TPO ROOF SYSTEMS FOR COMMERCIAL BUILDINGS

J Carnes & Son Roofing: Your Trusted TPO Roof Experts

At J Carnes & Son Roofing, we understand the importance of a reliable roof for your commercial property. That’s why we offer high-quality TPO (Thermoplastic Polyolefin) roof systems, a popular choice for flat or low-slope roofs.

WHAT IS A TPO ROOF SYSTEM?

A TPO roof system, also known as a Thermoplastic Polyolefin roof system, refers to the entire roofing assembly that uses a TPO membrane as the waterproofing layer. It’s a single-ply system, meaning there’s just one main layer for water protection.

Here’s a breakdown of the components in a TPO roof system:
  • TPO Membrane: This is the star of the show, a sheet made from thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO) material. It’s typically white and heat-welded at seams to create a watertight barrier.
  • Underlayment: This layer goes directly below the TPO membrane and provides additional waterproofing, drainage, and separation between the membrane and the insulation. It can be made from various materials like vapor barriers, tapered insulation boards, or specialized fabric.
  • Insulation: This layer sits below the underlayment and helps regulate building temperature by minimizing heat transfer. Common insulation choices for flat roofs include rigid board insulation or loose-laid insulation.
  • Roof Deck: This is the structural base that supports the entire roofing system. It can be made from concrete, metal, or composite materials depending on the building’s design.
  • Fasteners and Adhesives: These secure the TPO membrane and other components to the roof deck. Depending on the installation method, fasteners like mechanical screws or adhesives might be used.

Outstanding communication! Emails from multiple members of this team regularly throughout the process. Text messages notifying me of important emails. Accurate quotes that did not change. Got us on the schedule fast. They Showed up on time and were done before 4pm. Great clean up! It was like they were never here…other than the new roof!
