TPO roofs are a great option for business owners who need a new roofing membrane but are tight on their budget. TPO roofing membranes are a cost-effective choice that requires minimal additional maintenance.
TPO roofing is durable and resistant against bacteria, debris, algae, and dirt. It’s also a great roofing system for resisting ultraviolet and chemical exposure during high-heat months. Since TPO is a flexible roofing membrane, it can withstand punctures, tears, and impact damage, making it a high-quality roofing system for strong storm months as well.
Since TPO roofing systems are lightweight and flexible, they’re much easier to install than other roofing systems. There are fewer seams to weld, so the installation process is less work for roofing experts. This leads to more direct savings for your roofing installation process.
One of the most significant advantages of TPO roofing membranes is their energy efficiency. TPO roofing is UV resistant, making it sustainable for the environment and saving your business a ton of money on utility bills.
TPO is composed of a white reflective surface that exceeds the EPA’s energy star requirements. Installing TPO keeps the interior of your building at a comfortable temperature without raising energy costs. Commercial facilities across the country use this energy-saving solution because it offers many more benefits than other roofing systems.

TPO roofing membranes are similar to EPDM roofing materials, but differ in several aspects:
- Used for 20 years
- Reflects sunlight
- Chemically adhered or mechanically fastened
- Seams fused with a hot-air gun
- Lasts 15 to 30 years
- Used for 60 years
- Retains heat from sunlight
- Mechanically fastened
- Seams fused with seam tape
- Lasts 25 to 30 years
Overall, TPO roofing is a good roofing solution. However, it does have its disadvantages compared to other roofing solutions. One of the most significant is that it’s prone to damage if it’s constantly exposed to excessive heat. Intense heat increases the risk of busted seams, which leads to cracking in the material and a leaky roof. The laminated layer on top can also introduce weak spots where the material is more prone to deteriorating.
In addition to TPO roofing membranes, we install various types of flat roofing systems for commercial businesses, including:
Leak Seal Roofing’s fiberglass and emulsion roof system—or, as we like to call it, the LeakSeal System—is a cold, spray-applied roof membrane made up of four main components: asphalt emulsion, fiberglass gun roving, polyester sheeting, and solar shield reflective coating. When applied to a flat or low-slope roof, this roofing system provides unmatched protection, avoiding the need for a roof replacement for 10 to 20 years.
PVC roofing (short for polyvinyl chloride) is a single-ply roofing material that creates a highly durable and flexible roofing membrane. Known for its long service life, PVC roofing is one of the most commonly installed industrial and commercial materials in the roofing industry.
Like PVC roofing, silicone coatings are one of the most common roofing systems for commercial buildings. Silicone roof coatings are engineered as a protective coating to permanently restore and repair existing roofs.
Silicone roofing systems have many advantages, including:
- Significant savings compared to replacement
- Increases the service life of your roof 10-20 years
- Reduces energy costs
- Minimal or no disruptions during installation
- Resistance to ponding water
- Superior UV ray protection
- Flexibility to move with your roof
- More resistant to weathering
- High solid composition
