Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) membrane roofing is also known as vinyl roofing. PVC is lightweight, durable, weather resistant, chemical resistant, and difficult to puncture. Because of its many benefits, PVC is starting to become a popular choice in commercial roofing.

Strength

JRC’s only utilizes the highest quality of materials that is true for our Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) Roofs. That means the PVC we use is very strong and can support up to 350 pounds per square inch.

Flexibility

Using a multi-layered additive design PVC roofing maintains its flexibility. The chemical makeup of the roof is naturally UV resistant, meaning that the roof will not curl and break due to heat! Add more flexibility by adding a top layer of acrylic coating to the roof membrane.

Durability

Even in harsh conditions and climates, this reliable roof membrane will hold strong. PVC is made from hot welded seams. This method of installation makes PVC membranes exceptionally strong, durable, and impermeable to moisture. 

Installation

To install the PCV roof system, JRC’s roofing team welds seams to form a permanent, watertight bond that is stronger than the membrane itself. This gives PVC roofs an edge over other roofing systems, which rely on adhesives, tapes, and caulks to seal the seams.

The PVC is attached to the optional roof board or insulation with one of two methods. 

The first is mechanical fasteners, the fastener is placed in the roof board or insulation and screws are placed through the material, in this case PVC and into the fastener. 

The second is a full contact bonding adhesive that is attached to the bottom of the PVC and laid down onto the building.
