Why Your Building Deserves a TPO Roofing SystemPosted on: February 5, 2019
Before we get to the why, allow us to explain a bit of a what TPO Roofing Systems are.
TPO, otherwise known as Thermoplastic Polyolefin, is not the newest kid on the block for roofing options for huge structures but one of the most misunderstood materials. It is a single-ply reflective roofing membrane, that varies in thickness depending on manufacturing requirements and design.
This roofing is made of polypropylene and ethylene-propylene rubber joined together by polymer. While these materials have been in the market for almost 30 years now, it is only recently that it is gaining popularity. With much clamor for a more environment-friendly, innovative, and sustainable use of materials, TPO has come to the spotlight. TPO is often characterized as a reflective roof with extreme durability that won’t break the bank.
Now that we have properly introduced TPO to you, allow us to count the ways why your new building should sport a TPO for its new roof:
With a white surface facing the sun, a TPO roof helps keep the building cool in the day, especially summer. The ability of this roof to reduce heat build-up in the structure is among the top reasons why it has gained a huge following in the construction industry. A white surface also means it can deflect the light away from the building. This way, your employees can enjoy an afternoon without the sun burning through them while at work.
2. INSTALLATION OPTIONS
Some roofing materials can only be installed one way. With TPO, it can be attached or fastened with adhesives giving the contractors a choice on how they want the material placed on the structure. It can also be welded. This also means that those availing of this material can decide on the material that will attach the TPO roof to their building. It’s best of course to be educated on the building and construction relating to roofing for best results.
3. NO MATERIALS BUILD-UP
Unlike shingles, TPO is not prone to moss build-up or corrosion. In fact, this material can resists corrosion. It also does not require pressure washing every so often unlike other materials.
4. COST EFFICIENT
This is actually the top reason why contractors and building owners alike prefer TPO. TPO itself is relatively cheaper compared to its closest rival in the market. Contractors are able to utilize the efficiency of this material because it is easy to install which cuts back coasts on labor hours or days.
These are only some of the most convenient reasons why a TPO is the best option for your building. However, since this material has gained popularity, some manufacturers have started producing this material with lower quality.
