TPO Roofing: Economical, Long Lasting, Environmentally Friendly
Roof maintenance is vital in commercial properties and residential homes since it gets the most exposure to the elements. Therefore, it’s crucial to have a high-quality roof to protect the inside of the building from weather, the sun, etc. TPO roofing can provide such protection.
First introduced to the US in the early 1990s, TPO is a single-ply membrane made of thermoplastic polyolefin. This roofing material has become more and more popular in commercial roofing systems. But, this type of roofing membrane is not limited to commercial buildings. Residential homes also significantly benefit.
Top 3 Benefits of TPO Roofing
TPO roofing is a type of single-ply roofing system that is superior and offers many benefits. We’ve compiled a list of the top 3 benefits of using this type of roofing below!
One of the primary reasons people choose TPO is because it’s one of the least expensive materials on the market. It costs far less than EPDM and is considerably cheaper than PVC roofing. However, TPO roofing offers many of the same benefits, including hot-air welded seams and higher energy efficiency.
TPO roofs are very durable and are highly resistant to mold, dirt buildup, and punctures. The flexibility of the TPO membrane allows it to adjust to your home or commercial buildings’ movements. Reinforced TPO roofing can handle thermal expansion exceptionally well. As a result, repairs are needed less often. A TPO roof will last you an average of 22 to 30 years.
TPO is made of 100% recyclable and eco-friendly materials, making it perfect for companies working to be more green. This material can help lower carbon emissions and exceeds Energy Star standards. Additionally, TPO reflects the sun and protects commercial or residential buildings from heat and UV- Ray exposure. The heat deflection will prevent any need for additional ventilation. As a result, your energy bills will be significantly lower than other roofing systems.
