Are you looking for a new roofing system that will help breathe new life into your home? Then, you’re in luck since thermoplastic olefin (TPO) roofing is one of the best options for your consideration.
What Is TPO Roofing?
TPO roofing was first used as a roofing material back in the 1990s as an eco-friendly alternative to polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and rubber roofing materials. Its main selling point is that it’s touted to have both the benefits of PVC and rubber roofing, without their drawbacks and hefty costs.
This is a single-ply roofing membrane that consists of a TPO membrane with different layers, namely: the main TPO membrane, the polyester fabric center and a TPO-compounded top ply. Other roofing manufacturers use talc, fiberglass and carbon fiber to create this material. It’s possible that they can also incorporate ethylene propylene (EPDM) rubber into the mix.
Benefits of TPO Roofing
- Cost effective: TPO is a favorable material since it’s affordable for most homeowners. It’s considerably cheaper than PVC and offers the same benefits like weldable seams and superior energy efficiency.
- Easy to install: TPO roofing is easy to carry around, making it easier for your roofing contractors to install. This further reduces your installation costs as well.
- Durability: TPO roofing is inherently resistant to mold growth, dirt and punctures. It also handles thermal expansion well, compared against contemporary roofing materials.
