TPO (Thermoplastic Polyolefin) roofs are one of the fastest-growing commercial roofing products. If you are looking to install a single-ply roofing membrane that is energy-efficient, you should consider TPO roofing. It is the material of choice due to the many performance and installation advantages.
What exactly is TPO? It is a single-ply roofing system consisting of a thermoplastic polyolefin membrane, which is composed of three layers: TPO polymer base, a polyester-reinforced fabric center, and thermoplastic polyolefin compounded top ply. Here are a few benefits of TPO roofing:
Reasonable cost makes TPO roofing a good option for both residential and commercial construction. It offers similar benefits as PVC roofing, like hot-air weldable seams and energy efficiency, but typically at a more attractive cost.
Homeowners tend to appreciate TPO because it is manufactured to look nice on many different types of homes. It is available in white, reflective gray, and tan options. If you are looking to save energy, this does not mean that you must only consider white roofing. The latest technologies enable all colors to be UV resistant!
TPO resists mold growth, dirt accumulation, and punctures. It is a flexible material that does not prohibit a home’s movement or settling. Reinforced TPO membranes can handle thermal expansion of a building as well as contraction in a more effective manner than other single-ply roofing products.
TPO membranes are generally manufactured with wider sheets and are lightweight, allowing for easy installation and fewer seams. You will save on the cost of installation due to less work and time needed to install.
If you enjoy helping the environment and saving on cooling costs, you will love TPO roofing. TPO’s white reflective surface exceeds the EPA’s Energy Star requirements, and the white, tan, and gray surfaces are listed with the Cool Roof Rating Council. TPO roofing keeps your interior comfortable during hot days while keeping your AC costs low.
