Fair Oaks PVC Roofing

Fair Oaks PVC Roofing Contractor

Your roof for your home or business has to be in top shape to adequately protect the building from the elements, extreme temperatures, and pests. Depending on your home or commercial building’s needs and the weather you experience, the ideal material for your roof will change. Polyvinyl chloride roofing material, or PVC, is a reliable and durable single-membrane roofing material that’s ideal for flat or low-slope commercial or residential roofing. PVC roofs are resistant to UV rays, chemical damage, and even fire.

At Noah’s Roofing, we are experienced at installing and repairing PVC roofs in the Fair Oaks and Northern California area. We use high-quality industrial materials for the job because we know how important a roof is to your home’s safety and integrity. We have been repairing, replacing, and installing flat roofs in our community for more than 40 years. We ensure your roof is made and installed properly.

What Is PVC Roofing?

PVC roofing membrane is made of two layers. One of these layers is polyester, made to support the membrane. It’s become increasingly popular in commercial buildings such as retail stores, industrial buildings, and warehouses. Like other single membrane roofing materials, it can be layered over your current roofing system to decrease labor costs and increase the energy efficiency of your building. PVC roofing can last for more than 20 years, thanks to its high durability.

Benefits of PVC Roofing

PVC roofing has several benefits to consider for commercial and residential buildings. This includes:

  • PVC roofing materials can last 20 years or more if properly maintained. The materials are resistant to chemicals, fire, rotting, corrosion, and extreme weather. The welded seams in PVC roofing make it particularly resistant to moisture and, therefore, very durable.
  • Environmentally friendly. PVC is made from recyclable materials and takes less energy to produce than other roof types. The material itself can be recycled and reprocessed as well. It also resists heat and can regulate the temperature in the building, decreasing energy costs and output.
  • Low maintenance. PVC roofs have low maintenance needs and require fewer repairs than other similar roofing materials.
  • Because PVC roofing materials are so light, they reduce costs and energy output for transport and installation.
  • Easier installation. In addition to being lightweight, PVC roofing materials are easy to install because they can be placed on top of certain existing roofs. They can also be cut and welded on-site to fit the requirements of the building.
  • Highly resistant. PVC roofs are resistant to chemicals, extreme weather, and fire. Industrial buildings that are exposed to chemicals could benefit from a PVC roof, as it will need fewer repairs and replacements than other materials. They are highly resistant to extreme winds, rain, and fire.
  • PVC roofs can be found in many colors and styles to fit your needs.

Not all PVC roofs are made to the same standard. To enjoy the benefits of a durable PVC roof, you want to ensure you’re getting high-quality materials and a proper installation from your roofing contractor.

How To Maintain a PVC Roof

A well-maintained roof will have less damage, better structural integrity, and protect your home or business for longer. Taking care of your roof will extend its lifespan. Here are some ways you can improve your roof’s maintenance:

  • Check for standing water. If there is standing or ponding water on a PVC roof, it will weaken the material and may seep through. This can cause water damage to that area of the roof and interior damage to your home or business. If unnoticed and left untreated, water damage can become very expensive.
  • Inspect flashing and seams. Damage to these areas where PVC connects can also lead to significant water damage if ignored. Check the welded seams and flashing on the roof after storms, and get repairs if you see any cracks, breaks, or loose pieces.
  • Frequently check for damage. Issues can develop on a roof anywhere, for reasons such as improper installation, extreme weather events, thermal movement, and even pests. Minor damage to PVC roofs can become expensive if left unfixed.
  • Ensure drains are unclogged. Whether your roof is flat or low-slope, a cause of ponding water may be an improper drainage system. Drainage systems should move water and debris off the roof quickly to limit the harm it can do to the material. If drainage systems are clogged up with debris, they are unable to do their job.


Q: What Are the Disadvantages of PVC Roofing?

A: Though PVC can be installed on certain roofs, it needs a clean and undamaged surface to be installed on. If the old roof is too punctured or covered in debris, a new roof will need to be installed first. This increases labor costs during roof installation. PVC can also be hard to repair if the material is too old, as the welding doesn’t hold as well on aged material. PVC is also not a good roofing material in cold environments.

Q: How Long Does PVC Roofing Last?

A: A PVC roof can last between 20 and 30 years if it is taken care of and well-maintained. PVC roofs are durable and resistant to chemicals, high winds, excessive rain, fire, and UV rays. Properly maintain them by fixing cracks or loose pieces before water damage affects the interior. Ensure drainage systems are preventing standing water.

Q: Is PVC Roofing Better Than TPO?

A: PVC is often more cost-effective than TPO, or thermoplastic polyolefin roofing, and it’s better resistant to chemicals and fire. TPO is stronger than PVC against breakage and tearing and doesn’t have the same issues in cold weather. TPO generally requires more seams than PVC because of its roll size, meaning there is more potential for damage at those seams.

Q: How Much Does a PVC Flat Roof Cost?

A: Costs of PVC materials depend on the thickness of the PVC membrane, the size of the roof, and how many joints or interruptions there are in the roof’s surface. If your roof has a lot of vents, chimneys, skylights, and other complex features, the installation will be more expensive than a simple, unobstructed roof. PVC roofing may cost anywhere from $4 to $12 per square foot, depending on these factors.
