Essential Qualities to Look for in TPO Roofing

Looking for a resilient and cost-effective roofing system for your commercial building? At MASCON INC., we suggest you consider TPO roofing. It offers the exceptional benefits of EPDM and PVC roof but at a more economical cost. TPO, however, is still fairly new. You need to consider some important factors when choosing the right type of TPO roofing. In today’s post, MASCON INC., the roof replacement expert, explains what to look for:

TPO Roofing

Quality

Many TPO manufacturers are still tweaking their formulas to achieve the highest level of durability and longevity at the most affordable price. This means there are some TPO membranes that perform better than the others, which is why you should only purchase this product from a trusted manufacturer. Verify that they have been in the market for at least 15 years. You also need to make sure that they offer a clear warranty policy in case an issue arises.

MASCON INC. can provide you with the perfect solution. We are partners with GAF, the leading roofing manufacturer in the country. They have commissioned the largest independent study conducted on TPO performance, and results show that their EverGuard® TPO commercial roofing is the best-performing product in accelerated aging tests. GAF also backs their systems with solid warranties of up to 30 years.

Durability and Energy Efficiency

The most resilient TPO roofs are welded at the highest temperatures. This strengthens the seams, allowing the TPO roofing to deliver excellent resistance against leaks and wind uplifts. You should also opt for thicker membranes for better protection against weathering and solar radiation. If you’re planning to take advantage of TPO’s “cool roof” qualities, choose a membrane with a smooth surface. This withstands dirt and debris, increasing your roof’s reflectance and even its lifespan.
