TPO is a synthetic rubber compound that possesses a highly reflective quality not often found in commercial roofing systems. It has the ability to reflect up to 87% of UV rays, allowing it to maintain a temperature close to the ambient air, meaning heat is not transmitted into the interior of the building. This results in lower energy costs and a lighter load on the property’s air conditioning unit. Its reinforced polyester exterior also provides improved puncture and tear resistance superior to other commercial roofing materials.
The Benefits of TPO Roof Systems:
- Recyclable and environmentally friendly.
- Energy efficient – reduce your heating and cooling costs.
- Minimal and easy maintenance
- Resistant to chemicals.
- UV heat resistant.
There are three methods for installing PVC roofing systems.
- Ballasting – The roofing is loosely placed and adhered only at the edges. It is then held into place using ballast.
- Mechanically Attached – This traditional method involves using screw and nails to adhere the material to the decking.
- Fully Adhered – Using a strong adhesive, the roofing material is fully adhered to the decking.
PVC roofing is a highly pliable and durable material that can be used in a wide range of commercial roofing applications. PVC is particularly known for its ability to hold up against jet fuels and fatty oil exhaust, making it ideal for the food manufacturing, restaurant, and aviation industries. Read More…
