What is TPO Roofing?

TPO roofing commercial roof systems

Also known as thermoplastic polyolefin, TPO is a single-ply roofing material that is largely used in industrial parks all around the US. They usually have a bright white color, which creates a great look for this type of roofing.

TPO is a combination of different types of rubber. It is used mainly for flat commercial roofing CT systems and is UV resistant, while also being energy-efficient, which makes it the most favorite choice of many people.

There are several insulation materials which can be used with TPO roofing, including: expanded polystyrene – which is basically known for its waterproofing qualities, polyisocyanurate- which is very resistant to heat, or extruded polystyrene – which can be found in colors such as green, blue or pink.

TPO roofing can be fixed mechanically or via a bonding adhesive, which is adhered to the cover board. If installed properly, TPO roofs can last for about 10-20 years. At the same time, they need regular maintenance and attention.

An important fact to be noted here is that TPO is quite resistant to corrosion, and therefore can be cleaned easily. Also, it is resistant to algae and mildew, so it does not need to be treated against these two natural elements.
