Homeowners and business owners who are planning to install a membrane roofing system should talk to their roofing contractor about TPO. This is an excellent roofing option especially if you’re on a budget.
Read on to find out why TPO is one of the best roofing options available today:
TPO is a relatively new material, but it has steadily gained a following due to its affordability. It’s more affordable than other choices, such as PVC and EPDM. Thanks to its light weight, it’s also easier to install, reducing labor costs. Your contractor may also offer lower prices for roofing restoration.
Though TPO is generally cheaper than other single-ply membranes, it’s still a high-quality material that offers great energy efficiency. It has a reflective surface that helps protect homes and buildings from solar heat gain. This can lead to energy savings.
Comparable to Other Materials
TPO is less expensive than other materials like PVC, but it does offer great energy efficiency. It’s also hot-air weldable like PVC. In this regard, it’s highly comparable to more expensive materials in terms of performance, but comes at a lower cost.
Resistant to Common Roof Problems
Many other flat roofing materials experience problems with mold growth, punctures, tears and dirt accumulation. TPO offers great resistance to these common problems. When TPO is reinforced, it can even handle building movement and settling. When you install a high-quality TPO membrane, you can expect it to remain durable even with the building’s thermal contraction and expansion. Other single-ply membranes do not perform quite as well as TPO.
