PVC Roofing: Definition and Benefits

Apr 9, 2020 | Roofing

Roofing systems are typically valued for their durability and ability to deliver higher solar reflectance (cool roofs), given the roof is the first protective layer against external elements that can compromise a comfortable living environment. In recent years, as technology continues to advance, new systems like ballasted roofs and vented tile roofs have been making waves due to their energy-efficient attribute.  There are many advantages to all types of roofing materials. But the more they can complement the overall style of your home, the more impressive it will be.

PVC or polyvinyl chloride roofing is a single-ply roofing solution that has incredible versatility when it comes to accommodating extreme temperatures. Using this trim is particularly beneficial to roofs that are flat or low sloped. 

To know more, roofing contractor Turner Home Improvement Contractors shares the main reasons why PVC makes a good suit for flat roofs.

Recyclable 

Thermoplastics, the main substance of PVC roofs, are 100% recyclable. Due to their flexibility, they can be molded into new products repeatedly, adding economic value to your roofing system and home. 

Reflectivity

Thermoplastic is a plastic polymer material that becomes moldable at certain high temperatures and hardens upon cooling and is able to repeat these processes. In other words, PVC roofs can adapt to varying weather conditions of extreme temperatures without affecting the efficiency of your air conditioning and heating systems. If you want to save on energy bills, contact your local roof and siding replacement company and inquire about this roofing solution.

High Flame Resistance

The chlorine element in PVC roofs disturbs the burning process, making the roofs poorly combustible and flame resistant.  This means that the chances of flame penetrating through the roof membrane and the roof collapsing or dislodging are very minimal.
