Cox Roofing Systems, a commercial roof repair services provider in Brampton, Ontario, Canada, has announced that they have recently published a blog post that provides answers to frequently asked questions regarding TPO roofing. The company has noted that more and more commercial owners are becoming interested in thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO) roofing as this type of roofing appears poised to achieve top status in the single-ply membrane roofing category. TPO roofing is fast becoming the top favorite for flat commercial roofing.
Wayne Cox, owner and CEO of Cox Roofing Systems, says, “It was in the ‘90s when builders and manufacturers started to realize TPO’s potential of becoming an excellent roofing membrane. The material’s flexibility makes it easy to work with and suitable for almost any type of commercial low and flat roofing structure. Moreover, it could be welded at the seams for an unbroken connection between panels.”
He continues, “But if TPO has been around for decades, why is it only getting renown recently? The thing is, the TPO membranes we know today is a product of years of study and development of the original formula. In fact, there are still ongoing researches on how to further improve it. We have therefore released a blog post that offers basic information regarding TPO roofing for commercial owners who are curious about this type of roofing.”
One of the topics discussed in the Cox Roofing Systems blog post focuses on the available TPO roofing color choices. It should be noted that TPO membranes are commonly available in white, black, and grey colors. However, some manufacturers may also offer other more exciting colors. Meanwhile, it is important to note that white TPO roofing is usually preferred in areas with warm and sunny climates because white color has a high efficiency in reflecting and emitting heat. In contrast, those who are in cooler places often prefer black TPO membranes because they are the most efficient when it comes to insulating the building against cold weather.
For those who are interested in the cost of TPO roofing, the easiest way to obtain an estimate is to call a trustworthy local roofer. It should be noted that there are a number of factors that will affect the price and these are the material, labor, TPO membrane thickness, TPO adherence alternatives, and the season.
Meanwhile, there are certain disadvantages that people should be aware of when it comes to TPO roofing. These are inconsistency in quality and unproven claims. The quality of available TPO membranes in the market vary widely because TPO manufacturers tend to produce wildly different products, which means that while excellent quality may be obtained from one brand, another brand might offer very disappointing products. Meanwhile, because TPO roofing systems are relatively new, claims about how long TPO roofs will last are still unsubstantiated. In general, TPO manufacturers estimate the life span of TPO roofs to be between 15 to 20 years. However, since TPO roofs are relatively new, such claims have not yet been proven to be true because TPO roofs have not yet reached 15 to 20 years.
Meanwhile, Cox Roofing Systems also provides commercial roofing restoration and maintenance services in Brampton and neighbouring areas. In relation to this, they offer roof thermal imagery, energy audits, total roofing services, roof consulting services, roof inspection services, free estimates, sales and installation, and structural engineering.
Roof restoration is the process by which a building’s current roofing system is simply upgraded rather than replacing it. This is actually a much less expensive and better alternative to roof replacement. It should be noted that while roofing systems usually last for 15 to 20 years, this can be shortened by a number of factors such as roof precipitation or heavy climate, degradation by UV rays, roof color, poorly ventilated areas, and loss of reflective paint and coverings. A roof restoration service may extend the life span of a roof by up to 25 more years.
