Are you looking for a roofing upgrade? Your roofing system can be improved by switching to TPO roofing, especially if you are looking for high-resistant and energy-efficient roofing material. If you’re not familiar with TPO roofing, Pruden Roofing is here to discuss its advantages.
What Is TPO?
Thermoplastic Polyolefin or referred to as TPO is made of polypropylene and ethylene-propylene rubber polymerized. It’s a single-ply reflective roofing membrane that is typically installed in a mechanically attached system. TPO roofing was first introduced on the market in the 1990s. It was known to be a more economical alternative to PVC roofing materials.
The TPO’s reflective membrane is composed of three parts, TPO polymer base, polyester-reinforced fabric middle, and thermoplastic polyolefin compounded pinnacle ply.
Advantages of TPO Roofing
1. TPO roofing is cost-effective. It’s a reasonable option for residential or commercial roofing projects.
2. The material is high-resistant and durable. It’s impressively resistant to bacteria, debris, algae, and other dirt. It’s safe against ultraviolet rays and even chemical exposure. The TPO’s flexible membrane is also strong against punctures, tears, and impact damage.
3. TPO roofing is easy to install because of its lightweight and flexible properties. The setup is much simpler compared to other roofing materials. TPO roofing has fewer seams, making it easy for roofers to install. This means less working time on installment and maintenance, saving you time and energy.
4. Another reason why TPO is popular with many homeowners is its energy efficiency values. TPO has a white reflective surface that helps keep the interior of your home to be thermally comfortable even during heat season. Without the excess heat and humidity inside of your home, your HVAC system relaxes, helping you reduce your energy bills.
