IB Roofing
Imagine that you no longer had to worry about your flat roof – no more leaks, no more repairs, no more headaches. IB Roof provides a solution to all known flat roofing problems.

What is IB Roof?
IB roof is a single-ply polyester-reinforced CPA/PVC membrane. IB's original design comes from Europe, where engineers of the Post-War era were faced with massive industrial and residential re-building. They had to create a roofing product that would last a long time while minimizing energy and maintenance costs. In 1978 IB Roof Systems took the original design improved it with the latest technological know-how's and created the ultimate roofing solution for both residential and commercial/industrial flat roofing market. In fact IB's formulation has not changed since 1979.

IB Roofing membrane features unique design, incorporation 100% virgin PVC in its formulation as well as '50/50 equal thicknesses' Top/Base film laminated to polyester reinforcement scrim (notice that competition's top film thickness does not exceed 35-40%). Top film and it's advanced formulation, is what makes IB's membrane long-lasting, by resisting the destructive powers of U.V. rays as well chemicals and substances that are normally present on flat roofs, and cause the degradation of the roofing material, resulting in costly leaks.

What make IB Roofs so unique?

  • Long-lasting, worry-free roofing
  • Complete Flat Roof-System
  • Energy-Efficient Cool Roof
  • Designed to withstand Ponding Water
  • Easy roof repair in any weather

IB Roofs have been in service since 1978 with zero material failure. The key to such an amazing performance is the way the overlapping seams are attached. Unlike conventional roofing systems, where adhesive is the key component as well as the major flat-roof failure factor, IB's seams are Hot-Air welded by precision Swiss-made welding equipment. Once the seam is welded and cured (which takes about 1-2 minutes), it cannot be broken without tearing the membrane. In fact IB seams are stronger than the membrane itself. Hot-air welding ensures that seams will never come apart, thus the integrity of the roofing system is consistent through-out its life-cycle.

Ponding water – leading cause of flat roof leaks. Not a problem for IB Roof

Ponding water is the leading cause of leaks on the flat roofs. In MA, RI and CT, as well as other parts of the US, with the old construction methods of 20th century, there are now thousands residential and commercial flat roofs exposed to leaks. Ponding water creates puddles on your roof that have no way to be drained due to short-comings of the original design and impossibility to create new drainage methods. This standing water destroys your roof by breaking the seams, saturating the insulation , and rotting the wood decking. Once water enters inside the building, it damages the structural components, ceilings and drywall, flooring, as well as electrical system. The combined costs of internal repairs due to roof leaks, may by far exceed the cost of installing a new IB roof.
