- A modern roofing material, plastic slate is usually PVC or TPO.
- PVC is a thermoplastic polymer, while TPO is a thermoplastic olefin.
- Both are synthetically produced into plastic roofing to provide protection against
the elements and energy efficiency.
- Plastic roofing is specially designed to withstand pounding water, because it is welded together with hot air to remove all seams, which prevents the passing of moisture.
- Reflect approximately 90% of UV and other rays, it lowers heat absorption and heavily reduces cooling costs.
- It’s fire-safe and highly suited to low slope roofs.
- It’s not capable of holding high weight.
- Plastic roofing tends to shrink, which eventually causes leaks.
- Plastic corrugated roofing is the most common profile for plastic roofing and it is available in an extensive range of sizes, thickness, colors, and designs.
- When combined with Micro Sealant technology, plastic slate have a life span of up to 35 years, and can expand/contract according to temperature fluctuations.
- Plastic roofing is a more inexpensive option.
