The best application for a flat roof is called TPO which is short for TPO (Thermoplastic Polyolefin) Roofing Systems.
Its highly popular in commercial applications, but its gaining use in residential applications as well.
It is highly heat-reflective and energy efficient roofing system, TPO single-ply roofing membranes continue to provide exceptional resistance to ultraviolet, ozone and chemical exposure.
TPO roofing systems combine both polypropylene (plastic) and ethylene-propylene (rubber) using state-of-the-art polymer manufacturing technology. The result is an ideal flat roofing system that is reliable, cost effective, energy efficient and easy to install.
Your Best Option For Re-Cover Applications
When you’re looking to avoid the expense of removing an existing roofing system before installing a new one, TPO is the perfect choice. It’s also ideal for applications over abrasive surfaces such as concrete or granule-surfaced membranes, as no protective sheet is required. It also provides great installation flexibility, as it can be mechanically attached, mopped in hot asphalt, or fully adhered using either conventional or low rise foam adhesives. TPO even has system configurations for enhanced hail resistance.
