PVC Flat Roof
Okay PVC actually stands polyvinyl chloride, but we reckon for your flat roof, it really does represent the perfect value covering that looks great.Maybe you are planning an exciting home extension or taking your living room into the garden with a conservatory, transforming your sleeping arrangements with a loft conversion including spectacular dormer windows. Then PVC flat roofing is the ideal.
PVC has been protecting and waterproofing the flat roofs of European homes for well over 40 years. With millions of square metres of the stuff being rolled out and installed on just about every type of flat roof you could imagine, it continues to dominate the single ply market.
There is a vast array of PVC products available. At Flat Roof Repair Dublin we will not only provide the most advanced and innovative materials best suited to your individual needs, but also the most affordable too.Being single ply you only need to apply one layer of the membrane. That’s a great time saver compared with the more traditional method that involves building up layers of bituminous felt. .
On timber roof decks the membrane can be fixed using a high speed mechanical fixing system with steel screws and large retaining discs running along the edge of the material that’s then overlapped by the next piece. These joints are neatly hot-air welded together. There’s no need for any flame –throwers so it’s perfectly safe for everyone. The seams are permanent; in fact they can be even stronger than the membrane itself.
Long Lasting Performance
PVC flat roofs are renowned for their long-term reliability. They are highly flexible so if there is any movement of your roof deck they can stretch to accommodate it and maintain complete watertight effectiveness. If you’re worried about the next ice age they can retain their flexibility even right down to 25°C.
Tackling the other temperature extreme the membranes are solar reflective with excellent resistance to harmful UV rays. They are also vapour permeable allowing the roof to breathe so there can be no trapped moisture to cause any blisters and subsequent damage.
Maintenance isn’t going to be a problem, just a quick look maybe twice a year to make sure everything is as it should be. Or if you haven’t got much of a head for heights, we’ll be happy to pop back anytime to give it the once-over.
And should the unthinkable happen, PVC will extinguish itself in the event of a fire.
Fancy Trying Something Different?
Because of its formulation, PVC flat roofs are resistant to chemicals and micro-organisms, and being both root and rot proof they make an excellent base for any green roof aspirations.
