TPO and benefits of TPO roofing systems
When it comes to choosing the best solution for your commercial building, there are many options available today. Thanks to the ever-growing roofing industry, there are choices for even the toughest clients out there. Based on many different factors, certain types provide certain benefits and are designed to be used in certain environments.
The most common materials used in commercial roofing systems include synthetic rubber, made of either PVC or TPO; metal or thermoplastic.
Thermoplastic olefin (TPO) single-ply roofing membranes are among the fastest growing commercial roofing products. In the process of production of the TPO, the preferred materials include polyproplene and polyethylene, and fiberglass or carbon as a filler. TPO is made of a thermoplastic blend of rubber and fillers that play an important role in creating more durability. Using hot air for welding plates in one piece instead of adhesives or tapes makes it safer when it comes to leaking. In the beginning, as it was a relatively new commercial roofing solution, there were some bad examples of TPO roofing due to heat exposure, but after improving system formulas, such instances are almost impossible to happen.
There are several benefits of TPO roofing. For instance, most roofing systems include many problems with bacteria, algae, and fungi which are not something you will deal with if you choose TPO as your roofing system. Because of the smart production process and fillers, the material is much stronger, durable and flexible which prevents all kind of physical damage and at the same time makes your building safe and protected. What makes it the favorite option of many commercial building owners is it’s high resistance to the effects of different chemical compounds, such as ozone and UV radiation. In the same time, TPO roofing system follows most of the today´s trends so it is completely eco-friendly, recyclable and there is no chlorine used in the production process. The most exciting benefit of TPO roofing system for most of new customers will be price, which is relatively cheap compared to its utility. This makes TPO the best solution for all type of customers, those who are looking for new, long-term roofing system with all kind of benefits and no budget limits same as for those who are a bit tight on the budget but still wish to upgrade their home.
In any case, before making any kind of decision, make sure you know what you want. Choose a roofing contractor you can trust with your roof, and all that it covers. It’s your business we’re talking about here; normally you would want it to be in its prime all of the time.
