When running your business, the last thing you want to worry about is your roof leaking on your machinery, materials, or office equipment. Don’t let you inventory get damaged, and your office equipment destroyed by a leaking roof. If you own a restaurant, your customers will not appreciate the water dripping in their soup, or a puddle of water in the dining room. As a result, you may never see those customers come back again.
Get the longest lasting PVC flat roofing system with hot-air welded seam. There is no glue used in the installation and once welded, the two sheets of membrane become one.

Get materials and/or labor warranties of up-to 25 years, guaranteed by the manufacturer – IB Roof Systems. Learn more about the benefits of IB PVC commercial flat roofing.
Does your Commercial / Industrial / Restaurant roof leak?
- Do you have to install plastic covers or tarps to protect your expensive machinery?
- Does water damage your office computers and equipment?
- Is your product inventory being destroyed by roof leaks?
- Do you loose business space, restaurant seating, and production capacity due to your old, leaking flat roof?
- Does your black rubber or Tar & Gravel roof make the AC run continously, while it is still hot inside?
All of the above is true for these folks, and they are sick of it!
As you can see, they had to protect their VERY expensive machinery with plastic sheets just so water does not destroy it. Flat roof leaks can cause thousands of dollars in damages to equipment and merchandise alone. Consider redundant roof repairs and costs associated with future replacement rotted decking, wet insulation, and disposal of old roofing material. Add lost business productivity, equipment repair, replacement and damaged inventory. It is time to eliminate your flat roofing leaks once and for all.
The choice is simple – IB Single-ply Cool Roof
A leaky roof creates major problems for many businesses, in lost revenue, damaged equipment, and lost business space. We can help you stop those leaks once and for all with IB PVC Roof – our flat-roofing product of choice – and we will back it up with our comprehensive guaranty that you will not have any more leaks.
With Commercial warranties up to 25 years and a proven track-record of over 30 years leak-free performance, an IB roof will be saving you money on maintenance, repairs and energy costs. IB Cool roofs reflect over 90% of solar radiation and on a 90 degree day White IB roof will only go about 95 degrees. Compare that to 160-170 degrees for a black rubber ( Epdm ) roof.
IB ChemGuard – the only chemicals, oil and grease resistant roofing membrane available on the market will be the perfect choice for any restaurant or industrial manufacturing facility where chemicals may be present on the roof.
Most businesses require a lot of space to operate efficiently, and it just so happens that most commercial buildings have a flat roof. These flat roofs just leak, and there seems no end to these roof leak problems. Leaking flat roofs not only cause expensive repairs and structural damages, to the building – they can potentially halt some or all of your business’ production until leaks are fixed. Temporary loss of useful space can be more costly than the roof repair, and the damages to your production equipment may by far outweigh the cost to install a Long Lasting IB Flat Roof, which will not only remain water-tight beyond it’s warranty period, but will also save you money on the ever-rising Cooling and Heating bills. IB’s excellent ‘Cool Roof’ reflective properties can lower your AC energy consumption by as much as 20%, and with the addition of High-R insulation, it will be less expensive to heat your building.
Even ponding water is not a problem for IB Roofs.
IB Roof was created with the commercial / industrial flat roofing market in mind, and will work on the most complicated flat roof you can think of. If your flat roof has inherited water drainage problems, has devastating ponding water after every time it rains, it is no problem for IB. it comes with an explicit ‘Ponding Water Warranty’, unlike most other flat roofing systems, which will leak and whose warranty will be void if there is standing water.
IB Roofs are Eco-friendly – IB is the Green Choice!
Not only are IB roofs perfect for commercial buildings in terms of water-tightness, longevity and performance, they are also friendly for the environment. Cool roof features an IB white membrane that will reduce the CO2 and other Green-House gas emissions by reducing your energy consumption for Air Conditioning. An IB roof is also a perfect choice for creating a Green Roof or a Roof-top garden which in an Urban Environment will reduce the “heat island” effect and will increase the productivity of your office workers, as proven by multiple studies.
Another great feature of IB roofs it that they are 100% recyclable. This means 30 years from now, if you decide to get a new IB roof, the existing one will not go to our nation’s landfills. Instead, it will be recycled and reused for other PVC products such as vinyl siding, PVC pipes and conduits, etc.
