TPO Commercial Flat Roofs

Explore TPO Roof Systems at Roofing Center, your reliable St. Louis, St. Charles, and St. Peters roofing expert. TPO, or Thermoplastic Polyolefin, makes waves for its energy efficiency, fungal resistance, UV stability, and impressive long-lasting performance. Let’s uncover the advantages of this roofing solution to see if it fits your facility and budget.

What are Thermoplastic Roof Systems?

Thermoplastic roofs are synthetic materials that soften when heated and solidify when cooled. Why is this flexibility crucial? It enables the membrane to expand and contract alongside the rest of your building during temperature fluctuations. Whether your location experiences drastic temperature shifts between seasons or throughout the day, you want your roof to adapt seamlessly to the building’s materials, including concrete and steel. At Roofing Center, we specialize in installing and servicing two types of thermoplastic roofs: Thermoplastic Polyolefin (TPO) and Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) systems.

Understanding TPO Roofing

Thermoplastic Polyolefin (TPO) roof systems debuted in the early 1990s and quickly gained prominence in the low-slope roofing market. They addressed the limitations posed by plasticizers in Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) systems. TPO membranes are naturally flexible and do not contain plasticizers or chlorine, making them an excellent choice for environmentally conscious businesses and facilities.

Advantages of TPO Roof Membranes With The Roofing Center

01

Strength and durability

TPO membranes are reinforced with polyester scrim and feature hot air-welded seams, making them highly resistant to tears, punctures, and impact damage.

02

Value

When your decking and insulation are sound, opt for a TPO system to cut costs. Watch our video highlighting a TPO retrofit on a metal roof for a cost-effective solution.

03

Energy Savings

With their white surface, TPO roofs reflect sunlight effectively, reducing cooling expenses for your facility and mitigating the urban heat island effect. TPO is ENERGY STAR Rated, earning the "cool roof" designation.

04

Weather Resistance

TPO roofs exhibit outstanding thermal performance and unmatched UV resistance in hot and cold conditions.

05

Bio resistance

They naturally resist fungi, bacteria, and debris buildup, eliminating the need for biocides.

06

Chemical Resistance

High-quality TPO installations withstand bacteria and most roof pollutants.

07

Cost of Ownership

Thanks to their durability and bio resistance, TPO roofs require less ongoing maintenance and repair costs, ensuring cost-effectiveness over time.

08

Fire Resistance

Our TPO membranes are Class A rated, making them an excellent choice for environments where fire safety is paramount.

TPO Roof Installation Process

TPO roofing systems are lightweight and adaptable, suitable for various applications and building types. We consider your project’s specific roofing needs, climate, and timeline to determine the best TPO installation method. Here are the methods we offer:

Mechanically attached

Our skilled crews secure the TPO membrane to the deck using fasteners and plates. Enhanced fastening patterns are employed around the perimeter and corners to withstand wind uplift. Seams are welded to ensure a watertight installation. Check out our video to witness this process in action. Benefits include cost-effectiveness and fewer temperature restrictions during installation.

Induction weld or point-affixed

The TPO membrane attaches to a mechanically anchored plate fastened to the deck. Electromagnetic induction heats the plate and membrane, fusing them. Welded seams provide watertight insulation with superior wind uplift performance.

Adhered

Our expert crews directly bond the membrane to insulation or other substrates tailored to your roof specifications using adhesive or low-rise foam. This method evenly distributes uplift pressure throughout the membrane, enhancing performance and aesthetics. Note that certain bonding adhesives may have temperature limitations during installation.
