IB versus other materials


I have some literature advertising IB systems. It says theirs is the only type of roll-on rubber or plastic material that can be patched or repaired. If that is true, then any problem with their competitor's roofs could only be solved by replacing the entire roof. What is the real story on that?

Here is another question. I spoke to a real estate salesman who told me that IB and similar materials have not been around long enough to be proved in the real world and so, according to him, I should avoid them. Does anyone know anything about that?

Your real estate guy is lieing to your face or is simply ignorant.

I do not have a lot of experience with single ply heat welded systems (PVC, TPO, etc) but PVC is the most durable, from what my colleagues that have used it extensively have told me.

IB roof systems is a high quality product in that market. It is warrantable with ponding water (no other single ply or modified bitumen roof is) and for residantial applications. From what I hear, it is a great roof if proprly installed,

Where are you located?

I live in Western Washington south of Seattle about 20 miles. It rains a lot here. The roof has a 2:12 pitch.

IB versus other materials


kingcounty: tried to send you a private message but apparently I don't have enough posts on the DIY Chatroom yet to do so so am hoping you still subscribe to this thread.

Anyway, I'm in Puyallup not far from you, am evaluating products to deal with my failed old flat hot mop roof, looking at IB, TPO, etc. am curious what you ended up with and if you have a contractor you recommend for me to use. Actually wanted to have a roofer pitch the roof but got estimates of $20-40K which is a bit much as the flat part of my roof is only 18' x 39', have one estimate so far on TPO for $9K, just signed up for IB's referral program to get IB-certified contractors to contact me.

Thanks in advance...
