PVC is a type of single-ply roofing, frequently used for flat and low sloped roofs. It’s manufactured using ultraviolet-resistant polyvinyl chloride, also known as PVC. PVC is a popular material for commercial roofing projects, thanks to its strength, easy maintenance, and longevity. It also has exceptional durability, being highly resistant to fire, water, wind, and chemicals.
PVC is manufactured in different grades of thickness. A thickness of 40 or 50 milliliters is sufficient for residential properties, while a thickness of 60 to 80 milliliters is preferred for commercial projects. There are also add-ons available, like special deck shields designed to make flat PVC roofs safely walkable or membranes with added UV resistance.
If you are looking for a roofing option that can withstand harsh Colorado winters, requires little maintenance, and is environmentally friendly, PVC is a great pick.
PVC comes in flexible but durable sheets. Before these are affixed, we recommend installing an insulation board. This reduces heat transfer, the process responsible for warm inside air escaping a heated building in winter and hot outside air entering an air-conditioned building in summer. Insulation saves you money by cutting your heating and cooling costs.
The PVC sheets are attached mechanically to the insulation beneath it, using heavy-duty screws and plates. These hold the sheets in place, keeping them attached to the roof and in place even in the face of Colorado’s tough elements like wind, rain, snow, hail and ice.
To bring the different sheets of PVC together, we use a hot air welder. This makes the seams, the points where the sheets of PVC meet, perfectly watertight so you have a leak free roof that will last you for many years.
