Let’s take a look at the many benefits of PVC roofing.
PVC shows excellent durability
When investing in a new roof, you want to get value for your money.
The durability of PVC repays your investment over the long years of its working life. The heat-welded seams create a robust roofing membrane. Such seams do not split under pressure from high winds, or even in hurricane conditions.
Durability is a critical reason why so many people choose PVC roofing membranes.
PVC membrane saves on utility bills
Any investment which can save you on utility bills has to be a benefit to your company.
The high solar reflective quality of PVC will keep your building cool during the hot months of the year. The sun’s rays will bounce off the roof, and you will not need to run the AC as much.
In the wintertime, PVC will help insulate the building, keeping the heat in and energy costs down.
Chemical resistance is another benefit
Outlets from kitchens emit fats, which solidify when they hit cooler air.
The droplets fall on the roof and do damage over time.
PVC roofing membrane has a high chemical resistance. The droplets will bounce off the surface without burning through the PVC. On a good, high-quality PVC roof system, a regular clean can safely remove any build-ups around the outlet. This is especially true for higher-end KEE PVC roof systems, where the effect of grease can have little to no impact on the roof system.
If your outlets emit chemicals, then PVC roofing is the best option.
PVC membranes are easy to install
PVC membranes are very flexible.
A contractor can install PVC on an odd-shaped roof without any problems. The same is true on a roof with a lot of outlets, piping, or air-conditioning units.
The installer cuts the PVC to fit around obstacles without compromising on durability.
PVC fits over most existing roofing systems—a huge benefit when it comes to time and minimizing disturbances.
