Advantages of TPO Roofing

Advantages of TPO Roofing

Are you looking for a cost-effective, energy-saving option for your business roof? Is your goal to maximize your property’s savings in repairs and maintenance?  If so, TPO roofing may be the right match for you and your business. 

TPO (Thermoplastic Polyolefin) is a single-ply roofing membrane made of rubber and is adhered to the roof – allowing its white membrane to remain exposed throughout the life of the roof. There are many advantages and reasons why TPO roofing can be the best option for your business’s roofing needs.


While rubber roofing can be more expensive than shingle roofing, it is known to last twice as long and make it much more cost-effective. The material used in TPO roofing is very flexible, allowing it to conform to any surface. The lightweight and flexible properties of the rubber membrane make it much easier to install – less work means direct savings to you! 

TPO roofing material can also withstand punctures, tears and any impact damage. Weather conditions can certainly cause costly repairs to your roof and making sure the material you choose can withstand those conditions can avoid any unnecessary costs in the future.

The rubber sheets that are attached to the roof are generally a bright white color which allows the roofs surface to reflect the sun’s UV rays, and to withstand high heat temperatures and increase the longevity of the material.

Roof maintenance can be a burdensome and sometimes dangerous task; however, the material used with TPO roofing is resistant to bacterial growth and dirt build-up. This is an advantage for longevity of the roof and allows for less costly maintenance repairs. Also, because the material is installed in large sheets of durable and flexible rubber, it is completely water-proof, decreasing the chances of any internal water leaks.


Not only does the bright white surface maintain the integrity of the material when faced with the sun’s UV rays, it also saves you money. The white surface reflects the sun’s heat, allowing the temperature inside the building to become cooler, reducing the amount of energy needed to cool off the building. Using less air-conditioning means instant savings in the warmer months! 

TPO roofing material is also environmentally-safe because the material used can be recycled and because there is the added advantage of less energy being used, there are fewer pollutants that are introduced into the atmosphere.
