Polyvinyl chloride or PVC is a versatile material with many applications in different industries. Today, many commercial roofs are made from this material. Duro-Last® leads the way with its commercial flat and low-sloped roof products made with PVC, including Edge-to-Edge & Deck-to-Sky™ roofing systems.
Here are the reasons why PVC roofing is so popular.
PVC is a highly recyclable material. A roofing company that specializes in PVC roof installation will likely use recycled PVC. The material itself retains its thermoplasticity even after melting so it remains seamless all throughout its lifetime. While most roofing systems need to be disposed after some years, PVC can be recycled and turned into new materials, making it one of the most sustainable materials available today.
Most roofing manufacturers focus more on energy efficiency today than they did in the past. The thickness of insulation was one of the biggest factors in efficiency before, but as newer installation technologies surfaced, this took a step back in favor of better ballasting, adequate ventilation and roof deck adjustments. PVC flat roofing systems rate high in efficiency as well as compatibility with additional roofing constructions.
Lightweight and Durable
It’s important to choose a roofer who is experienced in handling PVC roofing systems. The installation process is a little different from other materials, thanks to its very low weight. However, don’t let its lightness fool you. PVC is as tough as roofing materials go and resistant to almost all common problems a flat roof faces.
