About Glastonbury, CT PVC Roofing
Like TPO roofing, PVC roofs are highly reflective if installed in light colors. Since pure white is more likely to appear dirty, many people choose to install tan, gray or off-white vinyl roofs. And if you are looking to save on energy costs, PVC membranes are a great choice for you. The typically light color is a very efficient roofing option. The surface of shingle or other dark-colored roofs can increase the roof temperature as much as 90 degrees under the sun, which translates into higher electricity bills when the heat is absorbed into the interior. But light-colored roofs usually only increase as much as about 25 degrees in direct sunlight.
In addition, trim from PVC’s manufacturing process can be 100% recycled and reused to make new membranes. The membranes don’t lose their thermoplasticity over time, so they can be easily modified to make room for solar panels or new equipment, and are easy to perform routine maintenance on. However, the manufacturing process of PVC is slightly worse for the environment than other roofing materials, such as TPO, due to the hazardous fumes released in the process.
PVC roofs can last decades and decades without their performance being affected. Vinyl membranes can also be used in waterproofing applications for roofing. This is a common technique used in association with green or planted roofs.
