What is TPO roofing made of?

What is TPO roofing composed of? Thermoplastic Polyolefin, or TPO for short, consists of the resilient and long-lasting chemical compound polypropylene. This material has been employed in a vast array of professional and domestic products due to its remarkable elasticity. Plus, its corrosion-resistant surface makes it ideal for climates exposed to higher levels of heat and humidity. Because it's highly reflective, TPO roofs can help lower energy costs inside buildings by reflecting more of the sun’s light and preventing excessive heat buildup. Combining all these benefits together provides a worry-free solution to protecting your business from the harsh outdoor elements.

What is the cost of TPO roofing?

TPO (thermoplastic polyolefin) roofing has become increasingly popular in recent years due to its versatile nature and reliable durability. Its estimated cost ranges between $5 to $9 per square foot, depending on the quality and type of material. For a more precise estimate, the best way to go is to call one of our experienced team members and they will be delighted to assist you. To add an extra layer of convenience, TPO usually comes in a bright white color that reflects UV rays which helps reduce energy usage, keeping temperatures low and saving you money on your energy bills during hotter months.

TPO Roofing Installation

TPO roofing has become increasingly popular over the past few years due to its reliable performance and low-maintenance characteristics. Installation of TPO roofs is relatively simple, depending on the state of the existing roof structure. The single-ply TPO membrane can easily be applied directly to the roof deck or fastened with adhesives. It can also be heat-welded near chimneys for greater strength and durability.

What's more, TPO membranes come in a variety of colors ranging from white and gray to tan which enables you to customize your roof with ease. However, if you're looking for something more specialized, our experienced team of experts at Ruca Consulting is here to help you find the right shade or pattern combination for your needs.

Advantages of TPO roofing

  • In addition to being reflective and energy efficient, TPO roofing also has a strong seam lap design. This specialized design keeps water tightness under extreme environmental conditions, like wind-driven rain and hail. 
  • TPO Membranes are highly resistant to mechanical and chemical damage caused by ozone, ultraviolet radiation, and other atmospheric pollutants; they are also well-suited for most types of insulation systems. 
  • Additionally, the installation process is usually quicker than other roofing options, saving time on the job. 

Therefore, with its quality construction and the benefits of energy efficiency and cost-savings, TPO roofing systems have become a popular choice for many types of commercial buildings.

Can TPO be applied over an existing roof?

TPO roofing is a great roofing material for many reasons, but its application still must be done properly to ensure that you are getting the best protection for your home or building.

When installing TPO over an existing roof system, there are a few considerations to keep in mind. First and foremost, any wet insulation must be removed from the existing roof before beginning installation. After this has been done, then an insulation board can be applied over an existing built-up roof system or single-ply membrane before applying the TPO system. With these precautions, installing a TPO system over an existing roof system can be a great way to extend your current roof's lifespan while enjoying the benefits that TPO offers.
