Are you in the market for new roofing membranes that will help you save on monthly energy expenditures? If so, then thermoplastic olefin (TPO) roofing may be one of the best options for you.
What Is TPO Roofing?
TPO roofing was first used in the roofing industry in the early 1990s as a sustainable alternative to both polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and rubber roofing materials. It boasts to have the benefits of both of its contemporaries without their disadvantages and extra costs.
TPO is a single-ply roofing membrane that consists of a thermoplastic polyolefin membrane in three layers, namely: the TPO polymer membrane, a polyester fabric center and a TPO-compounded top ply. Sometimes, fillers like talc, fiberglass and carbon fiber are used. Another common rubber that is incorporated during the manufacturing process is ethylene propylene diene monomer rubber (EPDM).
Benefits of TPO Roofing
- Cost-efficient: TPO is a popular material thanks to its affordable price. It’s cheaper than PVC roofing and offers the same perks, such as weldable seams and superior energy efficiency.
- Ease of installation: TPO roofing is easier to carry around, thanks to the wider sheets. It’s also easier to install, reducing your installation costs.
- Durability: TPO roofs resist mold growth, dirt accumulation and punctures. It also handles heat expansion very well when compared to other single-ply roofing systems.
