What is TPO Roofing?
TPO roofing is short for thermoplastic polyolefin. It’s a single-ply membrane that’s made of vulcanized rubber and thermoplastic polypropylene. TPO roofing was developed in the 1980s as an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional PVC and EPDM roofing systems.
How is TPO Roofing Installed?
TPO roofing systems can be either mechanically fastened or fully adhered to the substrate. Mechanically fastened systems use plates or bars to secure the membrane to the substrate, while fully adhered systems use adhesive to attach the membrane.
What are the Benefits of TPO Roofing?
There are many benefits to choosing a TPO roof for your home. First of all, TPO roofs are very energy efficient, which can help you save money on your energy bills. They’re also highly reflective, which helps keep your home cooler in the summer months. Additionally, TPO roofs are very durable and can last for 20 years or more with proper care and maintenance. Plus, they’re easy to repair if they do develop any leaks or other problems.
