Pearson International Vinyl roofing membranes and other single-ply technologies have brought about revolutionary change in roofing specification and installation over the past 30 years, offering a clean, quick and safe alternative to built-up roofs with greater design flexibility.

This section will address vinyl's contribution to roof performance, design, installation and building energy efficiency, and will also discuss the manufacturing processes and environmental performance of vinyl roofing membranes.

“A white roofing surface gave us the reflectivity we needed to reduce heat gain within the building and the potential for the urban heat island effect.”
