Are you looking for a durable, economical, and energy-efficient commercial roof? One of the best choices on today’s market is TPO roofing. This single-ply rubber-membrane roofing system offers many of the same advantages as other commercial rubber roofing systems, like EPDM and PVC. However, TPO is the upgraded version—with all the benefits and none of the drawbacks.

What Is TPO Roofing Material?
TPO roofing material consists of a durable yet highly flexible single-ply rubber membrane. TPO roof membranes have a thermoplastic polyolefin base and top layer with a polyester-reinforced fabric middle.
The membranes also contain fillers like carbon and fiberglass for extra durability.
TPO is ideal for commercial roofing applications with a flat roof. We have the choice of three different installation methods: ballasted, mechanically attached, or fully adhered.
The Benefits of Choosing a TPO Roof System for Commercial Buildings
Why is TPO such an optimal choice for commercial roofing systems? It’s simple: TPO roofs provide numerous short-term and long-term benefits. Let’s take a look.
1. It’s Cost-Effective
The affordability of the materials is among the best benefits of TPO roofing. TPO provides virtually the same benefits and advantages as PVC, a comparable rubber roofing membrane, but at a lower price point. Plus, you can heat-weld seams for easy installation.
2. It’s Highly Flexible and Durable
TPO is a single-ply rubber membrane, which means that it’s both durable and highly flexible. That natural flexibility makes installing TPO on complex roofs or around curves or piping, such as HVAC equipment, relatively simple. Although TPO is a relatively new product that emerged in the early 2000s, TPO systems have already shown excellent longevity.
3. It’s Superior at Energy Efficiency
Did you know that TPO is a “cool roof?” To put it simply, it has excellent energy efficiency and UV resistance, allowing for a considerable reduction in heat transfer than what standard commercial roofing materials provide. Although TPO roofs come in black, white, or gray, the white systems offer the highest UV resistance and energy efficiency.
4. It’s Simple to Install
When it comes to installation, TPO systems are quite simple. Most TPO roofing material comes in long sheets or rolls, so it’s easier for professionals to install than other roofing styles, saving you labor costs.
At Gotcha Covered Contracting, we have extensive experience installing TPO roofs, and every one of our roofing contractors is highly knowledgeable about all three installation methods. We’re also fully licensed and insured, so you can have peace of mind putting your TPO roof installation in the hands of experts.
5. It’s Eco-Friendly
TPO (or any single-ply rubber roofing membrane) is an excellent choice if you’re committed to eco-friendly and sustainable roofing. In fact, TPO is 100% recyclable, which means when it’s time for a new roof, you can send all the old material to a recycling facility.
6. It’s Damage-Resistant
Another significant benefit of TPO roofing is its superior puncture-and-abuse resistance, which increases its overall longevity. In addition, TPO roofing material is anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-mold—and it also naturally resists dirt and other dust.
