Thermoplastic Polyolefin (TPO) is a more cost-effective alternative for polyvinyl chloride (PVC) roofing products. It’s a single-ply roofing system featuring a thermoplastic polyolefin membrane with three layers. TPO is one of today’s most popular flat roof replacement options.
Read on to discover the benefits of installing TPO.
Compared to other types of thermoplastic membranes, TPO offers better resistance to mold, dirt buildup, tears and punctures. Manufacturers designed this material to be flexible and allow for a structure’s movement or settling. Reinforced TPO membranes can withstand a home or building’s thermal expansion and contraction better than other single-ply roofing installation.
TPO comes in white, light grey and black reflective colors. This means you don’t necessarily need to have a white roof installed to save on your heating and cooling costs. Modern advances allowed all colors of TPO to be ultraviolet (UV) resistant and cool. With TPO, you don’t have to sacrifice looks for energy efficiency and vice versa.
Another reason you should consider TPO for your commercial or residential roofing system is its ease of installation. Since TPO membranes are made with wider sheets, they are lightweight. It will be easier for your contractor to install this material, and it also has fewer seams. The faster your roofer can complete your project, the more you can save on labor costs.
TPO performs efficiently in both residential and commercial structures, and you can have it at a reasonable cost. It has similar features to PVC, such as energy efficiency and hot-air weldable seams, but is more cost-effective.
