Whether you and your business care about a triple bottom line (people, planet, and profits) or just a single bottom
line, thermoplastic polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is a roofing membrane infused with benefits. Clients who’ve installed it
invariably discover that it’s a long-term, cost-effective solution. From an environmental perspective, it’s hard to
beat short of a living green roofing solution. With its Energy Star rating, and its highly reflective, recyclable singleply material, PVC is the obvious choice for environmentally sound roofing systems. Plus, with cool roof paybacks
and LEED credit qualification, the benefits just keep adding up. From a durability perspective, oil, grease, and
chemicals don’t like PVC’s highly resistant surface, and it’s incredibly easy to repair and maintain.
PVC is a solid option for restaurants, airports and commercial facilities with grease, oil, and chemical concerns, and
environments that experience dilute acidic effluents. White reflective PVC roofing panels have a surface that
provides a cooling effect that owners desire to provide energy savings in warmer climates. It has been tested in the
industry for more than 35 years and now meets the most stringent codes in a wide variety of climates.
Thermoplastic polyvinyl chloride membrane has a very affordable commercial life-cycle cost when compared with
other roofing membranes. As mentioned, PVC retains a high reflectivity value over time, offering continued energy
efficiency and optimal solar reflectance index (SRI). Roofs that are frequently exposed to grease or chemicals, such
as restaurants and food processing facilities, benefit from the protection afforded by a PVC roofing system.
Puncture resistance and strong seam bonding provide excellent waterproofing protection.
Put simply, PVC is engineered to stand the test of time. Durable, yet pliable, PVC is an ideal long-term roofing solution, available with fleece backing and in thicknesses up to 80 mil. The thicker the membrane, the greater its
resistance to breakage, tears, water absorption, and weathering. Manufactured to stringent standards, PVC
membrane comes with plasticizer bonding agents, polyester reinforcement, and UV protectants. And its large
membrane sheets mean it’s easy to install, with fewer seams in need of protection.
PVC can be fully adhered or mechanically fastened, and is suitable for use with the RhinoBond mechanical attachment system. Induction welding of PVC membrane electromagnetically seals the underside of the membrane
to specially coated plates in a grid pattern. For enhanced wind uplift resistance, a dense grid pattern is used. PVC is
suitable for new roof installation or as a cost-effective reroofing solution.
We have 15 years of experience with:
Single-ply roofing is classified as flexible sheets of compounded plastic-derived material that are used to cover and protect flat and low-sloped buildings.
TPO is the fastest-growing commercial membrane roofing system around and is on the forefront of single-ply roofing technology.
For over 50 years, EPDM has continued to be one of the most frequently used roofing materials on the market. Architects, consultants, and engineers continue to specify EPDM as a high-performance and energy-efficient roofing system.
Whether you and your business care about a triple bottom line (people, planet, and profits) or just a single bottom line, thermoplastic polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is a roofing membrane infused with benefits.
Modified bitumen is a very durable product, especially in high-traffic areas and when confined to smaller roof areas with a high density of service equipment.
For years, low-slope metal roofing has been a favorite roof covering for commercial and industrial buildings because of its reliability against weather conditions.
