Perhaps the biggest advantage of PVC roofing is its strength. It can last over twenty years and is able to handle more than the minimum required weight limit. The strength of a PVC roof is enhanced by its hot air welded seams. The seams also increase the moisture resistance of the roof by forming a watertight bond which is stronger than the material. The life of a PVC roof that is properly installed and maintained is about twenty years. The long life of the roofing system balances the initial costs. Another perk of PVC roofing is its resistance to chemical damage. Some roofing materials can be damaged by harsh chemicals and toxins. In addition to chemicals, PVC roofing is fire resistant. Combustion is not supported and PVC is difficult to ignite. It burns slowly and will extinguish if the source is removed. Strong winds have difficulty damaging PVC roofing. In fact, PVC roofing has been known to survive Category 3 hurricanes. The hot air welded seams are designed to be watertight and are able to withstand ponding. PVC roofing membranes also resist mold, bacteria, and plant roots. A number of eco-friendly benefits are associated with PVC roofing.
