PVC Roofing Sheets

There are several situations where a PVC roof might be more appropriate than other roofing solutions. In low-slope/flat roof applications where ponding water may occur over the life of the roof; PVC systems will maintain watertight integrity. PVC membranes are inherently fire resistant making them a cool roofing material, slow to catch or spread fire, and is self-extinguishing when the source of the heat or flame is removed. PVC roofing membrane is more flexible than TPO and is sometimes preferred due to ease of handling in colder weather. Another key parameter is PVC retains its weldability for its entire life, allowing new membranes to be welded to the older membrane at any time.

Commercial Roofing Contractors Replace Flat Roof with PVC

The Coakley Brothers moving and storage service in Milwaukee, WI was in need of a roof replacement after their existing roofing was neglected and the decking was beginning to rot from the moisture buildup. The old roof leaked so severely that the structure of the building was becoming exposed to rainwater and ice formation. Roofed Right's team of designers created an in-house tapering system to channel water towards roof drains and eliminate standing water. A PVC membrane provides a long-lasting solution with additional resistance to moisture.

Benefits of PVC Roofing

PVC roofing is a durable, low-maintenance, and energy-efficient option that provides many benefits for commercial buildings, including: 

  • Durability: PVC roofing is known for its long lifespan and resistance to UV rays, extreme temperatures, and weather conditions.
  • Abrasion Resistance: PVC roofing has high abrasion resistance, meaning it doesn’t scratch or puncture easily. 
  • Waterproofing: PVC roofing is fully waterproof and can provide a high level of protection against rain, snow, and other moisture.
  • Energy Efficiency: PVC roofing is reflective, which means it can help to reduce energy costs by reflecting heat away from the building.
  • Fire Resistance: PVC roofing is non-combustible and has a Class A fire rating, which is the highest possible.
  • Lightweight: PVC roofing is lightweight, which makes it easy to install and can reduce the load on a building's structure.
  • Low Maintenance: PVC roofing requires very little maintenance, which can save time and money compared to other roofing materials.
  • Aesthetics: PVC roofing is available in a variety of colors and styles, which makes it a good choice for business owners who want to improve the look of their building.
  • Low Injury Risk: Compared to other popular roof materials, PVC is less likely to cause injury during installation. 



Maintenance Services for PVC Roofing

PVC roof maintenance is vital for extending the life of your commercial roof. Single-ply roofing systems are subject to wear and tear, which is why it’s important to have a commercial roof maintenance plan in place. Basic PVC roof maintenance includes:

  • Regular inspection: Regular inspections can help to identify any potential problems early on and prevent minor issues from becoming major repairs. Inspections should be performed at least twice a year and after any major weather events.
  • Cleaning: Keeping the roof clean is important to maintain its appearance and prevent the growth of mold and other organisms. Use a soft-bristled brush and mild detergent to clean the roof as needed.
  • Repairing damage: Any damage to the roof (like soft spots, separations, wrinkles, cuts or punctures) should be repaired as soon as possible to prevent leaks and minimize the risk of further damage. Repairs can be made using patches or by welding the damaged area.
  • Sealing seams: The seams of the roof should be sealed to ensure a watertight seal and prevent leaks. Re-sealing should be performed every 5-10 years or more frequently if necessary.
  • Removing debris: Debris such as leaves, twigs, and branches can accumulate on the roof and block drainage. Regular removal of debris can help to prevent water damage and prolong the life of the roof.
