What is TPO Roofing and What Are the Benefits?
Christian Roofing offers TPO roofing services for clients across San Diego County. TPO, or thermoplastic polyolefin, is one of the fastest-growing roofing options in the industry. It is a single-ply roofing membrane system that is made of durable, synthetic materials. The material is manufactured in sheets that can be rolled up, shipped, and installed on site. The sheets are 15-20 feet wide, and can be attached on seams that run throughout the roof. TPO roofing is a highly-reflective material; it typically comes in white. TPO roofing reflects UV rays, making it a cost effective way to reduce heat within the structure.
What is TPO Roofing?
TPO roofing is a single-sheeted membrane material that can be used in place of asphalt, tile, shingles, and other roofing methods. It can be attached using mechanical fasteners, bonding, chemical adherents, and other solutions. TPO membranes come in a variety of colors including white, grey and tan. White is a popular option for its ability to deflect heat and light. TPO roofing may be a good option for both residential and commercial structures, depending upon the shape of the roof and the surrounding weather.

What is the TPO Roofing Repair Process?
