What Is PVC?
PVC roof material is composed of two main components: ethylene and chlorine. PVC roofing material is composed of two layers of PVC with a layer of polyester reinforcement between them. The top ply contains additives that make the membrane UV-resistant and therefore highly energy-efficient. 1st Class Roofing recommends Duro-Last® PVC Membrane for your next installation.
The Many Advantages of PVC
Here are a few reasons PVC plastic is an appealing material for commercial building owners shopping for a new roof.
- Affordability – The strength of PVC roof lends itself to a long life – at least 20 years, which means building owners will save on premature replacement.
- Durability – A PVC roof’s strength comes from hot welded seams, which create a durable, watertight bond, especially compared to other materials that use caulk or tape to seal seams.
- Damage Resistance – A PVC roof can stand up to just about any threat, including chemicals, fire, wind and water. The roofing membrane is hard to ignite, can self-extinguish and is designed to withstand hurricane-level winds and torrential rain.
- Eco-Friendly – PVC roofing membranes possess solar reflectivity, which reduce your building’s heating and cooling costs and its reliance on HVAC systems.
