What's this roof material?


Recommended Posts

I've seen it once before. I ran it by a few roofers who work with TPO and PVC and none recognized it. I listed it as "plastic single ply membrane" in my report.

The stuff I saw had a grey layer of plastic on the bottom, a layer of scrim, and then a white layer of plastic on the top. All of the seams were solvent welded - some quite poorly. It could have been PVC or TPO - there's just no way to tell.

Of course, its most striking feature is the stunningly realistic image of shingles that's printed on it. During the inspection, while discussing the roof with the buyers, they asked what it was made from. I told them that it was a special plastic that was formulated out of sap from the Ugly Tree. Fortunately, they thought this was funny.
