PVC Performance

PVC Performance

Thermoplastic polyvinyl chloride (PVC) membrane roofing, also known as vinyl roofing, is the high performing, low slope roofing solution. For more than 40 years, durable, light-colored PVC roofing membranes have protected and helped keep buildings cool in climates around the world. PVC membranes’ inherent strength, waterproofing ability and fire-resistance make them a durable cool roofing material. Their long life cycle – and the associated lower energy consumption to both produce the raw material and process it into useful products – is a significant factor in their sustainability as a building product.



PVC roofing membranes can stand up to some of the toughest stresses and have been proven to support and protect roofs throughout the world. Learn more about this durable, high-performance low-slope roofing solution »
