PVC Roofing Systems

PVC or polyvinyl chloride roofing systems are one of the most popular options for a flat or low-sloped roofs. PVC, 

short for polyvinyl chloride, is a single-ply roofing membrane that is known for its longevity, durability and energy-efficiency. 

They’re also highly resistant to some of the toughest flat roof aggressors like fire, chemicals, and hurricane-level 

winds. PVC roofs also help to regulate building temperature and energy-use through solar reflectivity, especially due 

to their light-coloured appearance.

PVC roofing systems are extremely versatile as their material can be transformed into other products that are utilized 

for commercial roofing. They are also cost-effective as they can be installed directly over existing roof membrane. 

You will not only save on labour costs but, will also not have to worry about completely stripping the roof.

What is PVC Roofing Made of?

PVC roofing membrane is a single-ply membrane composed of two layers of polyvinyl chloride where polyester is 

added in between to act as reinforcement. Polyester reinforcement is added to achieve high tearing and breaking 

strengths necessary for mechanically fastened single-ply roofing systems.
