Cost of labor: cost of labor varies widely across the US and you need to contact a number of reputable local contractors to find out about installation prices in your area.

Thickness of the membrane: Depending on whether you would like to install a 50, 60, 80, or 115 mil thick roofing membrane, you coast will go up accordingly. Note that for strongest durability and protection, as well as highest resistance to tears and punctures it is best to get a thicker PVC membrane, such as 80 mil.

Type of installation: Different types of installation require different amounts of labor and preparation work. Depending on whether you would like your PVC roofing system to be fully adhered, mechanically attached, or ballasted, the cost will change. Also, different adhesives also contribute to cost variations. Solvent, water -based or foam adhesives are all possible choices that have different price tags. 




Removal of the old roof: Removing the old roof will cost you extra in terms of required labor, truck rental to transfer the old roof to a landfill and landfill fees. If the old roof does not need to be removed in order for a PVC membrane to be installed, you can save money by installing your PVC roof right over the old one.

Roof insulation: depending on the amount and the type of insulation you would like to go under your roof, the cost will vary.




Roof deck: depending on the deck type (wood, concrete, steel, lightweight insulating concrete or gypsum), the cost of installation will fluctuate.

Parapet walls: the presence of parapet walls requires flashing, and this in turn requires additional labor and materials.

Sections and penetrations: the more sections and penetrations your roof has, the higher will be the cost of installation.
