For flat roofing, typically found on commercial buildings, Good Shepherd Roofing recommends the use of TPO roofing. TPO (https://www.mulehide.com/Roofing-Products/p/TPOMembranes) stands for thermoplastic polyolefin, which is a membrane composed of different rubbers used on flat roofing surfaces. TPO roofing has gained extreme popularity in recent years opposed to the other options on the market (PVC and Rubber). The material is applied in a single layer over the roofing surface, which offers protection and many different advantages and disadvantages to the building owner.
Ease of installation (with experienced contractors)
Less costly than the PVC alternative
Maintenance and Repairs are easier than alternative options
Keeps building cool by reflecting UV rays
Disparity in quality between different manufacturers of TPO Roofing materials
Reactive to heat, can cause cracks in the surface
TPO is relatively new, full lifetime is still to be determined
TPO is at the top of the list for flat commercial roofs. It is easily applicable, not as costly as the PVC option, and maintenance costs are low. The simplicity TPO roofing offers can’t be beat, and that’s why Good Shepherd Roofing supports this option for commercial roofing.
