Why TPO Commercial Roofing Is So Widely Used


commercial roofing

You may be unfamiliar with thermoplastic polyolefin roofing (TPO). However, it has gained massive traction in the U.S. market due to its energy efficiency, affordable price, and durability. According to Building Enclosure Magazine, property owners have installed more than 20 billion square feet of TPO roofing in the country since the commercialization of the roofing style in 1990. This number reflects TPO roofing's high quality and the numerous benefits it offers to residential and commercial roofing projects. Let's explore these benefits further.

Cost Effective
Many people and businesses prefer to save money wherever they can. If you're in this mindset, TPO commercial roofing may be hard to resist. It's one of the most affordable roofing materials on the market. However, you shouldn't take this to mean it's inferior. TPO roofing can outdo many other types of commercial roofing if you install it properly! The material is resistant to tears and mold and dirt buildups. It'll save you money in the long run because it also comes with low maintenance costs.

Energy Efficient
TPO roofing is popular in the U.S. because it's energy efficient. If you're tired of paying huge energy bills, you should consider the switch to TPO roofing. You might end up paying much less. The TPO roof reflects the sun's rays, ensuring your home temperature doesn't rise on sunny days and force your cooling system to work extra hard.

Environmentally Friendly
Unlike some roofing materials in the market, TPO residential and commercial roofing has no traces of chlorine, making it safer than alternative options. In addition, it's made from 100% recyclable material. That means that the materials will never be dumped into the environment or a landfill. It's an ideal commercial roofing material for environmentally conscious property owners.

Aesthetically Pleasing
Like many other residential and commercial roofing types, TPO is available in various colors. Therefore, you aren't restricted to the same look as everyone else's roof. See what color appeals to you and go for it. Some colors you can choose are black, grey, and even white. Additionally, TPO is very flexible, making it easy to adjust to various roof styles. The material can withstand many different shapes and is, therefore, suitable for multiple roofing designs.

Leak Protection
Whether you're looking for residential or commercial roofing, you want to be sure of one thing: that the roof you invest in won't wear out too soon. In this case, you might want to go for TPO roofing. The design of a TPO roof makes it easy to repair when it starts to eventually wear out. This means you won't have to replace it due to minor damage. Instead, your roof technician can help make the necessary repairs.

Easy to Install
Besides cost-friendly attributes, TPO roofing is also easy to install. You won't waste much time waiting for your roof installation experts to accomplish the task. Saving time on roof installation proves very important in commercial roofing, where you don't want to inconvenience your customers during repairs. The process of installing TPO roofing is as easy as the explanation below.

Installation begins with the roofer preparing the substrate (the surface where the TPO roof is to be installed)
The process involves cleaning the substrate exhaustively to ensure adhesion
The roofing technician then applies some form of insulation
The TPO is unfolded and affixed using a mechanical fastener or a specialized adhesive
A roofing technician welds the seam between the TPO strips forming watertight seals

Although the installation process seems easy and quick, you should never attempt to DIY this process unless you have the proper knowledge and training! Always leave roofing duties to trained personnel.

If you're looking for the right commercial roofing that'll save you money and last longer, you can bet on TPO roofing. Just understand that the success of your TPO commercial roofing will depend on how well it's installed.
