What is TPO Roofing?

Thermoplastic polyolefin, or TPO as it is more often known, is a single-ply roofing membrane that provides good performance at a reasonable cost. Superior strength is provided by heat-welded seams. TPO is a dependable low-slope roofing material due to its long-term heat, UV, and natural fungus resistance as well as flexibility without the need for plasticizers.

The Benefits of a TPO Roofing System

TPO has been utilized in the industry for more than 20 years and has grown to be one of the most widely used materials for low-slope roofing. The total area of single-ply roofs constructed now is over 1 billion square feet, or more than 50%. Several of TPO's intrinsic advantages, such as the following, can be attributed to its quick increase in popularity.

  • Great Value: Excellent performance at a cost-effective pricing.

  • Excellent Seam Strength: Heat-welded seams provide greater seam strength to taped and other seams.

  • Long-term Weathering: Excellent long-term heat and UV resistance.

  • Energy Saving: Highly reflecting and emissive white surface can assist minimize energy expenses and urban heat island impact

  • Inherently Flexible: No need for plasticizers

  • Naturally Fungal Resistant: Doesn’t require biocides.

  • Versatile Application Methods: Including high-performance roofs requiring high wind uplift, greater puncture resistance, or quick economical methods.
