Why Commercial Building Owners Choose PVC Roofing

Posted by First Quality Roofing & Insulation on Jul 12, 2023 3:02:54 PM

Shopping malls, sports stadiums, and convention centers are large-scale examples of commercial structures with PVC roofs. But PVC roofing is also suitable for smaller commercial buildings and facilities, offering the same durability, cost-effectiveness, and customization options as it does for its sizable counterparts.

First Quality Roofing provides Las Vegas business owners with first-rate PVC roofing services that help them save money over the roof’s lifespan, spend less time on maintenance and repairs, and reduce their environmental impact by avoiding adding waste to landfills.

What is PVC Roofing?

A polyvinyl chloride roofing system is a single-ply membrane widely used in industrial and commercial structures. Durable and versatile, it’s prized for its excellent weather resistance and long lifespan. The synthetic plastic polymer is typically reinforced with fiberglass or polyester for added strength.

PVC comes in rolls of varying thicknesses and is adhered or fastened to a roof’s substrate. It forms a continuous, watertight layer that protects a building from water infiltration, chemicals, and other environmental factors, including UV radiation.

The Benefits of PVC Roofing for Your Las Vegas Commercial Building

One of PVC roofing’s key advantages is its exceptional durability and longevity. It’s resistant to cracking, peeling, and degradation, and its high puncture resistance makes it suitable for roofs with high foot traffic, excessive debris, or extreme temperatures like those we see in Las Vegas.

Other advantages include:

  • Energy Efficiency. PVC’s inherent reflectivity helps reduce heat absorption, keeping your building cooler and reducing the demand for air conditioning. This can result in lower energy costs and a more comfortable indoor environment.
  • Low maintenance. PVC roofs require minimal upkeep and cleaning, saving commercial building owners and managers time and resources. Routine inspections and occasional cleanings are typically all you need to keep the roof in good condition.
  • Versatile design options. You can also customize a PVC roof with various colors and designs, matching the roof to your building’s architectural style.
  • Cost-effectiveness. Smaller commercial buildings with budget considerations can choose PVC roofing as an attractive combination of performance and affordability.

The PVC Roofing Installation Process

Each PVC roof installation is different depending on the manufacturer and the project requirements, the typical process includes:

  1. Inspecting the existing roof to ensure it’s structurally sound and suitable for PVC installation. Any necessary substrate modifications like repairing leaks or reinforcing weak areas are made at this stage.
  2. If required, insulation is installed on top of the roof deck to improve energy efficiency and thermal performance.
  3. A vapor barrier might be installed to prevent moisture penetration.
  4. The PVC membrane is rolled out on the roof and trimmed to fit. Technicians then adhere or fasten it to the roof deck.
  5. The membranes are seamed together to create a watertight seal.
  6. Flashings are installed to provide additional waterproofing in vulnerable areas.
  7. Details like roof edges, transitions, and penetrations are sealed.
  8. A final inspection is performed to ensure the roof meets industry standards and the manufacturer’s specifications.
