TPO is one of the most cost-effective and durable materials for flat roofs. The fact that it has all the features of EPDM and PVC single-ply membranes at the same price is one of the reasons there’s a rise in TPO roofing installation in both the residential and commercial sector.
Harmony Home Improvement shares the key features of TPO that make it the most reliable choice for flat roofs.
A “Multi-Layered” Single-Ply Membrane
One of the unique features of TPO is that despite being classified as a single-ply membrane, the actual material is made of three distinct parts: the polymer base, a polyester-reinforced fabric center and a thermoplastic polyolefin-compounded top fly.
This unique composition gives TPO higher weather resistance and natural durability than EPDM and PVC. Because of this, it’s one of the more economical commercial roofing systems as it essentially has all the benefits of the two single-ply membranes for the same price.
An Energy-Efficient Option
Since TPO roofs come in lighter colors, they are naturally reflective and can help mitigate the urban heat island effect. This benefits property owners too as the roof is naturally cool and will regulate and stabilize indoor temperature.
A Flexible Roof
TPO is a naturally flexible material, meaning it’s more resistant to tears, punctures and impact damage. This flexibility also allows the roof to settle along the movement of the building without compromising its durability and stability. Since this single-ply membrane is made with wider sheets and is lightweight, installation is easy and it has fewer seams, too.
While easy to install, it’s still better to have a roofing company like us install your new TPO roof for you to enjoy all it has to offer.
