What is PVC Roofing?
Most people are familiar with hard PVC piping used in home plumbing or other DIY projects, but with modern advancements in plastics, PVC (polyvinyl chloride) also makes an excellent roofing material. A little chemistry is needed to turn hard polyvinyl chloride into a flexible plastic sheeting, but PVC roofing material is state of the art, composed of two layers: a white UV resistant layer on top and a black flexible plastic layer for heat transfer. PVC roofing is popular in Europe and gaining traction in the United States as well.
