In the single-ply roofing market, PVC roofing membranes offer an impressive set of advantages, unmatched by competitors. In addition to its many benefits, PVC roofs are consistently chosen by home and business owners looking to install an eco-friendly system.
So What Are The Many Benefits That Make PVC Roofing Such An Excellent And Popular Choice?
The American Society of Testing and Materials (ASTM) requires roofing membranes to have a minimum breaking strength of 200 pounds per inch. PVC roofing membranes far exceed this standard, having a minimum breaking strength of 350 pounds per inch!
A properly installed PVC roofing system can last 20+ years with very low maintenance.
Resistance to Fire
PVC roofs have a substantial fire-resistance rating and self-extinguish when the source of flame is removed.
Resistance to Chemicals
PVC roofing systems are highly resistant to harsh chemical conditions. Additionally, unlike traditional asphalt roofs, fat from grease vents on restaurants will not have a negative impact on a PVC roof.
Resistance to Wind and Water
PVC roofs have incredible wind resistance. In fact, often PVC roofs have held up in Category 3 hurricanes. The membrane also remains watertight in extreme conditions and stands up to dampness, ponding water, and exposure to plant roots and bacteria. This makes it the best choice for low and especially high-rise buildings located in regions prone to strong winds and storms.
Its high solar reflectivity reduces energy waste, lowers monthly heating and cooling bills, and can be fully recycled into new roofing products.
