Expert TPO Roofing Repair and Installation Services
Thermoplastic Polyolefin, or TPO, roofing is a cost-effective and durable choice that is becoming increasingly popular for commercial residences in Southeast Michigan. This single-ply roofing membrane is composed primarily of rubber and comes in large sheets that can be installed on flat surfaces. The experts at First Response Roofing and Construction, LLC are experienced in installing and repairing TPO roofing among our other commercial roofing and construction services.
Installing TPO Roofing
If you are considering making the switch to TPO roofing, it is important that it is installed by professionals. There are multiple installation methods, and our experienced roofing contractors will be able to advise which method is best for your building. TPO can be attached mechanically, with plate bonding, ballasting, or with adherence.
After preparing the initial substrate, a layer of insulation goes below the TPO membrane. Depending on your budget and desired R-value, you can choose between Polyisocyanurate (Polyiso), Expanded Polystyrene (EPS), or Extruded Polystyrene (XPS). The TPO is then installed and sealed over the insulation.
Advantages of TPO Roofing
There are many good reasons why many commercial buildings in Southeast Michigan are deciding to go with TPO roofing installation. Some of them include:
- Economic Benefits – TPO is inexpensive compared to other roofing materials and can be installed quickly, which reduces labor costs. In addition, a TPO roof can also lower your property insurance rates.
- Energy efficiency – The white reflective surface deflects the sun’s rays, saving you money on cooling costs in the summer.
- Durability – In addition to being able to deflect UV rays, TPO is also resistant to tears, punctures, wind, bacteria, algae, mold, and corrosion as well as dirt and debris buildup. The wind resistance makes these roofs especially attractive to Port Huron commercial building owners.
- Environmentally Friendly – The reduced use of your air conditioning helps the environment as well as your bottom line. Not only that, but unlike most other roofing materials, TPO is 100% recyclable
TPO Roof Repair
While a new TPO roof can last 15-20 years, sometimes they do occasionally need repair. The seams may rip, the flashings may fail, or the membrane might become punctured. This can allow water into the insulation layer below, and eventually, start leaking inside the building. Our roofing contractors can examine the seams and level of saturation in the insulation to determine if it can be repaired or should be replaced.
