TPO (thermoplastic olefin) roofs are one of the most common single-ply roofing choice for flat roofs, especially for commercial properties. What exactly makes TPO one of the most widely used roofing systems on the market? Commercial and residential roofing contractor Y.E.S. Contracting Services weighs in and lists down the top five benefits of installing TPO roofing.
For business owners, every purchase is an investment. Bearing this in mind, deciding to install high-quality TPO roofing over its single-ply roofing counterparts is a cost-efficient choice. It offers pretty much the same benefits as PVC roofing at a much lower price point.
TPO roofs come in several aesthetically pleasing choices that can match and complement the look of your commercial property. The most common reflective color options include light gray, white and even black.
3. Easier to Install
TPO is lighter compared to other roofing materials. TPO membranes also come in wider sheets, making them easier to handle and thus cutting down the installation time by a substantial amount. This makes TPO roofing a favorite among business property owners and new roof installation companies alike.
4. Energy Efficiency
TPO roofing is considered a cool roof, which means it is a roofing system that can reflect harmful sun rays, radiate solar energy, and reduce heat transfer better than standard roofing materials. To ensure the energy efficiency of your TPO roof, it’s best to check whether it has met and passed ENERGY STAR® requirements. Another way of maximizing your roof’s energy-efficient properties is to choose a TPO membrane with a smooth surface. This type of surface texture offers the best protection against dirt and debris, which can age your roof prematurely.
High-quality TPO roofing can resist and withstand mold growth, dirt and the general wear and tear of exposure to the elements.
