Everything You Need to Know About TPO Roofing 

TPO roofing systems offer several advantages for commercial building owners.

But before we get into that, let’s talk about what TPO commercial roofing is and why you may want to consider it for your next roofing project.

What is TPO Roofing?

TPO roofing systems have been installed in the United States since the early 1990s and have become a popular choice among commercial roofing contractors. TPO stands for thermoplastic polyolefin, which is not a single material, but rather an umbrella term for a wide range of different products. Basically, it’s a single-ply membrane made from polypropylene and ethylene-propylene rubber polymerized together. The materials are combined in different amounts to create different grades of TPO membrane. The resulting material can be heat-welded at the seams to form a waterproof, seamless roof surface.

TPO roofing is available in white, gray, and black colors, with white being the most common. These roofing systems are designed to provide superior protection against ultraviolet radiation, ozone, and chemical exposure. They’re also resistant to grease, mildew, and fire. This makes them an excellent choice for many types of commercial buildings (more on this in a minute). 


TPO Roof System Benefits

When you choose TPO roofing for your commercial building, you can expect to enjoy these benefits:


Energy Efficiency 

Energy is something that many businesses try to save on. Thankfully, TPO commercial roofing systems help businesses do just that! TPO membrane reflects ultraviolet rays which help keep your building cool in warm weather. This energy-efficient feature means you can save money on your energy bills during the warm summer months.


Seamless Roof Installation

TPO roofing systems offer seamless installation which makes them highly water-resistant. No matter what size your building is, the TPO membrane will be able to cover it without any seams or joints. This minimizes the possibility of water leaking through cracks or crevices in your roof. 


TPO commercial roofing contains no harmful chemicals as EPDM roofs do, and it can be recycled at the end of its lifespan, making it an eco-friendly choice all around. When deciding TPO vs EPDM, TPO is the better option.

High Durability

TPO commercial roofing is one of the most durable roofing materials on the market today. It’s highly resistant to punctures and tears and can withstand a lot of abuse. This makes it an excellent choice for commercial buildings that have heavy foot traffic on their roofs or where there is equipment that needs to be accessed regularly.

Wide Temperature Tolerance

TPO roofing can withstand extreme temperatures, making it ideal for use in different climates around the country. Some products are rated to perform well in temperatures as low as -50° F and as high as 250° F. It won’t crack or peel due to exposure to UV rays or extreme weather conditions, such as hail and high winds.

How to Select the Right TPO Roofing Installation Contractor 

It’s time to get your new TPO roof. You have the information. You know the TPO Roofing Cost and you have the budget. The only thing left to do is select a commercial roofing contractor and install your new TPO system.

But you can’t just hire any contractor. You need one who specializes in TPO systems so they can tell you all the TPO roofing installation details. Hiring the wrong contractor can result in mistakes and costly repairs. A subpar installation also voids the warranty on your TPO system!


That’s why you need to be careful when selecting a commercial roofing company to install your new TPO roofing system.

To make things easier, here are some key qualities that you will want to look for: 

  • The proper licensing, bonding, and insurance
  • Field crews that are fully trained in installing the specific type of metal roof – whether standing seam, architectural shingle roofs, or other types of commercial roofs
  • A proven record of successful commercial metal roof installation projects.
  • A safety program is in place to protect its employees and property owners from injury or accidents on the job site.
  • A warranty on labor and materials that meets your needs.
  • A complete portfolio of professional references 
  • An office or place where you can meet them
  • Liability insurance and worker’s compensation insurance (you could be liable for accidents to workers on your property)
