COMMERCIAL TPO ROOFS

Expert commercial TPO roof installation for your building

TPO roofing membranes are skyrocketing in popularity and have garnered much praise from customers and contractors alike for their installation, performance, and pricing advantages. More and more, commercial customers are seeking long-lasting, high-performance roofing systems that will keep their energy bills low. And more and more, commercial customers are choosing a TPO roofing system to serve their commercial facility’s needs. As reported by the National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA), TPO roofing now takes up about 40% of the commercial roofing market share.

What Is TPO Roofing?

TPO stands for thermoplastic polyolefin, a single-ply roofing membrane that covers the surface of the roof. That name is a bit of a misstatement though, TPO is actually one of a few different types of rubber, typically a blend of polypropylene and ethylene-propylene rubber.

TPO roofing has become one of the top choices for commercial buildings with flat roofs. This relatively inexpensive, thin roofing choice is proving its mettle as a great option for a reflective, durable roof that will still be an economical choice.

The Appeal of a TPO Roofing System

Building owners, property managers, and contractors alike appreciate Conklin Roofing’s new TPO product, OUTPOST, for its proven performance and superior value.

Here are just a few reasons why River Run Roofing and other preferred Conklin contractors find OUTPOST and other TPO roofing membranes to be attractive to customers:

First and foremost, customers are attracted to a commercial TPO roof because of cost. Typically, a TPO roofing installation is less expensive than EPDM or other similar types of rolled rubber roofing. Another big positive is its white color. The perfect choice for reflecting the sun’s rays to keep a cooler building interior, TPO is also resistant to ultraviolet, ozone, and chemical exposure.

Class A Fire-Rated – TPO roofing membranes and EPDM can achieve Underwriters Laboratories (UL) Class A fire resistance listings by adding fire retardant chemicals during the manufacturing process.

Durable

In comparison to other similar materials, TPO resists mold growth, dirt accumulation, tears upon impact, and punctures. It is designed to maintain its flexibility and can allow for a home’s or building’s movement or settling. Reinforced TPO roofing membranes can handle a building’s thermal expansion and contraction more effectively than other single ply roofing products. TPO resists corrosion and break down upon contact with numerous materials. It also doesn’t promote mildew or algae growth and doesn’t require pressure washing.

Energy Efficiency

Due to its reflective properties, a commercial TPO roof meets and often exceeds ENERGY STAR specifications. This translates to savings on utility bills. Plus it’s also fully recyclable, an important feature that could help you qualify for environmental-related tax breaks.

10-20 Year Life Span

While TPO roofing might be an economical choice, it may not be the longest-lasting commercial roofing material on the market. Typically, TPO is showing that it has between a 10-20 year life span compared to more expensive roofing materials like metal or Flexion.
