TPO is a mainstay for single-ply roofing technology, and it’s one of the most-used membrane roofing systems today. It’s a low-maintenance solution that’s chemical- and pollutant-resistant to protect rainwater runoff from contamination. TPO is extremely versatile, and it’s resistant to tears, abrasions, and punctures, which makes it great for the potential severe weather in the Tri-State area.
What is TPO?
TPO membranes are a blend of ethylene propylene and polypropylene rubber. They’re heat-weldable, and they’re available in a variety of thicknesses from 30 mil to 90 mil.
TPO is a Green Roofing Choice
TPO is an environmentally friendly choice for your roof. It’s a long-term roofing solution that can have a big impact on your energy bills. TPO is highly reflective, and it’s UV resistant, reflecting around 87 percent of harmful rays away from the roof. It works with cool roofing systems to improve energy efficiency and comfort, earning it an ENERGY STAR rating.
The Benefits of TPO
In addition to its energy efficiency, TPO provides a number of benefits:
- It’s highly durable.
- It requires little maintenance.
- It offers excellent resistance to wind uplift.
- Built-in UV protection and thermal shock durability to protect the inside of your business.
- Flexibility, even during a deep freeze.
- Superior tensile strength.
- 20-year lifespan with proper installation and regular maintenance.
TPO Installation Options
TPO can be mechanically attached, ballasted, or fully adhered. Large TPO sheets make for fast installation, and the seams are heat-welded to create a seamless membrane offering excellent leak prevention and stellar strength.
