TPO Roof Installation

8 Benefits of TPO Roofing

One of the most common and quality choice of roof a commercial property owner can make is a TPO roof. At LOA, we’ve personally seen TPO roofing explore in popularity as more and more people learn about it and its benefits.

If you’re not familiar with TPO roofing, it’s a thin and reflective type of roof that’s commonly used for commercial roof projects. It is made from single-ply TPO (Thermoplastic polyolefin) roofing and is comprised of three layers:

  • • TPO polymer base
  • • Polyester-reinforced scrim
  • • TPO compounded top ply

There are many benefits to opting for a TPO roof when compared with some of the other types of commercial roofs. For example, it is environmentally friendly, cost-effective, and easy to install. Here’s more about what to know about Thermoplastic Polyolefin roofing material.

Benefits of a TPO Roof

8 Benefits of TPO Roofs:

Here’s a breakdown of just some of the reasons why the experts at LOA Construction love to work with TPO roofing:

1. Cost Effectiveness

Compared with other types of commercial roofing, we tend to recommend TPO roofing because it’s a more affordable option. However, while TPO has a lower price tag, it doesn’t sacrifice on quality.

For instance, a TPO roof has strong seams and offers excellent puncture-resistance, fire-resistance, and can even hold up well when exposed to certain chemicals.

2. Versatility

If you’re looking for a more versatile and flexible roofing option, TPO is the roof type for you! Thanks to its flexibility, it can easily adjust to a wide range of roof types – both commercial and residential.

Adjustability also makes it a bit easier for our roofers to work with.

3. Easy Installation

Thanks to its lightweight makeup and it coming in wide sheets, TPO roofing is pretty easy to install. Also, when a commercial property has a roof installation, the business will likely have to shut down for a few days.

As a result, you’ll need to choose a roofing type that’s easy to install and as quickly as possible. So that re-opening your business isn’t too delayed, you should try TPO for your next roofing installation!

4. Protection Against Leaks

TPO roofing is welded with hot air, making it highly resilient against leaks. In addition, since TPO roofing seams are melded together, this makes leak repair quite a bit easier for our team in the instances when leaking occurs.

If you aren’t checking for leaks, you can always contact your local roofing company for preventative maintenance services and request an appointment with them.

5. Low Maintenance

Another great reason to choose TPO is due to its overall low maintenance. A TPO roof’s surface generally needs only to be cleaned (to prevent too much buildup of debris or pests) and washed using a pressure washer.

If the roof is still dirty following a thorough cleaning and washing, repeat the process again until it is clean. You should also check for any signs of damage (check the seams and transitions between the membrane) or poor drainage. Read more about TPO maintenance here.

6. Energy Efficiency & Environmental Friendliness

Commercial property and homeowners will benefit from the heat-reflective properties that come with TPO roofing. In addition, they are highly resistant to ultraviolet rays, ozone, and chemical exposure alike.

Thanks to these factors, TPO roofing can help you save on cooling expenses, especially throughout Texas heat. It’s also worth noting that TPO roofs are 100% recyclable, making them environmentally friendly.

7. Great Longevity

While not as long lasting as a metal roof, your TPO roof will still last you quite a while. You can expect a TPO roof installation to last around 30 years or more.

Keep in mind that TPO roof longevity is dependent on how well it’s installed, and how well you maintain it throughout its lifetime.

8. Aesthetic Appeal

Lastly, TPO roofing is an aesthetically appealing, clean look for any commercial building. Its clean appearance will even work well for some residential properties.

There are several colors available for TPO roofing, including white, black, and gray. Because of its versatility and clean appearance, TPO can look great on a number of different types of buildings.

Considering TPO Roofing?

Before moving forward with an Austin or Houston TPO roof project, make sure to check with your local roofing team about a number of points:

  • • TPO is a Newer Material: Since it’s a newer type of roofing material, it doesn’t have the proven track record and data when compared with other roofing types.
  • • TPO is Currently Being Improved: To go along with this, since it’s a newer roof type, there are continuous improvements being made. Your local roofing company will adjust as necessary with your TPO installation or repair.
