A single ply membrane TPO (Thermoplastic Polyolefin) is essentially a combination of plastic and rubber. These two compounds are brought together using state-of-the-art manufacturing technology that superheats the compound mixture before it can be formed as a single product. The end result is a reliable and energy efficient roofing product that will lower your facility’s overall costs and provide longevity to your roofing system. The chemical composition and formulation of TPO means that it will not degrade over time due to UV radiation and ozone and chemical exposure, which can be a common problem among competing nylon-based products.

As a result of these incredible benefits, single ply membrane TPO is the fastest growing commercial roofing product in the United States. It is being utilized by storage facilities, warehouses, and other buildings to drastically lower costs. Commercial and industrial demand for heat-reflective and energy efficient roofing solutions continues to grow, which is why companies like WaterTight Roofing in Texas are offering professionally installed TPO single-ply roofing membranes.

Is Single Ply Thermoplastic Polyolefin Roofing the Best Choice?

There are numerous benefits to single ply TPO that make it an attractive choice for restoring a commercial metal roof. Essentially, TPO converts a hot metal roof into a cool and energy efficient reflective white roof. Through using professional installers from a company like WaterTight Roofing, a commercial metal roof can be fitted with TPO without any invasive construction that will interrupt your daily business.

This cost-saving installation process is just the beginning of the economic impact of TPO. By providing exceptional resistance to ultraviolet rays, ozone, and chemical exposure, TPO increases the lifespan of your existing roofing system, thus extending the need for a full replacement. Additionally, TPO’s reflective and atmospheric-resistant properties help reduce the temperature of the roof, therefore reducing the temperature of the facility as a whole.

Single ply TPO will not only reduce your daily operational costs and push back the need to fully refurbish your existing roof, but it will also increase the value of your commercial facility as a whole.

Customers and vendors will appreciate your dedication to energy efficiency and the environment, as well as the added protection to their products and inventory. Adding single ply TPO to your roofing system will also make your facility a more attractive purchase by potential buyers if you are ever in the market to sell. They will associate the high level of maintenance and care that you’ve placed on your roof to the rest of your facility.

Overall, TPO has numerous benefits that certainly outweigh any initial investment, and with zero disruption to daily business, installation and construction headaches are a thing of the past. Additionally, when working with experts from a company like WaterTight Roofing, your new TPO roof comes with a 15-20 year warranty. Don’t wait for the weather to get the best of your facility’s roof.
