Thermoplastic Olefin Roofing (TPO)

TPO ROOFING

Are you looking to install a single ply roofing material that will be energy efficient and are evaluating your options? Consider TPO (thermoplastic olefin) roofing. TPO is advertised to have the benefits of two of its direct competitors, EPDM and PVC roofs but without the drawbacks and extra costs.

Meaning that a TPO roof is as UV-resistant and as heat-resistant as EPDM, and as heat-weldable as PVC. TPO also has its disadvantages that are primarily due to the fact that TPO is a fairly new roofing material on the market and research still continues to find the most durable and long lasting product formulation. Relative to the other roofing options, the long-run usage of TPO is still not very clear. However, latest versions of TPO are being experimented and formulated to produce a lighter, more durable and practical TPO roof.



TPO is one of the most cost-effective and reasonably priced roofing materials that you will find in the market. If you have troubles with staying on budget, then TPO is a pretty sensible option to go for. Similar to PVC roofing, TPO provides hot-air weld-able seams that work great at utilizing energy in the most efficient manner. TPO has an insightful, soft-colored surface that helps to keep the interior cool while enhancing the carbon footprint in order to keep the temperature of the building/space moderate. In case of high thermal and solar loading, it has been reported that TPO roofs tend to wear out faster than other roofing options. This can be a budding problem for homeowners/companies where the work involves heated temperatures (i.e. more southern environments). When Wanamaker Group has evaluated the environment to be a safe candidate for TPO roofing, it is reasonably resistant to all kinds of damages such as wear & tear, leakages, holes, molds and mushroom growth. These problems are commonly witnessed in other commercial roofs. Additionally, TPO expands and contracts according to the changes in the outside temperature.
