How Can We Help?
What is TPO Roofing?
TPO roofing is a type of single-ply roofing membrane that covers the entire surface of a roof. It’s increasing in popularity for use on flat roof commercial and industrial buildings due to its low cost, easy application, durability, and protective qualities. TPO stands for thermoplastic polyolefin and is a more economical option over its competitors, EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer, a synthetic rubber) and PVC (polyvinyl chloride) roofing. TPO roofing comes in many colors but is usually applied in lighter reflective colors like white, grey, or tan. The lighter reflective hues help to deflect UV radiation in warmer climates.
Advantages of TPO Roofing
TPO roofing has many well-known advantages in both commercial and residential applications. It is extremely cost-efficient as well as easy to apply and gives your roof great protection against inclement weather and impact damage. To learn more about TPO roofing’s many benefits, please review the sections detailing each benefit below.
Lower Materials Cost
TPO roofing’s number one benefit is its low cost as compared to other roofing materials. In the U.S., a flat roof of about 1,500 square feet will cost about 10-15% cheaper than EPDM and PVC roofing applications. The cost of the material itself is very economical and because the application is so easy, you’ll also save on labor costs.
Lower Cooling Costs
Perhaps the greatest benefit of TPO roofing membranes are its energy savings. Due to its reflectivity and resistance to UV radiation, the roof is kept cool, preventing heat absorption, which in turn keeps the internal building temperature constant. Air conditioning systems will not have to kick into overdrive to keep the building cool in hotter months.
TPO roofing membranes are great for protection against a variety of possible damage and require little upkeep or maintenance. TPO roofing protects against mold growth, accumulation of dirt, mildew, and algae. And because the surface membrane is so flexible, expansions and contractions of the roof are accommodated without tears or punctures where bacteria or dirt could accumulate.
Because TPO membranes come in large, lightweight pieces, installation is exceedingly easy. The larger pieces imply fewer problematic seams. Each piece can either be directly fastened, adhered with adhesives, or heat welded to high-risk areas like chimneys, vents, or other roof protrusions. The versatility and ease of installation make it a great choice.
Strength & Durability
When compared to other thermoplastic membranes, TPO is much more durable and resistant to tears, puncturing, and other damage. The flexibility allows a home or building to move and settle without a problem. Simply put: Reinforced TPO membranes handle thermal contraction and expansion much better than other singly ply roofing systems on the market.
TPO roofing can be installed in a variety of colors to meet the design preferences of the building owner. Most owners opt for lighter colors like white, light gray, or tan to generate optimum heat reflection and reap the energy-saving benefits. However, TPO roofs are manufactured to be UV resistant regardless of their color. So even a black or dark grey application will provide reduced energy costs.
The Installation Process
TPO roofing membranes come in large, lightweight sheets that can be attached in a variety of ways to your building’s roof. You can choose to have the sheets fastened directly to the roof deck or adhered using adhesives. For high-risk protrusions like chimneys, vents, or other roof extensions, the membrane can be heat welded. Each method is quite simple and quickly done. Due to TPO membranes coming in large sheets, there are also fewer seams to worry about, reducing the risk of pesky debris build-up and potential water damage.
