Why Is TPO Roofing a Good Commercial Roofing Option?
December 6, 2021 by Heritage Roofing
Thermoplastic Polyolefin or TPO is a popular commercial and industrial roof option. It is a material made of several synthetic polymers and reinforcing fabric scrim. TPO is a single-ply roofing membrane, meaning it is installed to the substrate in one layer. Installers usually mechanically or chemically fasten it to the substrate with seams made to be heat-welded together.
A commercial and residential roofing expert explains why TPO is a good option for your building.
Ease of Installation
Since TPO is lightweight and flexible and has fewer seams, it is easier to set up and install. The faster your contractor can complete your roof installation or replacement, the more savings you will enjoy on labor costs.
Another benefit you can enjoy when you choose TPO for your building is lower energy bills. This material is energy-efficient and a better option for the environment. Its white reflect surface surpasses ENERGY STAR®’s standards. A TPO roof will reflect the sun’s heat from your building, helping its interior stay cool during summer. As a result, you won’t have to rely as much on your HVAC system for keeping your spaces comfortable. Heritage Roofing will be more than happy to tell you more about this material if you are interested in getting it for your commercial property. We also offer quality shingle roof installation services.
TPO roofing offers superior resistance to debris, bacteria, algae, and dirt. You can count on this material to remain efficient even after years of exposure to the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays. Thanks to its flexible membrane, it can also withstand impact damage, punctures, and tears.
