PVC stands for Polyvinyl Chloride and is often referred to as vinyl roofing. It is a single ply roofing option that could be ideal for your Denver, Colorado flat roof. It comes in various thicknesses with the standard being 50, 60, or 80 mils. Like an EPDM roof, a PVC roof can be installed via mechanically attached, fully adhered or ballasted. Contact your local Colorado roofer at (303) 353-1825 to discuss your PVC flat roof installation options. The mechanically attached method is fastened to the substrate using screw or another form of fastener. A fully adhered PVC roof is attached to the substrate using an adhesive and a ballasted PVC roof is secured at the roof perimeter and around penetrations. Regardless of the installation method selected all Colorado PVC flat roofs are sealed using hot air welding.
Although available in multiple colors, PVC typically comes in white as it is very reflective and energy efficient. PVC flat roofs are known for their durability in harsh weather and temperature, flame resistance, longevity, energy efficiency, low life-cycle costs, ease of maintenance, flame resistance, ease and flexibility of installation, low life-cycle costs, heat and solar reflectance and recyclability/re-use. PVC flat roofs have an estimated life span of 20 to 30 years and may be a great option for your Denver commercial building flat roof, a garage or a low-slope on your home. Give Roof Worx a call today!
