TPO Roofing Commecial Connecticut Company Choice

TPO coating membranes have been manufactured in the U.S. since the early 90s and are now the fastest growing segment of the U.S. single-ply roofing membranes industry.

TPO roofing is made of propylene ethylene rubber. A special technology is used to chemically bind rubber, propylene (which is a byproduct of oil refining) and ethylene (a gaseous organic substance). Then, there are fillers added to the mix, such as carbon filler and fiberglass. These strengthen the TPOI membrane and ensure its durability. It is the choice that a Connecticut commercial roofing company chooses, and has a long lifespan for business owners.
