To improve the life of flat roofs, many commercial property owners choose to install Thermoplastic PolyOlefin (TPO) in their roof to reinforce strength, longevity, water and fire resistance, as well as heat insulation. TPOs are made of a series of membranes made from highly durable materials, such as rubber and PVC, and are installed with roof fasteners or using heat welding.
However, one issue that may significantly affect TPO performance is the quality of installation. When installed improperly, the membranes of TPO may detach from the roof and shrink, causing it to tent or bulge. A tenting TPO membrane makes your roof more prone to damages, such as water leakage and early roof wear-outs.
To get the most value out of your TPO, you should hire a team of well-experienced and professional roofing experts for your TPO installation needs. We at Black Slate Roofing, LLC are willing to be of help. Call our Austin office at (512) 969-6790 and tell us exactly what you need.
