TPO (Thermoplastic Polyolefin) roofing was first introduced in the 1990s. This roofing system offers the same benefits of heat-welded seams (just like PVC) at a price point that is more affordable, closer to that of EPDM roofing. Like EPDM, TPO is also made of rubber but with the added components of ethylene and propylene, chemically bonded with a variety of fillers (such as talc and fiberglass) to make for one tough roofing system. In fact, this unique blend of materials helps make TPO one of the most durable flat roofing systems available on the market, today.
Another feature of TPO is that it offers one of the thickest top-plys available, making it more sustainable for roofs that experience frequent foot traffic, while also minimizing the need for constant maintenance. When you own a commercial property, you have bigger concerns that upkeep on your roof. With TPO roofing, you can save time on maintenance and get back to the things that matter.
TPO comes in three sizes – 8’, 10’, and 12’. Having multiple sizes means your contractor can provide a better, more custom fit to the exact shape of your roof. This greatly reduces the number of seams that are present across your roof, as well as the chance for leaks that seams can create.
TPO roofing has an average lifespan of anywhere between 15 to 20 years. TPO has a lifespan similar to EPDM, if not slightly better. This is, in part, because of the way TPO handles the extremes of both hot and cold without cracking or splitting, making it ideal for any season!
As with any roofing solution from ProCraft Exteriors, we offer a 10 year, no leak guarantee on TPO installations. If your TPO roof leaks in 10 years or less, we’ll come out and resolve the issue at no cost to you. This is just one of the many ways that we stand behind our products and services.
Another wonderful benefit of TPO is its environmental friendliness. Being 100% recyclable, TPO reduces roofing waste that can so often add to local landfills. TPO is also chlorine-free, both in production and in the final product. Chlorine can be environmentally hazardous, so a roofing without chlorine is a better roof for Mother Nature. This makes TPO a roofing system that you can feel good about, both in the protection that it provides your home, as well as the impact it will have on the environment.
