How Leaks are Caused in PVC Roofs
PVC roofs usually have a 25 to 30 year life span. If your roof is running out of time on its lifespan you can certainly expect leaks. PVC tends to shrink over time. This will cause the PVC to shatter or dry out. That, in turn, will cause leaks. Other things that will cause leaks are poor installation and physical damage. Unfortunately, poor installation is a common problem in the roofing world. This is something that we see (and fix) often.
Physical damage to the membrane of your roof may not always be visible on the surface. Our professional roofers will determine the cause of your leak and explain your options.
Advantages and Disadvantages of PVC Roofing Systems
One of the main advantages to the PVC roofing system is the length of its life. This is partly due to the fact that PVC material has no adhesives that could fail like EPDM rubber roofing.
The downside of PVC is that it shrinks over time. This is coupled with the fact that aged PVC is difficult to repair. This is more of a reason to have a professional do you PVC roof repair. An amateur could find themselves in a very difficult situation trying to do these repairs themselves.
