In the market for new roofing membranes that offer excellent energy efficiency? If so, then TPO roofing is a great option to consider. In this post, a certified roofing contractor, Gresham Roofing and Construction, shares three benefits of TPO roofing.
TPO (thermoplastic olefin roofing) was first introduced in the 90’s as an alternative to rubber and PVC roofs. What makes it stand out is that it combines the advantages of these materials without their drawbacks–all at an affordable price point.
TPO is a single-ply roofing system made of three layers; the TPO polymer base, the polyester-reinforced fabric center and the TPO compounded top ply. However, some companies use different fillers such as carbon fiber, fiberglass and talc. Ethylene-propylene rubber and EPDM is also used to manufacture TPO roofs.
Benefits of TPO Roofing:
- Easy Installation. Roofers love TPO roofs because they’re easy to install. This is because TPO roofs have wide sheets and are easy to carry around. This results in lower installation costs.
- Affordability. TPO roofs are often touted as an economical alternative to rubber and PVC roofs while possessing both their positive features and none of their disadvantages, such as hot-air weldable seams.
- Durability. Aside from being energy-efficient and economical, TPO roofs are inherently resistant to mold spores, dirt, grime and puncturing. TPO roofing is also flexible enough to adjust to the slope of your home or its movement, and it handles thermal expansion with ease.
