Are you looking for a good roofing option other than the usual asphalt shingle and metal roofing? If you answered yes, then you should consider getting thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO) roofing. But what is it, and what are the benefits of picking this roofing material?
What Is TPO Roofing?
TPO is a type of synthetic material that is basically a combination of tough plastics and rubber. The material can be manufactured into multi-layered sheets, which can be rolled out and secured to the roof deck to form a seamless, waterproof surface secured by fasteners, adhesives or both.
TPO roofing does not have any wood or metal-based components, making it virtually immune to rust and rot. If installed properly by a certified roofing company, TPO roofing can withstand scratches, impacts, strong winds and extended exposure to (ultraviolet) UV rays that would otherwise wear out other roofing options.
Cost and Ease of Installation
Because TPO roofing is shipped in sheets that can cover a large area, installing this type of roofing is faster and easier than installing asphalt shingles. Factor in the ease of producing TPO with shorter installation times, and you can expect it to cost less than other more popular roofing alternatives.
Great Energy Efficiency
Aside from helping you cut down on the initial cost of roof replacement, TPO roofing also helps you get more value out of your investment because of its high thermal resistance. Any roofer would agree that TPO is an energy-efficient option that can help you reduce your household’s monthly electric bill.
