If you’re currently struggling in choosing your energy-efficient roofing options for your damaged roof repair, have you considered TPO? Here, Barnett Roofing Knoxville shares the significant benefits of this feature that make it a great option for your next project.
What Is TPO Roofing?
First introduced in the ’90s, TPO, or thermoplastic polyolefin, roofing is known as an alternative to rubber and PVC roofs. It is a single-ply roofing system made of three layers; the TPO polymer base, the polyester-reinforced fabric center, and the TPO compounded top ply. However, some companies use different fillers such as carbon fiber, fiberglass, and talc. Ethylene-propylene rubber and EPDM are also used to manufacture TPO roofs.
Benefits of TPO Roofing
Simple installation. TPO doesn’t require special equipment to install, which can help save time and cost for an emergency roof repair. You are free to choose in having the TPO installed fully adhered or mechanically fastened to the substrate, or weighed down using ballast. This also gives you flexibility with labor costs.
Durability. TPO’s flexible outer layer offers resistance against common causes of puncturing and tearing, from moderate foot traffic to pieces of gravel. TPO even has inherent resistance against bacteria and algae. This helps keep the roof tidy and prevents buildup that may degrade roofing seams.
Cost-effectiveness. TPO roofing costs relatively lower per square foot, which can add up to significant savings when covering large roofing areas.
