TPO & PVC Roofing
Energy efficient options
What is TPO roofing? Thermoplastic Polyolefin (or TPO) roofing systems is a single-ply roofing option that is made up of a membrane with reinforcing scrim embedded, that covers the surface of the roof. Thermoplastic Polyolefin can be misleading as it is not made of plastic. Instead, it is usually composed of a blend of polypropylene and ethylene-propylene rubber.
Benefits of TPO Roofing:
- Heat Reflective
- Lower Price Point
- Durable Material
- Reduce shrinkage
- Energy Efficient
TPO’s lightweight and flexibility makes it simple to install with fewer seams. Less work and time spent on installing translates into saving for the buyer. TPO roofing resists bacteria, debris, algae, and dirt. It also resists ultraviolent, chemical exposure, and debris build-ups. The flexibility of TPO allows it to withstand punctures, tears, and impact damage.
When appropriately installed, TPO roofs have a life span of 22 to 30 years.
What is PVC roofing? PVC roofing (or Polyvinyl Chloride) is another single-ply roofing option for flat or low sloping roofs. PVC roofing is a synthetic plastic polymer that is widely produced and a popular choice for building owners as it leaves less scrap and waste at the job site.
Benefits of PVC Roofing:
- Light Weight
- Can Withstand Harsh Environments
- Keeps Building Temperature Cooler
- Can Be Installed Directly Over Existing Membranes
- Highly Flame Resistant
When appropriately installed, PVC roofing has a life span of 20 years.
Commercial TPO & PVC Roofs
Both TPO & PVC roofing systems are widely popular amongst most commercial facilities. Both roof options are easy and quick to install. They offer business owners savings due to their resilience and energy-conserving attributes.
Also, it is essential to consider the longevity of your building’s new roof. You will need a roofing option that can withstand harsh conditions of the winter months and possible ricochet of debris in storms. Both TPO and PVC’s single-ply membrane allow for this durability and confidence in knowing that your building’s roof is protected for many years to come.
