TPO or thermoplastic polyolefin is a single-ply roofing membrane that was introduced in the early 1990s as a more economical and efficient alternative to PVC products. It is one of the fastest-growing systems for commercial applications on the market today. Take a close look at the advantages of this roofing membrane.
- Economical. One of the main factors that make TPO roofing attractive in residential and commercial construction is its relatively affordable price. This membrane offers many of the same advantages as PVC roofing, including hot-air weldable seams, and is as UV-resistant and heat-resistant as EPDM, but generally comes at a lower cost.
- Durable. When compared to other thermoplastic membranes, TPO roofing is better at resisting mold and mildew, dirt, tears due to impact, and punctures. Its flexibility also allows for the movement or settlement of the home or building. In fact, reinforced TPO membranes handle thermal expansion more effectively than other single-ply structures.
- Energy-Efficient. According to a roofing contractor, the energy-efficient features of TPO roofing offer more benefits than initially thought. Not only will you save on energy costs, but you will also be able to help the environment by reducing your carbon footprint. Furthermore, TPO roofing is known to exceed the EPA’s ENERGY STAR requirements, which can keep your interior cool and cozy during summer.
- Ease of Installation. TPO membranes are usually manufactured with wider sheets and have fewer seams, which makes them lightweight and easier to install. Less time and effort required to install TPO roofing also translates into lower installation costs.
