How PVC Roofing Works
Most PVC Roofing systems are mechanically fastened with screws and plates. The seams are overlapped and then welded. When the single-ply is welded, the material temporarily changes from a solid to a semisolid state, enabling the sheets that are overlapped to be fused together and return to a solid upon cooling, producing one continuous waterproof membrane.
Because it is lightweight, PVC Roofing membranes can often be installed over a dark built-up roof on an existing building, eliminating the need to dispose of old roofing into landfills.
