Thermoplastic polyvinyl chloride roofing, also known as PVC or vinyl, is one of the most high-performing low-slope roofing systems due to its durability and sustainability. In modern vinyl roofing, thick woven fibers, called polyester scrim, are used to reinforce and improve its weatherization and prevent damage from extreme temperatures, wind, and rain. Roofing PD offers professional vinyl roofing repair and installation so your roof stays protected from all the elements.
Vinyl roofing is sealed together by heat-welded seams. These seams create a lasting watertight bond which results in a very strong, durable system that protects your residential or commercial property from rain, snow, and ice. PVC is also fire resistant due to the chemical composition. It’s difficult to ignite and tends to burn slowly, which makes it a great choice for flat roofing systems.
Because vinyl roofs typically come in white, they are extremely sun reflective. Over 70% of the solar radiation that is absorbed in the building is emitted back into the atmosphere . This means that air conditioning costs in your home or commercial building tend to be lower than with traditional roofing systems. Vinyl roofing is made from renewable, raw materials and can be recycled at the end of its life cycle to manufacture new PVC roofs. Roofing PD offers vinyl roofing repairs to keep your home as energy efficient as possible.
No roof is completely immune to damage, however. In cold temperatures, older vinyl roofing that is not reinforced with the polyester scrim can crack and shatter. It’s also important not to combine vinyl roofing and asphalt shingles. Doing so can cause premature aging, discoloration, and other damage to both the asphalt shingles and PVC. If you have a cracked or damaged PVC roof on your home or commercial property, our expert roofers provide the most professional and thorough vinyl roofing repair.
