Thermoplastic refers to a synthetic substance that is softened when heated, but hardens upon cooling. This roofing material can be fully adhered, mechanically fastened, or ballasted. TPO seam strengths are reported to be three to four times higher than EPDM roofing systems.
This is a popular choice for "Green" building as there are no plasticizers added and TPO does not degrade under UV radiation. It is available in white, grey, and black. Using white roof material helps reduce the "heat island effect" and solar heat gain in the building.
TPO flashing accessories are crucial to the performance of a TPO roofing system. These specialized accessories are heat-welded directly onto the TPO membrane, resulting in a watertight bond stronger than those with any other roofing system. Our professional roof installers and technicians are expertly trained in every aspect and detail of a TPO single-ply roofing system installation process, resulting in top-quality industry craftsmanship and a 100% watertight roof that lasts up to 30 years.
