What is a TPO Roof?
The term “TPO” stands for “thermoplastic polyolefin,” and is one of the most popular forms of single-ply membranes. These kinds of membranes are designed using a combination of rubber, plastic, or composite synthetics. The result is a flexible but sturdy layer of material which can then be fastened, ballasted, or glued on by chemical means to any roofing insulation.
Typically installed on flat or low-slope roofs in large sheets, the TPO membrane is reinforced with a scrim for added stability. Before the TPO is attached to a roof, it can be rolled up or folded, allowing for easy transportation to any property.
White in color, commercial TPO membranes help to prevent a building from absorbing too much solar heat, which can drive up energy costs to maintain a comfortable environment inside. TPO is also waterproof, which can protect your property from water intrusion.
How is TPO Roofing Installed?
Our residential and commercial TPO installers first prepare the surface of your roof by removing any existing material and cleaning the substrate. Following this, we install insulation that helps to block the heat exchange between your building and the outside environment. Finally, TPO roofing is rolled out in sheets and secured to your roof with a special adhesive or a mechanical fastener. Ultimately, however, the specific installation methods we’ll use depends on the unique qualities and features of your structure.
How Long Does a TPO Roof Last?
Usually, TPO roofs can last at least 20 years on their own since they are so tightly adhered to a tough scrim made of polyester. However, with dedicated maintenance, TPO roofs may potentially last 10-15 years longer.
Some of the ways to keep a TPO roof in great condition include:
- Keep the roof clean: Dirt, debris, and standing water can damage a TPO roof over time. Regularly clean the roof surface and remove any debris, leaves, or other materials that can accumulate on the roof.
- Perform maintenance as needed: Follow the manufacturer's recommended maintenance procedures, which may include cleaning, repairs, or other tasks.
- Proper drainage: Ensure that water can drain effectively from the roof to prevent ponding, which can damage the TPO membrane.
- Prevent foot traffic: Limit foot traffic on the TPO roof as much as possible to avoid punctures or damage to the membrane.
- Regular inspections: Have your roof professionally inspected regularly to identify any issues, such as punctures, tears, or cracks. Addressing these problems promptly can prevent them from becoming bigger issues.

What Are the Benefits of Commercial TPO Roofing?
Commercial property owners usually want to install TPO roofing because of its durability and affordability, but one of the best reasons business owners choose TPO roofing membranes is that they can significantly improve a building’s energy efficiency. Some commercial roofing membranes, but especially darker ones, absorb heat, which can make the interior of a commercial property hotter. This, in turn, requires the building's HVAC systems to work harder to maintain a comfortable environment, resulting in higher energy costs and unnecessary wear-and-tear on the HVAC system. TPO roofing, on the other hand, is light in color, which reflects sunlight and heat away from the building and keeps the interior noticeably cooler.
