PVC roofing explained
PVC, or polyvinyl chloride, is a single-ply membrane utilized as a roofing solution. It’s made of two layers, and polyester scrim is added between layers to offer support and flexibility. The membrane is very malleable, enabling it to be easily modified for different rooftop sizes and shapes.
Hot-air welded seams are a significant benefit of PVC roofing systems. Seams welded with hot air can form a watertight and permanent bond that can be stronger than the membrane itself. This enables the PVC roof to become exceptionally durable, resilient, and impervious to moisture.
PVC makes for an excellent roofing material for buildings with flat and low-slope roofs, most of which are commercial or industrial. Here are the reasons why:
PVC is designed to outperform and outlast other roofing materials. The American Society of Testing and Materials, or ASTM, requires all roofing membranes to have a minimum breaking strength of 200 pounds for every inch. Roofing membranes made of PVC have an average minimum breaking strength of 350 pounds per inch, far exceeding the ASTM standard.
PVC roofing membranes have heat-welded seams that produce a watertight bond, making them extremely strong and resistant to degradation. This roofing system doesn’t rely upon tapes, adhesives, or caulk for sealing like shingle and tile ones.
PVC roofs are incredibly wind-resistant, capable of withstanding up to Category 3 hurricanes. They are heat-sealed, which eliminates gaps for wind to enter and create lift. This roofing system is a smart choice for buildings in regions that experience intense winds.
PVC roofs are tough to ignite and are resistant to harmful oxidation reactions. Topping your structure with a PVC roof adds a layer of fire protection to your home or business.
A lesser-known threat to the lifespan of shingle, tile, and some metal roofs is chemical damage. It’s a result of exposure to human-made products, acid rain, and decaying matter. PVC roofing, on the other hand, is resistant to chemical damage.
Many roofing materials are considered low-maintenance, but they can degrade prematurely from exposure to the elements. Metal roofs can rust, wooden shakes are susceptible to rot, and asphalt shingles experience granule loss after some time. These issues do not impact PVC roofing systems.
