TPO roofing, which has been gaining popularity since the 1990s, is a single-ply membrane composed primarily of ethylene propylene rubber or polypropylene plastic with reinforcing scrims added to increase strength and stability over time, providing your South Jersey home or commercial building with superb protection against the elements.
TPO roofing is lightweight but also very durable, which makes it ideal for South Jersey homes as well as commercial buildings such as warehouses or factories. The heavy weight of traditional roofing materials like asphalt shingles may require additional support structures like beams or trusses, but this is not an issue with TPO roofing.
A major benefit of TPO roofing for your South Jersey home or commercial building is energy efficiency. TPO roofing is usually white, grey or tan, so it reflects the sun's UV rays away from the building, helping to keep interior temperatures more consistent throughout the summer months, thereby reducing your air conditioning costs. The light color is also attractive and adds a cleaner look to the building.
TPO roofing is flexible, so it's able to expand and contract, which is important as a building settles and temperatures change; EPDM roofing doesn't offer this type of flexibility. And TPO roofing seam strength is almost four times that of EPDM, because TPO roofing doesn't have big seams like EPDM roofing does. Plus, TPO roofing is more puncture resistant than EPDM roofing, as well as more resistant to dirt and mold. However, EPDM roofing actually has a longer lifespan since TPO can become brittle and crack over time.
