It’s no longer good enough for roofs to simply keep out the elements. Contractors and installers whose budgets and reputations are on the line demand more. Consumers who count on a roof’s performance day after day demand more. And communities who deal with constant reroofing waste in their landfills demand more - which is why so many are turning to a revolutionary multifunction roof system from IB Roof Systems. Developed and perfected in 1978, the co-polymer alloy, single-ply membrane-style roof system now has a flawless track record that spans nearly 30 years and numerous climates from Hawaii to Alaska.
The contractor’s choice. Contractors and installers love it because the prefabricated customized or standard flashings available for any size pipe or detail - even odd-sized protrusions - go on quickly using hot-air welding and reduce installation error. And because it surpasses ASTM standards for aging, chemical degradation, fire resistance, and microbiological resistance - and comes with up to a 25-year, 100 percent non-prorated commercial warranty and lifetime on residential - contractors know their reputations and profit margins are safe.
A customer’s dream. Customers love it because it’s virtually maintenance-free, lasts longer, and deflects 88 percent of the sun’s rays, keeping buildings cooler and reducing energy costs by up to 30 percent. One of the first installations in 1979 - 550,000 square feet in the Harrisburg School District in Oregon - lasted until 2007. The school estimates it saved $1,160,000 over the life of the flat roof.
Other customers appreciate the product’s exceptional versatility. Chase Gardens Medical Center in Oregon wanted to go green. While typical asphalt roofs are heavy, inefficient, and comparatively short-lived, IB Roof Systems’ membrane not only reduces energy consumption and takes toxic emissions down to zero, but creates an ideal platform for solar panels. Their project eventually incorporated 56 Solarsave™ Roof Integrated photovoltaic modules on top of the roofing membrane. Not only are there no penetrations into the roof, minimizing leakage risks that cause expensive disruptions and damage but both membrane systems are significantly lighter than traditional choices.
A community hero. Communities love it because it is 100 percent recyclable. So, whereas two asphalt roofs will end up in the landfill by the time one IB Roof System roof wears out, the added benefit is that the recyclable PVC material can be turned into additional high-quality consumer products, avoiding the landfill altogether.
