TPO Roofing

Similar to EPDM, PVC, and Modified Bitumin, TPO roofs are usually found on commercial buildings.

TPO roofing gets its name from being made of Thermoplastic polyolefin, thus (TPO). It is comprised of single-ply membranes. TPO is one of the quickest growing commercial roofing products, due to a combination of its performance and special advantages it has with installation.

For starters, TPO roofing systems are known to be highly reflective and energy efficient. They are highly resistant when exposed to various chemicals and ultraviolet rays.

Furthermore, TPO roofing systems are easier to install due to their pliability and flexibility during the installation process.

Installation usually involves fully adhering or mechanically attaching a white membrane that will remain exposed throughout the life of the roof.

For this reason, you want a certified professional roofing contractor to perform your installation. Call us today for a free quote!

TPO Roofing FAQs

What is a TPO roof?

Thermoplastic olefin (TPO), thermoplastic polyolefin or olefinic thermoplastic elastomers refer to polymer/filler blends usually consisting of some fraction of a thermoplastic, an elastomer or rubber, and usually a filler.

TPO is often used for outdoor applications as it does not degrade due to exposures to UV light and heat.

What is the average lifespan of a TPO roof?

There have been many improvements to TPO chemical compounds in recent years, so the new roofs have not been around long enough to say exactly. However, an average lifespan should run between 20 and 30 years. This is in part due to lamination upon installation.

How much do TPO roofing systems cost?

You are likely to spend anywhere from $5.50 to $9.50 per square foot for a typical residential roof. For a larger commercial roof, including installation costs and other expenses, you may spend anywhere from $6,000 to $12,000 for the whole new roof.

Is TPO roofing fire resistant?

Yes! TPO roofing systems are resistant to UV rays and heat, similarly to EPDM, and are also as heat-weldable as PVC roofing systems.
