Thermoplastic polyolefin, also known as TPO, offers many performance and installation advantages. If you’ve ever spotted a bright white roof, that’s more than likely a TPO roof. They’re very common for commercial facilities and offer exceptional energy savings.
What is a TPO roof?
A TPO roof is made of single-ply roofing membranes and is a very popular choice for commercial spaces. These membranes are sheets of rubber and synthetic materials with reinforcing scrim. This will completely cover a sizable flat commercial roof. In addition, your TPO roof can last 30 years if installed and maintained correctly.
Benefits of TPO roofing?
TPO roofing provides excellent resistance to ultraviolet, ozone and other chemical exposure. The white surface reflects UV rays and heat from the building, saving you money on energy costs during the warmer months. Heat welding makes an impervious surface for superior seam strength, resistance to wind uplift and excellent leak protection. For a heat-reflective and energy-efficient roofing system, invest in thermoplastic polyolefin.
