The Benefits of Vinyl in Roofing

If you’ve frequently dealt with any commercial roofing products, chances are you’ve heard a thing or two about vinyl. Many of our products at Jaco Roofing are made using Duro-Last vinyl, and you’d find a similar breakdown at many commercial roofing contractors.

But, what makes vinyl such a beneficial product for roofing? Let’s take a look.

Energy Efficiency

Vinyl roofing helps reflect solar power back into the atmosphere, meaning the roofs will not absorb heat and transfer it into the building as often as other materials. Instead, the roof protects the building from heat absorption. This will translate into lower energy costs from air conditioning and cooling.

In addition, vinyl membranes are made of a renewable raw material. They can be recycled into new membranes, which increase lifespan.

Lifespan

Vinyl roofs can last up to 30 years or longer with proper care. Vinyl membranes are made to be highly resistant to things like chemical, environmental and even fire damage, and they require very little maintenance. Rotting, leaking and other forms of corrosion are virtually unheard with vinyl products, and they protect homes located at risk areas.

Cost

Because of the durability and energy efficiency, there are generally very few cost concerns with vinyl roofs. High energy efficiency increases household savings over time, and the long life cycle means fewer expenses in the roofing areas. Installation is simple and quick, with no additional hoops to jump through or old materials to remove first. If you’re looking for a practical and cost effective material, vinyl is a great choice.
