Thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO) is a type of single-ply roof membrane that offers numerous advantages for commercial applications. TPO has excellent weathering characteristics for long-term rooftop performance and is highly reflective to aid in the reduction of cooling expenses. The JCB Roofing crew has installed millions of square feet of TPO and offers multiple brands and warranty options to meet the needs of our clients.
Get the Benefits of TPO
Originally used in the auto industry because it does not expand or contract due to temperature fluctuations, TPO has been adapted for the roofing industry with outstanding results. Here’s more about the primary benefits of TPO.
- Heat-welded seams and a polyester reinforced scrim make TPO highly resistant to UV rays, chemicals, punctures and tears.
- TPO roofing is both heat-reflective and energy-efficient. Premium materials are ENERGY STAR®-qualified and certified by the Cool Roof Rating Council.
- The TPO manufacturing process allows for extra-wide sheets that speed up the installation process. TPO can often be installed over an existing roof installation without structural alterations.
TPO Creates a Better Environment
From the air, as much as 40% of the surface of a city is composed of black roof surfaces. Because black absorbs great amounts of heat, this creates a need for more energy to cool urban areas that are hotter than surrounding suburban areas. In contrast, white roofs reflect the sun’s radiant heat and quickly release absorbed heat into the atmosphere. With a reflective TPO roof, you can keep your building cooler and lessen the need for indoor air conditioning while reducing the urban heat island effect. Your business may also qualify for LEED credits and tax incentives by installing reflective TPO roof membranes.
