PVC Roofing (Polyvinyl Chloride)

PVC is flexible roofing membrane manufactured using a UV-resistant Polyvinyl chloride. It’s designed for low slope roofing applications. The PVC membrane is reinforced with polyester fabric which creates a tear resistant membrane.

EPDM Roofing (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer)

EPDM is a thermo-set roofing membrane made from rubber-polymer and is often referred to as “rubber roofing”. This lightweight synthetic material has been a popular choice since the early 1970s for its long-term durability and low maintenance needs.

TPO Roofing (Thermoplastic Polyolefin)

TPO is the leading and most preferred roofing system product in the commercial sector for its resistance to ultraviolet rays, installation advantages, LEED points, and energy savings. TPO can be used in new construction and re-roofing applications.

SBS Roofing (Styrene Butadiene Styrene)

SBS modified bitumen roofing is a material made out of asphalt and synthetic rubber, making it an exceptionally flexible material for flat roofs. Thanks to its rubber composition, the material is less prone to cracking and sustaining damage from elements like ice and sun.
