When shopping for a new PVC roof, there are several points to consider. First of all, not all PVC roofing manufacturers are the same. We only work with the above mentioned because of their excellent products, service, and warranties. They make great commercial roofing products and they stand behind them with great customer service and warranties.
What's more, they've all been around the block. Mule-Hide, for example, has been making roofing products for over 100 years. Needless to say, they know what they're doing and they make excellent single-membrane roofing products.
PVC roof cost
The average cost to install a common, mid-range PVC roofing product is about $8.50/sqft. This cost can vary depending upon a variety of factors, such as the complexity and condition of the existing roof, the exact PVC product installed, among other things.

PVC options, features
Today, there are more PVC roofing options available then ever before. IB Roof Systems, for example, offers PVC membranes in 8 different colors, including white, tan, brown, red, grey, and green. Depending upon the manufacturer, there are either 20 or 30 year warranties available. Most PVC manufacturers offer membranes in 50, 60, and 80 mil thicknesses. Widths range from 3' to 10' with lengths ranging from 60' to 90'.
Note: The term "mil" is not an abbreviation of millimeter, but its own unit of measure. 1 mil is equal to .001 inches or .0254 millimeter. 50 mil = .05". 60 mil = .06" (1/16"). 80 mil = .08".
If properly installed, all pvc roofing products offer fire, wind, and chemical resistance, holds-up to standing water, and is energy efficient. Aside from your standard PVC membrane, which is already a great product, there's fleece-backed PVC, which is more resistant to tears and punctures. Polyester-reinforced PVC roofing membranes add more stability. Fiberglass-reinforced PVC also adds stability and is best in areas that experience extreme temperature fluctuations. PVC with KEE (Ketone Ethylene Ester) makes the roofing membrane tougher, more durable and more flexible, still.
Of these, we offer standard PVC and fleece-backed PVC.
New PVC roof installation
To ensure you get the most out of your new PVC roof, and to make sure it lasts as long as possible, a proper installation is important. A poorly installed roof of any kind or quality level can allow water leaks, can blow away, tear, puncture, etc. Finding a good commercial roofing company that will install your new PVC roof properly is easy. Just ask who they get their membranes from, then ask that manufacturer if that roofing company is eligible to apply for a warranty. If they are, that means that roofing company knows how to install your new roof correctly. If that roofing company is not eligible to apply for a warranty from the roofing membrane manufacturer, find a different commercial roofing company.
New restaurant roof
If you need a new restaurant roof, PVC is your only choice since it is the only flat roof product that's resistant to grease, animal fats, oils, and fire. (Did you know a PVC roof will self-extinguish once the source or fuel of the fire is gone?) That said, you have several PVC options, between colors, reinforced backing, ballast (weighted-down with rocks).
If your new roof won't be visible from the street, maybe you aren't considered about appearance. However, you're probably concerned about your electric bill. A light color, such as white, light grey, or tan will help lower your utility bill during the Summer, since those lighter colors will reflect heat away from your building. A dark color, such as black or dark grey, will absorb heat and help drive your cooling cost up, especially during the Summer months.
Although PVC is already a strong roofing product, a reinforced PVC roof membrane, such as with polyester, is stronger, still. Also, PVC KEE HP has an improved chemical resistance compared to standard PVC, which makes it a great flat roofing solution for restaurants and the food service industry.
