PVC Roofing System

What is PVC?

PVC stands for “Polyvinyl Chloride.” PVC is a great single-ply roofing solution.

PVC is composed of two basic components: chlorine derived from common salt and ethylene derived from natural gas. It's made from a lower percentage of oil and petroleum than thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO) or ethylene propylene diene terpolymer (EPDM). Due to the membrane being lighter colored, it reflects heat instead of absorbing it. PVC can be made rigid, flexible, or semi-flexible by taking these two components and adding other elements. This is why PVC is considered one of the most versatile plastic materials.

Why PVC?

PVC (polyvinyl chloride) single-ply membranes have provided dependable protection and proven performance since the 1960s, making them a popular and economical choice among roofing consultants and specifiers. PVC’s resistance to chemicals, grease, fire, and punctures make it an ideal choice for a wide variety of buildings. 

Rigid as a pipe or pliable as a sheet good, PVC is a true performer. PVC is surprisingly strong and stable. Because of this, it can be installed by heat welding the seams, as opposed to other membranes that require adhesive or utilize a taped seam. 

This installation method allows a PVC roof to expand and contract with a building. PVC can also be sealed with solvent welding and attached to metal flashing and other components with adhesives. This robust material also offers protection against chemicals, water leaks, UV rays and fire.
