TPO (Thermoplastic Polyolefin) roofing

TPO roofing

TPO is a type of single-ply roofing membrane that is commonly used on commercial and industrial buildings, as well as in residential applications. TPO roofing is known for its durability, flexibility, and energy efficiency. It’s typically installed in large rolls that are heat-welded together to create a watertight seal over the roof surface. TPO roofing membranes are usually white or light-colored, which helps to reflect sunlight and reduce cooling costs. Overall, TPO roofing has become popular due to its performance, ease of installation, and cost-effectiveness compared to other roofing materials.

Benefits of TPO roofing:


Commercial and Industrial Buildings

TPO roofing is commonly used in commercial and industrial settings due to its durability, ease of installation, and cost-effectiveness. It can withstand harsh weather conditions, high foot traffic, and exposure to chemicals or pollutants often found in these environments.

Large Flat or Low-Slope Roofs

TPO roofing is particularly well-suited for flat or low-slope roofs commonly found in commercial buildings, warehouses, and industrial facilities. Its flexibility allows for easy installation on these types of roofs, and its seam welding provides excellent waterproofing, reducing the risk of leaks.


Renovations and Retrofits

TPO roofing is lightweight compared to other roofing materials, making it suitable for retrofitting existing buildings without adding excessive weight to the structure. Its flexibility allows it to adapt to various roof shapes and configurations, making it an ideal choice for renovation projects.

Green Building Projects

TPO roofing is considered environmentally friendly due to its energy-saving properties. Its reflective surface helps reduce the urban heat island effect and lowers energy consumption for cooling, aligning with green building initiatives and sustainability goals.

Ideal for Auckland climates

TPO roofing is highly reflective, especially when installed in white or light-colored options. This reflectivity helps to reduce heat absorption, making it an excellent choice for buildings in warm climates. By reflecting sunlight, TPO roofing can lower cooling costs and improve energy efficiency.
