TPO is a relative newcomer to the market – coming into popular use in the 1990s. Its name, short for thermoplastic polyolefin, combines polypropylene plastic and ethylene propylene rubber with a flexible scrim. The result is a pliant barrier that seals out leaks, reflects the sun’s energy, and resists thermal shock.
- Will not crack or tear
- Stands up to ozone and pollution
- Reflects up to 90 percent of solar heat, making it a cool roof

TPO roofing is applied in wide, lightweight rolls whose edges are fused together. When properly applied by an experienced commercial roofing service, these seams will not come apart. You will get the protection of a continuous expanse over your entire rooftop. Protrusions like vents, HVAC units and pipes need special reinforcing, and we have the skill and knowledge to do it right.
TPO roofing costs less than other single-ply surfaces, with all of their advantages: flexibility and durability. Choose among several colors and thicknesses to fit your budget. The membrane can be adhered mechanically, with a self-adhesive, or ballasted. It is also cost effective because you need less of it to cover an entire flat surface. Proper technique is very important to its longevity, and you have found it here.
Why Flexibility is Important
Freeze-thaw cycles and normal building movement wear down rigid surfaces over time. No matter what substrate is underneath, TPO will give with natural movement. Because it is pliable, it will not split, tear or crack. This quality is important to preventing leaks, which are difficult to spot in flat roofs.
TPO roofing also resists the ponding effect, which is when water collects in a low point on the surface. Ponding leads to many kinds of moisture damage: rotting of building materials, drips, and even harmful mold. When you have a monolithic membrane that covers from edge to edge, this will not happen.
When properly applied, the seams will stay fast and strong. In the event the surface is punctured by wind-driven debris, special sealant patches will fix it quickly and securely. You will not have to worry about future leaks when you choose us as your TPO roofing contractor.
Flat roofs get no relief from the sun, but you can enjoy utility savings significantly with this reflective surface. White offers the most advantages but the other color choices, gray and black, also can be used as a cool roof application. Darker colors can also emit solar energy back into the building at night to save you on winter heating bills.
On average, you can save up to $3,500 a year on HVAC bills. Your employees or guests will enjoy more comfortable air with no extra effort on your part. Call now for an experienced roofing service and take advantage of the savings.
The Energy Star Council says TPO Roofing is:
- 90 percent heat-reflective for the first three years
- 80 percent heat-reflective after three years
With Texas emitting more greenhouse gases than any other state, doesn’t it make sense to lighten your carbon footprint with a reflective commercial roof?
Keeping it clean and reflective involves little more than regular power washings. Pollution, dirt and grime are easily washed off, saving you on maintenance costs. If you want an extra measure of protection from water and UV rays, we can add a polyurethane topcoat.
Even by itself, TPO roofing can last 10 to 20 years with regular common sense maintenance and inspections after a storm. And remember that if bad weather does strike, we offer reliable emergency roof repair services.
We invite you to discover advanced rooftop solutions that prevent leaks, save you on cooling costs, and reduce the need for constant repairs. Call now.
