PVC roofing can be installed in two ways:

- Mechanically fastened: This method involves using screws and plates to attach the PVC to the roof deck, overlapping the welded seams with a walk welder or heat gun. This is often the most preferred option as it is the safest and will prevent wrinkling and billowing.
