TPO stands for Thermoplastic Polyolefin, which when it comes to commercial roofs is a single ply roof membrane that covers the top layer of the roof. In this article, we will discuss a few of the more important things you need to know about your TPO commercial roof.

2. The next thing you need to know about your TPO commercial roof is the life span it can achieve. All TPO commercial roofs are not created equal. They vary in the level of manufactures warranty they can get. This variation is based on the thickness of the membrane. A forty-five-millimeter membrane will get you between a ten and fifteen-year warranty, a sixty-millimeter membrane will get you fifteen to twenty-year warranty, and a ninety-millimeter membrane will get you a twenty to twenty-five-year warranty.

3. Everything depends on the quality of the company doing your TPO commercial roof installation, and you could use the highest rated materials and tools in the world, but if the commercial roof installation is not on a similar caliber, it will all be for nothing as your results will not be up to par.

TPO reflects sunlight which keeps commercial buildings cooler during hot weather and reduces energy bills. Another way in which TPO Roofing is environmentally friendly is that it is entirely recyclable.
