TPO Roofing Membranes
TPO is a single-ply roofing membrane that is attached to a building to provide protection from the elements. The base of a TPO roofing system is a steel deck attached directly to the top of your building. Attached to the top of this steel deck is one or more layers of insulation that provide supplementary protection from the Southwest Florida weather. A roofing board is fixed on top of the insulation and fasteners are used to link the sheets of TPO polymer to the roofing board. Manufacturer approved fastening devices are then used to connect the sheets of TPO to one another and create a practically seamless finish.
TPO offers several unique advantages over other commercial roofing systems including increased energy efficiency. Studies have shown that over a ten year period, TPO roofing membranes can help save up to $250,000 in cooling costs in warmer climates such as Florida by reflecting heat energy produced by the sun. Moreover, these membranes have become popular choices for “green” properties due to their lack of plasticizers and resistance to UV radiation degradation. Frequently, TPO membranes come in black, white and gray to create an appealing look for your roof.
