What Is Commercial TPO Roofing?
TPO stands for Thermoplastic Polyolefin (TPO). It’s a material made from polypropylene and ethylene-propylene rubber blended together through polymerization. The result is a single-ply roofing membrane that we install on a roof like laying down a sheet. We will either adhere it to the roof or use a system to attach it securely in multiple places.
TPO membrane forms the top layer of the roof. That means it withstands the elements handily while providing a secure surface on which to move around when necessary.
What Are the Benefits of TPO Roofing?
This type of roofing boasts a vast array of benefits, including:
This rubbery surface repels moisture. That means it keeps water, snow, and other runoff from penetrating the building envelope and causing structural damage.
By reflecting the sun’s rays back upward, the roof helps moderate the indoor environment of the building. Also, it mitigates the urban heat island effect that results from city surfaces absorbing sunlight.
TPO withstands weather and other potentially damaging factors for decades. It comes in 3 different thicknesses and various warranty lengths are available. Therefore, you don’t have to worry about putting in another roof any time soon.
