Commercial roofing is necessary for every business. It protects your business from the elements and aids in insulation of your business. This video will show the basics of TPO roofing installation on a flat roof.
TPO is a single-ply membrane that is becoming increasingly popular as a roofing material. It offers excellent protection and insulation benefits. It’s flexible and can fit onto any roof layout. It’s also relatively inexpensive compared to other roofing materials.
Organization and cleanliness is of paramount concern for commercial roofing installers. All of the separate parts are split up and organized in safe locations to prevent tripping and falls.
Some TPO roofing uses adhesives to connect with the roof. The problem is that overtime the adhesive can fail due to exposure and the roofing material will peel upwards. These roofers use mechanical fasteners (a plate and four-inch screw) to tightly fasten the TPO to the roof and prevent this from happening.
Another benefit of TPO is the highly reflective nature. It bounces UV rays off of your roof, increasing the energy efficiency of your business and saving you money. Anywhere there is a pipe, there needs to be custom TPO pipe boots to accommodate. For more information, check out the video above.
