer weather. Due to their reflectivity, they are able to reduce the heat absorbed by homes so you won’t worry about higher energy bills. PVC comes in a wide range of light color options for higher reflectivity. Roofers often recommend roofs in lighter colors as these offer better reflectivity and performance.
Since PVC membranes are weldable throughout their lifetime without sacrificing thermoplastic capabilities, roof modifications for new equipment such as solar panels and other fixtures can easily be installed on your flat roof without damaging the membrane. They also remain thermoplastic and enable roof leak repair and inspection for routine maintenance.
