One of the trends within the roofing industry, especially on commercial buildings, is TPO roofing. TPO (Thermoplastic Polyolefin) is a type of single-ply roofing system which has gained popularity among building owners looking for a durable, reflective roof. This single-ply membrane, usually a blend of polypropylene and ethylene-propylene rubber, covers the surface of the roof.
An added benefit with TPO roof types is its white reflective surface, which helps reflect the sun’s light and keep buildings efficiently cooler. Additionally, TPO resists tears and punctures as well as mold and algae growth. The result is an ideal commercial roofing system that is reliable, cost-effective, energy efficient, and easy to install.
