Thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO) is one of the most sought-after single-ply roofing systems in the country today. Although it’s relatively new to the market, its proven advantages guarantee that its utility will outlive its novelty. At Arry’s Roofing Services, TPO is one of our most popular commercial roofing solutions. Here’s what you need to know about this material:
Using state-of-the-art polymer technology, manufacturers produce flexible TPO membranes at low temperatures with no polymeric or liquid plasticizers. Built with polypropylene and ethylene-propylene (EP) rubber, the membranes don’t contain any chlorine, which sets them apart from other thermoplastic roofing membranes.
Green roofing contractors like us recommend this material because it doesn’t have any chlorine-containing ingredients added to sheets during production. This makes TPO an eco-friendly option.
Manufacturers combine TPO resin with a weathering package, fire retardants, and coloring pigments. The TPO-based top and bottom plies have a reinforcing fabric in between, making it extremely durable.
TPO sheets are usually white, but more colors are now available to increase curb appeal without reducing energy efficiency. While they come in an array of thicknesses, the membranes are available in six to six-and-a-half feet widths, with a length of up to 100 feet for a virtually seamless roof.
As one of the most trusted roofers in the area, we recommend TPO roofing systems to customers prioritizing durability. TPO roofs can resist tears, punctures, and impact throughout their service life. TPO is one of the most reflective and sustainable single-ply membranes on the market. With zero hazardous ingredients, TPO membranes are completely recyclable to help conserve resources and reduce carbon emissions during production.
