new TPO Roofing in Dallas Texas

You may be familiar with TPO roofing, even if you don’t know it — if you’ve passed a building with a bright white roof, it was probably a TPO roof. As one of the most common roof types used in commercial buildings and facilities, TPO is known to be one of the most cost-efficient, durable single-ply roofing systems available.

But what is it, and why do so many commercial businesses use it in their roofing systems?

In this WaterTight blog, we’re looking at the benefits and critical aspects of TPO roofing and why it may be the right choice for your business. Keep reading to learn more!

What is TPO Roofing?

Thermoplastic Polyolefin, or TPO, is a single-ply roofing membrane and one of the fastest-growing commercial roofing systems on the market. The National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA) reported that TPO takes up about 40% of the commercial roofing market share. TPO roofing systems are usually made of a single layer of synthetics with reinforced scrim — primarily used to cover flat commercial roofs. TPO membranes are manufactured in sheets 10, 12, or 20 feet wide, rolled up, and then taken straight to your commercial facility. It’s become a trusted industry material due to its naturally reflective surface that reflects UV rays, helping your roof last longer.

TPO Roofing Costs

The costs for all roofing materials are very volatile and will vary based on the cost of materials and labor. Get in touch with the WaterTight Roofing team for more information!

Compared to other types of roofing, TPO installation can be a bit more expensive, however, as you’ll read below, its durability and long-lasting materials make it worth the extra cost in the long run.

To get the best and most accurate roofing prices, you will need to consider these key factors:

  • The size of your roof
  • Roof accessibility
  • Insulation, membrane, and installation choices
  • Any existing roof damage
  • Type of warranty

We always recommend having a trusted roofing company complete a full roof inspection before deciding on a roofing material, as the costs will always vary depending on the project.

Durability & Long-Term Benefits

A commercial single-ply membrane roof can last 30 years if properly installed and maintained (with the help of a professional roofing company, of course). However, there are quite a few other benefits of single-ply membrane roofing systems.


Since single-ply does not include the insulation factor, as a customer, you have more options to choose from to insulate your facility’s roof. Plus, during manufacturing, you can have fire retardant chemicals added to the TPO membrane and achieve Class A fire resistance listings.

Material & Cost-Efficiency

One of the most beneficial characteristics of TPO roofing is the material. The most common TPO material is bright white with highly reflective properties, which can reflect UV rays and heat from the building — saving you money in the summer months by using less energy to cool the building’s interior.
