For Your Durable LIFETIME IB Low Sloped & Flat Roof Solutions
IB Roof Systems are single-ply membrane systems appropriate for flat or low-pitched roofs where metal roofs cannot be used. This is a superior substitute and replacement for EPDM/rubber roofing technology. Roofing membranes need to perform 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. They are exposed to UV Rays, rain, snow, hail, standing water, micro organisms, chemical pollutants, vast temperature changes, wind and dynamic flexing, etc. The expectations of single-ply membranes should be that the membrane:
- Is a waterproofing sheet
- Must remain waterproof throughout its service life
- Must be non-flammable
- Must comply with building codes
- Must be easy to work with and repair
- Be pliable at different temperatures (especially extreme cold)
- Be weldable
IB Roof Systems has had roofs installed for over 28 years without one material failure. The secret to IB Roof Systems success is their formulation, enabling the company to engineer the perfect blend of polymers and elastomers to give you a roofing product that has already proven to withstand some of the harshest environments from Alaska to Hawaii. This means that IB Roof Systems membrane will keep your building dryer longer, save you money in damage and repairs and give you the longest lasting roofing system available today. IB Roof Systems offers up to a 25-year warranty on commercial buildings and a lifetime warranty on all residential projects. All accessories, flashings, vents, the roofing membrane, even the screws and plates that attach the roof, are covered under the longest comprehensive warranties offered in the roofing industry.

1.) IB Roof Systems warranties do not exclude “ponding” water.
2.) IB Roof Systems formulation is more resistant to contaminants that will collect on flat roofs.
3.) All IB Roof Systems warranties are 100% non-prorated.
4.) IB Roof Systems is the only single-ply membrane with a residential lifetime warranty.
5.) IB Roof Systems is the only single-ply membrane with a transferable residential warranty.
6.) IB Roof Systems has never had a failed roof system.
7.) IB Roof Systems is the sole specification on all McDonaldÂ’s Restaurants in the Puget Sound region.
8.) IB Roof Systems requires no maintenance programs to maintain 100% warranty.
9.) IB Roof Systems utilizes hot air welded seams as opposed to chemically activated hot air welded seams. This creates a physical weld as opposed to a chemical weld.
10.) IB Roof Systems membrane is 50/50 top film and base film. This makes the product easy to weld and has a substantial thickness above the scrim.
11.) IB Roof Systems membrane has 60% elongation which allows it to flex and move with the building (industry requirement is 15% elongation).
12.) IB Roof Systems membranes have been performing from Hawaii to Florida with no failures.
13.) IB Roof Systems membrane reflects most of the UV Rays that strike the roof surface. Heat Gain Comparison illustrates that on an 85-degree day a regular smooth black roof would heat to 172-degrees, while the IB White Membrane only warms to 91-degrees.
14.) IB Roof Systems has an in-house engineering department. IB Roof Systems can engineer applications to exceed 120 mph wind uplift.
15.) IB Roof Systems membrane is non-curing, therefore the membrane will remain weldable for its service life.
16.) IB Roof Systems membrane is manufactured by the largest thermoplastics manufacturer in North America, to IB Roof Systems specifications, giving IB the last word in quality control. This alliance also offers IB the largest liability insurance policy in the single-ply industry.
17.) IB Roof Systems has the only single-ply roofing membrane in the industry that is designed after the ASTM chemical containment liner standard. ChemGuard is the only single-ply membrane in the industry that has no exclusions in the warranty for chemical contaminants, fatty acids, etc.
18.) IB Roof Systems warranties are not affected in overlay applications.
19.) IB Roof Systems membrane is UL, FM, ICBO listed.
20.) IB Roof Systems membrane is a Class A Fire Rated Product – it will not support combustion.
21.) IB Roof Systems has the only ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act.) approved decking membrane in the roofing industry.
22.) IB supplies all components to comprise a “Roofing System,” including but not limited to pre-fabricated vents, flashings, drains, and PVC-Clad weldable metal.
23.) IB Roof Systems deals only with trained, certified applicators.
