As a relative newcomer to the commercial roofing industry, TPO has quickly become one of the most popular choices in single-ply roofing materials. Developed in the 1990s and created from a blend of ethylene, propylene, rubber and fiberglass, TPO’s benefits make it an ideal material for Florida roofs.
TPO roofs are suitable for residential, commercial and industrial-use buildings in a variety of slopes and can be installed using a variety of application methods:
The application method used depends on the type of roof as well as the typical weather conditions in the geographical area in which the building lives. Moreover, TPO seams are typically 3–4 times stronger than the adhesive and taped seams of EPDM roofing membranes. Properly applied and maintained, TPO roofs can be expected to last up to 20 years. Ask about 10, 15 or 20-year manufacturer’s warranties on TPO roofing systems.
Pricing varies depending on the specifications, materials and application methods chosen, but TPO roofing is typically priced reasonably about halfway between EPDM and PVC roofs.
