Determining which Carlisle system to install depends on a variety of conditions, but few are more important than your local climate. While all Carlisle roof systems perform admirably in virtually all weather conditions, certain systems are better equipped than others for specific climates. Offering the widest variety of roofing systems, Carlisle SynTec can provide a roofing solution that will meet your needs as the best system for your building.
Warranted Peace of Mind
With Carlisle, you can rest assured that you will have the best warranty protection possible. With warranties covering the repair of leaks from a variety of causes (including hail up to two inches and wind of up to 120 mph) and offering terms of up to 30 years, you can feel confi dent that your building is protected long term against an unlikely failure. You may even choose warranty options that protect against accidental puncture. The warranty process begins with a comprehensive inspection by a Carlisle fi eld service representative, providing the building owner with even greater confi dence that the roof was installed fl awlessly.
Carlisle Syntec TPO Roofing:
Thermoplastic polyolefin, or TPO, is the fastest-growing segment of the commercial roofing industry, and Carlisle is the leading supplier of this type of roofing. Fueling this growth is the increased use of TPO in southern climates where cooling costs significantly outweigh heating costs. Carlisle’s Sure-Weld TPO membranes are ENERGY STAR®-qualifi ed and CRRC (Cool Roof Rating Council) certified and have been directly attributed to a reduction in a building’s energy consumption by greatly diminishing the cost of air conditioning.
In addition to Sure-Weld TPO, Carlisle offers Spectro-Weld™, the industry’s most reflective single-ply membrane designed for installation in conjunction with PV applications, as well as any project that benefi ts from long-term reductions in cooling costs. Spectro-Weld’s industry-leading reflectivity and extremely smooth top surface enables the membrane to provide a whiter, more reflective appearance for years to come.

Reduces Urban Heat Island Effects
Heat islands can occur in large cities where much of the vegetation has been removed and replaced with roads and structures. In such urban areas, studies indicate that weather patterns can be altered by the presence of developed space. Roads and building rooftops absorb a significant amount of heat during the day which, in turn, is radiated back into the atmosphere, causing further warming. Roof gardens help insulate and shade buildings, and the plants on green roofs transpire, thereby cooling the atmosphere around them.
Versico: Versico’s white and tan VersiWeld TPO membranes are ENERGY STAR® qualified, Cool Roof Rating Council (CRRC) certified and Title 24 approved right out of the package. Versico’s white TPO membrane features an initial ENERGY STAR and CRRC solar reflectance of 0.79, thermal emissivity of 0.90 and an SRI (Solar Refl ective Index) of 99. Plus every white TPO membrane comes with a 10-year reflectivity warranty.

Is a PVC roof durable?
VersiFlex PVC roofi ng membrane is known for its durability. It provides superior
resistance to punctures and tears. It is low-maintenance, has exceptional seam
strength, and can withstand extreme temperature fl uctuations. It also resists
damage that can be caused by rooftop foot traffi c and construction.
Are PVC roofs energy-efficient?
A VersiFlex PVC roof has the ability to save you money while being environmentally
friendly. The high reflectivity of the white membrane helps lower operating costs in
warm climates by reducing air conditioning usage. White VersiFlex PVC membranes
are ENERGY STAR® qualified, CRRC rated, compliant with California’s Title 24, and
can also contribute toward LEED® credit requirements. In addition, once the roof has
reached the end of its service life, the PVC can be recycled.
What kind of PVC membranes does Versico offer?
VersiFlex PVC is available in a variety of thicknesses, widths, colors, and
reinforcements; therefore, a Versico membrane exists which is ideally suited to
