Why Is PVC a Good Flat Roofing Material?

Picking a suitable material for your roofing system is vital to avoid unnecessary expenses on roof repair or replacement. But how can homeowners choose the right material for their roof? Simple. Look for the advantages. A great example of this is vinyl or PVC roof membrane. This roofing material has a lot of advantages compared to its counterparts.

Vinyl roof underlayments are very effective when it comes to roof protection because of its properties. For one, the thermoplastic ability of vinyl makes it sustainable and flexible. It allows modifications on your roof that you won’t otherwise get with other materials. 

Interested? Here are other reasons why a PVC roofing material is a great substitute and replacement to your current roofing materials. 

Stronger Seams

Unlike other roof membranes, the seams of a PVC underlayment are welded, making them even more durable than the sheet. It doesn’t require tapes or adhesives to put the seams together, which can otherwise cause water leaks. 

Longer Lifespan

As mentioned earlier, thermoplastic materials are ideal for roofing as they can perform well against various weather conditions. You can maximize the strength of a PVC roof by ensuring that the installation process has been done properly. The right installation combined with its durability gives you 20 years of ensured lifespan – with a minimal need for roof maintenance.


Manufacturing and warehouse facilities could expose their roofing system with certain chemical elements that can cause early deterioration. Chemicals can damage roofing materials easily but not so with PVC. The composition of vinyl roof membranes made it resistant against harsh toxins chemicals.

I just wanna give a shout out to one of your guys who jumped out of vehicle to help me push my van out from 62 onto coker Butte this morning awesome job and thank you so much..

No hassles, no stress roofing contractor.

We've worked with a number of contractors over the years doing home improvement projects and I can say that, without question, working with Pressure Point was about as easy as it gets.

Everything about the project, from sales all the way to final inspection, went like clockwork and without a hitch.  They delivered more than they promised, on time and within budget.   We could not have been happier with their personnel, products and services.  Highly recommended!

I've changed my review from a 1 star to a 4 stars. Matt Stone got right on a pretty poor job done installing a skylight. He had his guys remove the skylight, move it, repair the roof and inside ceiling to its original state, paint it, repair some external trim that was damaged, and all within a few days after talking to him about the multiple problems. It was really an eyesore from the inside. I'd give a 5 star if this had been done well the first time. The skylight just didn't fit the space I first wanted it and was told it would. More communication about the potential problems might have allowed this to be done right the first time. But, Pressure Point Roofing gets 5 starts for making amends and correcting a pretty ugly problem, very fast! Thank you.

I needed someone to come out to take a look at a leaky roof. I contacted Pressure Point Roofing, Inc. and they came out the same day. They gave me a quote to fix the problem and I agreed to their terms. It was about 4PM and I knew they closed at 5PM but they stayed and fixed the leak at no additional cost. I was very happy and impressed. Would recommend them to anyone. Thank you Pressure Point Roofing for earning our families trust. Will definitely be doing business with you again.

Wouldn't be good if I didn't think the best of my own company right?!

I am so happy I chose Pressure Point to replace my 40-year-old roof.  The crew was professional, efficient, and answered all my questions, addressed the few concerns I raised, and made me feel comfortable, trusting them with such a big project.  I couldn't be happier with their work and the look of my new roof.
