Commercial PVC Roofing
PVC or Polyvinyl Chloride is the third most produced plastic polymer behind only polyethylene and polypropylene. It has many uses including prevalent applications as piping in municipal and industrial settings. PVC can also be manipulated into a more flexible sheet of material that is regularly used in commercial roofing.
This roofing system is a viable option for many properties and is highly resistant to many of the factors that cause issues with single-ply roofing membranes.

PVC Roofing Membrane Advantages
PVC roofing membranes are sometimes referred to as vinyl are a combination of the chemicals ethylene and chlorine. During the production process, other materials are added to PVC to enhance certain features that serve its roofing purpose. These various additives include plasticizers, biocides, UV light inhibitors, color pigment, heat stabilizers and fiberglass or polyester reinforcements. With the addition of these chemicals, PVC roofing membranes become resistant to water damage, UV light degradation, high winds and fires.
PVC roofing membranes also consist of a polyester reinforcement scrim that is in between two layers of PVC sheets. The polyester reinforcement scrim makes the finished membrane stronger and more durable, allowing it to offer protection for your property for a longer period.
