For roofers, protecting our customer’s roofs means we have to achieve a difficult balance between using the best technology and keeping costs manageable. We work hard to find new techniques and products to aid in the battle against the elements, and one of these is thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO), which is fast becoming a staple in the commercial roofing industry.
The benefits of TPO
A TPO roof is a single-ply roofing system that consists of a polymer base, a fabric center, and a TPO top coating. This makes a strong barrier against the elements that is resistant to heat and UV exposure. Other benefits of TPO are:
Cost – TPO offers the same degree of protection as PVC roofs but at a fraction of the cost. This is particularly beneficial if you need to cover large amounts of roof area.
Durability – TPO membranes resist mold growth, impacts, and punctures. It is made to be flexible to allow for a building’s thermal expansion and contraction which makes it ideal for buildings that need to house heat producing industrial equipment or refrigerated storage.
Easy to install – Single-ply roofing membranes can be manufactured in lightweight larger sheets that is easier to install with fewer seams. This translates to less work and time needed to install the roofing material.
Energy efficient – TPO has a reflective white surface which exceeds the EPA’s Energy Star requirements. This is attractive to businesses and homeowners that are looking to reduce energy costs while keeping the building comfortable.
Environmentally friendly – Going green? TPO roofs can meet this need. Not only do they reduce the amount of energy waste from your HVAC system through their solar reflective properties but a TPO roof also does not include chlorine. This substance is extremely damaging to the environment. It is one of very few roofing options that are also completely recyclable, allowing the membrane to be used again during the process of manufacturing.
