Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC)
Tens of thousands of commercial buildings are protected by billions of square feet of Polyvinyl Chloride roofing membranes. And PVC’s popularity is growing — for good reason. PVC’s popularity stems from its dependable heat-welded seams, and its resistance to high temperatures, intense UV, water, chemicals, grease, fire, and physical damage.
PVC also has the benefit of being energy efficient. A properly insulated PVC roof system can help building owners reduce energy costs.
Whitco Roofing works with all of the top-tier PVC manufacturers, including Carlisle-Syntec, Fibertite, GAF, Duro-Last, Johns Manville and others. These industry-leading manufacturers have decades of experience developing the most dependable single-ply products available.
Benefits of PVC Roofing Systems:
- Incorporates a strong polyester reinforcement giving the membrane excellent tear, breaking and puncture resistance
- High solar reflectivity and “cool” roof features
