All About TPO Roofing

What is TPO?


TPO (short for Thermoplastic Polyolefin) is a modern Single-Ply Roof Membrane System. TPO was created around 1986 to compete with EPDM and PVC Membrane. Since it's creation and refinement through the decades, it has skyrocketed in popularity and has since become the most popular modern flat roof product to date.




How is TPO Installed?


TPO Roof Systems Generally Consist of Three Layers:
1. Roof Insulation: First, this roof insulation (called ISO Board, or Polyiso Insulation) is layed onto the roof surface, and Mechanically Attached (Screwed Down) with Fasteners and Plates.
2. TPO Membrane:
Next, the TPO Membrane is Layed onto the Roof Surface, and Mechanically Attached at the Seams with Fasteners and Plates. The TPO Membrane overlaps 6" adjacent to each other, then is Heat Welded with a Special Roofing tool at temperatures of up to 800 to 1,000 Degrees Fareinheit, creating a long-lasting waterproof splice.
3. TPO Flashing Details:
Lastly, above the roof deck, you may have Penetrations, Curbs, AC Units, Parapet Walls, and other such details. These are all wrapped and Welded into a Special Unreinforced TPO Flashing.




How Much Does TPO Cost?


There are many factors that determine how much a TPO Roof may cost, including the condition of the roof, the number of penetrations, insulation requirements, and types of materials and installation methods. We work with you to give you a long-lasting roof system that will meet your budget and give you a 20-Year NDL Warranty.

In comparison to other types of Roof Systems, TPO is typically a less-expensive alternative.
