If you’re looking for a new or replacement commercial roofing system for a flat or low-slope roof application, consider TPO roofing from Sun Roofing Contractors. The durability, energy efficiency, and affordability of TPO roofing have made it the fastest growing segment of the commercial roofing industry.
TPO roofing is a single-ply membrane created from rubber, ethylene and propylene that is bonded together with a polyester scrim to create a material with superior strength and durability. TPO roofing is resistant to tears, punctures, impact damage, UV rays, ozone, chemical exposure, heat, and extreme weather. The flexibility of TPO allows for building settling and movement as well as keeping it flexible in low temperatures.
TPO roofing is an energy efficient and environmentally friendly commercial roofing option. It is available in white, light grey, and black. Sun Roofing Contractors recommends white TPO roofing for its superior energy efficiency. Rather than absorbing the sun’s rays, as some other commercial roofing options do, white TPO roofing reflects up to 87 percent of UV rays. White TPO roofing can reduce your cooling costs by up to 30 percent, making it a great choice for green building. It meets and exceeds the EPA’s ENERGY STAR performance levels. It resists mold, algae, and dirt buildup, all of which can degrade the reflectivity and reduce energy savings. TPO roofing is also 100 percent recyclable.
TPO roofing is available in multiple sizes and thicknesses. Wide widths reduce the number of required seams, which in turn reduces labor and installation costs. The seams are hot-air welded, creating a water-tight bond that offers six times the strength of glued seams and three times that of taped seams. The heat welded seams will not break down. TPO roofing can be installed one of three ways: fully adhered, mechanically attached, or ballasted, enabling Sun Roofing Contractors to comply with virtually all building codes and requirements.
