TPO, or Thermoplastic Polyolefin, is a synthetic rubber compound that is one of the most popular roofing solutions for commercial buildings today.
There are many notable advantages to installing a TPO system on a commercial building. For one, TPO can be fused to create a highly reliable, long-lasting seam. In addition to its strength, it is a heat-reflective, energy efficient material that was created to withstand the effects of ozone, chemical, and ultraviolet exposure. The materials’ ability to endure these types of effects is what makes it such a cost effective option.
TPO comes in several different thicknesses and can be mechanically fastened, fully-adhered, or ballasted, depending on the existing structure. It is most commonly applied in a white color to maximize its efficiency. By reflecting heat and light, TPO guards the roof from absorbing and transmitting outside temperatures to the interior of the building.
Having a qualified roofer is essential when installing TPO. The estimator must assess the current condition of the roof and recommend the best system to install. Even the preparation to the surface of the existing roof is essential for proper installation.
