TPO roofing is typically used in commercial buildings. Thermoplastic Polyolefin is a single-ply roofing membrane used to cover flat roofs. It is also one of the fastest growing commercial roofing systems on the market today. Commercial and industrial buildings have been using TPO roofing systems for decades. A Ready Roofing has been installing TPO roofing systems from its early beginnings. Here in Florida, the summers are hot and wet. The intense summer heat can easily be reflected by the bright white surface of the TPO roof. This one feature helps make TPO an energy efficient choice.
TPO offers many of the same benefits and efficiency as PVC roofing, but for less money. TPO roofs can resist debris build-up, bacteria and algae too. The durable membrane is flexible and resistant to tears. The flexibility allows the building to settle without affecting the roof’s surface. It is no wonder why TPO roofing systems are quickly growing in popularity and demand, in both residential and commercial markets. If your home has a flat style roof, TPO could be a good option.
TPO roofing is relatively new technology. The first known was installed sometime in the mid 1980’s. Manufacturers are still working to perfect the technology. Like all technology, TPO has advanced, but new ideas form into better products. Talk to us about this as an option for your next flat roof.
