Cox Roofing Systems is always happy to help their commercial customers make sound decisions regarding the roofing work that they need to have done. Evidence of that comes in the form of a recent blog that was posted on their website. This blog went into great detail about the pros and cons of TPO roof coverings. It would be highly beneficial for any company that needs a new flat roof system to become familiar with the information in this recently-published blog article.
The blog post started by saying that most commercial property owners have at least heard of TPO roofing. It says that’s because it’s one of the most popular choices for new and replacement low and no-slope roof systems. TPO is the abbreviated version of this material's real name which is ‘Thermoplastic Polyolefin’. Many people also refer to it as a rubber roof because it consists primarily of a synthetic rubber compound.
The article went on to say that it goes down over any flat or low slope roof in the form of a single-ply synthetic membrane. TPO roof systems are also sometimes referred to as ‘white roofs’ because the exterior side of the membrane has a white reflective coating on it. The post mentioned that there are other color choices too such as black and beige which work well for commercial flat roofs in the cooler Greater Toronto area.
In the article, it went on to state that some of the main reasons that a company would choose a TPO roof are its energy-saving features and the fact that it can be affordably installed.
It was also noted in the article that TPO roofing systems can be made to blend in with the color of their surroundings so they look good. It’s also a very durable and long-lasting roof system and this longevity makes it a very cost-effective flat roof covering. Flat roofs that are covered in TPO material also handle expansion and contraction due to changing temperatures very well.
Some of the drawbacks that were mentioned in the TPO blog post included this roof system’s higher initial cost and the fact that the seam adhesives used to put sections together will degrade faster than the roof material itself; this necessitates periodic inspections and repairs of the seams to prevent leaking. This recent Cox Roofing Systems blog post is just one of many helpful blogs that can be seen on the company’s website.
Company owner, Wayne Cox, says, “We find that most companies that need to have a new roof covering put over their building realize that they have some choices to make. That’s why many will try and familiarize themselves with the different types of roof coatings that are out there in the marketplace. We like to help them as much as we can with that process. Part of that is continuously posting blogs like this one on TPO roofing. These help our commercial customers make informed decisions on the type of new flat roof covering that suits their needs and their budget the best. Our sales staff reports that many of our commercial customers come in prepared to ask many important questions after reading through our blog articles.”
The company is also very well-reviewed by those that have used their commercial roofing services. Here is an example of that in a 5-star review taken from Cox Roofing Systems Google Maps Listing. Michelle McDowell wrote, “My commercial building needed a new roof bad! It was leaking in a bunch of spots. I spoke with Wayne Cox directly and he is super friendly and personable. He sent someone out right away to get me a quote. When they started the roof, the onsite supervisor, Devon, plus all the other workers, were so friendly and respectful. We did run into some problems during the roof replacement process but the way they handled the issues and fixed them right away is superior customer service. They are honest and dependable and I would recommend them to anyone!”
