PVC roofing is known for its strength, durability, and energy efficiency. In addition, PVC roofing often requires less maintenance than other flat roofing materials. One of the key factors in the strength of a PVC roof is the welded seams. The heat-welded seams allow the PVC membrane to resist leaks and wind damage. In most cases, PVC roofing protects buildings for up to thirty years. As the roofing ages, it is imperative to locate weaknesses and make repairs in a timely manner. Once the roofing loses much of its flexibility, it becomes more difficult to patch and maintain. A replacement is then necessary.
PVC roof replacement relies on proper installation in order to remain effective for its full lifespan. New PVC roofs can last twenty-five years or more. Some indications your PVC roof is ready to be replaced are cracks or holes in the roof. Often older PVC roofing is especially vulnerable to cold. In very cold weather, a crack can occur from slight pressure causing the roof to shatter. Older roofs also become more susceptible to punctures. Sharp branches or flying debris can tear the membrane and lead to leaks. If your PVC roof is exposed to asphalt of any type, your entire roof is at risk. PVC and asphalt should never be combined. If asphalt comes in contact with PVC, the PVC will become discolored, stiff, and age prematurely. Finally, a PVC roof that has poorly welded seams will need to be replaced. Seams that are not secure will allow holes to widen and water to seep onto the roof deck. When this occurs, you may begin to notice signs of leaking inside the building. Stained ceilings, bubbled wallpaper, and mildew are all indications that water has made its way through a weakness in the roofing.
