TPO Roofing Services
TPO is the Standard Commercial Roofing Material
TPO roofing was introduced to commercial developers in the 1990s and has evolved into the standard roofing system for commercial buildings. Today, 40% of commercial buildings have a TPO roof. Thanks to its easy application, TPO roofing systems supply investors and owners with better-insulated facilities, resulting in a more comfortable climate and energy savings.
TPO, Thermoplastic Polyolefin, is a single-layered roofing material commonly used on large commercial buildings. TPO is attached to or ballasted to a building’s insulation, creating a layer of safeguard that protects the building from the elements. The TPO membrane is made of polymers and rubbers.
The Roof Specialists can install TPO Roofing material in several ways.
- Mechanically Attached: TPO is attached with fasteners to the insulation and decking materials, usually at the seams. This method is ideal for areas with heavy winds.
- Adhered: We can use adhesive glue to attach the TPO roofing material to the insulation and decking materials. The glue acts as a sealant, creating a firm chemical bond that is strong enough to protect against the harsh Texas climate. Due to energy savings, adequate installation methods are ideal for areas of high temperatures, such as central Texas.
- Peel & Stick: GenFlex manufactures TPO roofing material that Peels & Sticks to your roof. Peel & Stick TPO is installed faster than adhered systems and is the most commonly used TPO roofing material.
- Ballasted: The TPO roofing material and insulation are layered, and we fasten the borders of the TPO membrane to the insulation. A blend of small pebbles, called Ballast, is laid on top of the membrane, adding weight that holds the TPO membrane in place. Ballast is the best installation form if the owner must complete the job quickly and inexpensively.
TPO Roofing is Energy Efficient! The TPO roofing material is white, making TPO roofs highly reflective.
TPO roofing reflects heat away from the building and maintains a lower temperature. The building’s interior stays more comfortable and can rely less on large air conditioning systems that consume lots of energy.
TPO is a sustainable option for building owners attempting to reduce energy demand and limit their investments’ carbon footprint.
TPO roofing materials are also recyclable.
TPO is Durable
TPO membranes are resistant to tearing, puncturing, chemical exposure, and harsh weather. TPO roofing systems expand and compress, allowing for movement as the new building’s structure settles. For this reason, TPO roofing systems are the most flexible single-ply roofing material.
TPO is built to resist dirt. The membrane of TPO roofing systems remains white for an extended period. TPO roofs are low maintenance and do not require frequent cleaning.
The Most Cost-Effective Roofing System for Large Commercial Buildings
TPO is often the most affordable roofing material for commercial structures.
Installing a TPO roofing system is cheaper than installing other commercial roofing materials, such as standing seam metal roofing.
