Plastic
  • 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.
