TPO Roofing Installation & Repair
Commercial TPO Roofing Services in DFW
Thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO) is the fastest-growing segment of the commercial roofing industry. TPO membranes are single-ply roof membranes. They are designed to be an improvement on the durability of EPDM rubber. TPO Roofs have been tested as having excellent resistance to ozone, are algae-resistant, environmentally friendly, and safe to install.
About TPO Roofs
Thermoplastic polyolefin is highly resistant to tears, impacts, and punctures with good flexibility to allow for building movement. Thermoplastic polyolefin is available in white, light gray, and black, but white is probably the best choice for reflecting heat.
Thermoplastic polyolefin membranes are installed fully-adhered, mechanically-attached or ballasted. Fully-adhered means that the roof is “glued” to the substrate using a special adhesive. What actually happens is the glue creates a chemical bond with the membrane. Ballasted simply means the membrane is loosely laid over the top of the roof, sealed at all penetrations and around the perimeter, and then a ballast is put on it to hold it in place. Sometimes concrete pavers are used in their place. Mechanically-attached membranes are those that use some type of special screw-type fastener to secure the roof material.
