Many business owners today are considering thermoplastic olefin (TPO) roofs for their commercial buildings. In today’s post, local roof repair services Earl W. Johnston Roofing takes a look at the advantages of TPO roofing.
Ease of Installation
TPO roof membranes are typically manufactured with wide sheets and are quite lightweight. As such, the material is easier to install than other commercial roofing materials because there are fewer seams. During installation, experienced contractors mechanically attach them by fastening plates to secure the roof material. This saves time and effort when it comes to both installation and future maintenance.
Manufacturers add fiberglass and talc to the TPO membrane to ensure its longevity. This also gives it better protective capacity than EPDM. TPO can resist mold growth, dirt accumulation and impact that causes tears, and punctures. Moreover, reinforced TPO roofing membranes can handle thermal expansion and contraction better than other single-ply roofing types.
Wide Variety of Colors
TPO roofing is available in a wide variety of colors, making it versatile from a design standpoint too. It also comes with special coatings to make it more reflective and energy-efficient.
If you’re looking for ways to reduce your carbon footprint, then investing in a TPO roof is worth considering. With this type of roof installed, you can expect consistent indoor comfort during the summer while reducing air conditioning expenses.
