The TPO Advantage
BENEFITS OF TPO ROOF SYSTEMS
Carlisle SynTec Systems has been the leader in the commercial, single ply roofing industry for 50 years. Carlisle products have been installed worldwide, and at Rauth Roofing Limited, are our largest supplier of single ply systems. Each roofing system has their own benefits, below is some information from Carlisle, that we at Rauth feel attribute to the TPO system:
One of the largest factors that makes TPO roofing attractive both in residential and commercial construction is its reasonable cost. TPO offers many of the same benefits as PVC roofing, such as hot-air weldable seams and energy efficiency, but at a lower cost.
In comparison to other thermoplastic membranes, TPO resists the accumulation of dirt, mold, tears and punctures. It is made to be flexible and can allow for a home or building’s movement or settling. Reinforced TPO membranes can handle a building’s thermal expansion and contraction more effectively than other single ply roofing products which is important for employers who have locations in areas with a fluctuating climate, like South Western Ontario
Ease of installation
In general TPO membranes are manufactured with wider sheets and are light weight. This means that the material is easier to install and there is less seams. Less work and time associated with the installation translates into direct savings for the business owner for the cost of installation.
The energy efficiency of TPO roofing membranes makes them highly attractive to business owners who want to have the benefits of savings on their cooling costs as well as help the environment by reducing the carbon footprint. TPO’s membrane’s white reflective surface exceeds the EPA’s ENERGY STAR requirements and white, tan and gray are listed with the Cool Roof Rating Council. This means that having a TPO roof on your home or building will keep the interior thermally comfortable on hot summer days while reducing your air conditioning costs.
Carlisle offers various types of TPO membranes in multiple thicknesses and as an approved and ESP award winner, Rauth Roofing Limited should be your choice when installing your next TPO roofing system.
