Construction

PVC is a single-ply membrane. This material is not hard like PVC pipes due to the additions of plasticizers. This is a chemical component that allows PVC roofing membranes to be flexible.

 

Resistance

It is important to install PVC membranes over substrates that are compatible with PVC. The membrane has good resistance to chemicals, fire and wind.

 

Colors/Thicknesses

The most common thicknesses for PVC are 50mil and 60mil. PVC is provided in a range of colors but is most often offered in light (cool) colors for reflective purposes. Colors are usually an off-white so dirt doesn’t show as much.

 

Installation

PVC roofing membrane can be installed in 3 ways:

  • Fully Adhered
    • This method attaches the membrane to the substrate with a special adhesive.
  • Mechanically Attached
    • The PVC material is held in place by being attached to the substrate or roof deck with screws or other fasteners — this depends on the deck type.
  • Ballasted / Loose-Laid
    • PVC is laid loosely over the roof and secured along the perimeter and around penetrations — these can be pipes, air conditioning units, etc. The membrane is held in place with a ballast like river rock.
 

Service Life

PVC can have a roof life of 10 to 25 years. This material is recyclable, sustainable and has many decades of proven durability performance.
