TPO roofs are quickly becoming one of most popular flat roofing options. TPO roofing is a cost-effective and long-lasting flat roofing option. TPO roofing membranes are a cost-effective option if you’re in search of a roofing solution. This membrane is ideal for commercial and new roofs.

What is TPO?

TPO roofs have been gaining popularity since their introduction in 1990. Thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO), a single-ply, white reflective roofing membrane made of polypropylene (ethylene-propylene rubber) and ethylene-propylene (ethylene-propylene diene monomer (EPDM) was created to be as long-lasting as EPDM (ethylenepropylene diene monomer). It can be installed either fully attached or mechanically attached. TPO bonds create a monolithic, homogenous structure that covers the entire roof.

A versatile and durable roofing membrane

Thermoplastic roof membranes have extraordinary strength and wind resistance. TPO roofs are strong and resistant to dirt, bacteria or algae buildup. It is highly resistant to punctures, tears and impact damage due to its flexibility. It is also an easy-to-maintain material.

Reflecting the harsh sun’s rays

TPO can also be made in other colors but the most common choice for TPO membranes is white. The membrane’s light color reflects the sun’s rays rather than absorbing them. The interior of your building will stay cooler if the roof is cooler. You will spend less on energy during the hot Central Florida days.

Customized roof systems

TPO roofing comes in rolls so it’s easier to cut the right size for your roof. A contractor will be able provide a more customized fit to your roof. This reduces the likelihood of water entering your building through seams.
