Thermoplastic Polyolefin (“TPO”) Roofing Systems from Exterior Design & Development are recyclable, and environmentally friendly with heat-weldable seams.
TPO systems have no external plasticizers, and are resistant to things like heat, UV degradation, and many abrasive chemicals. For over 30 years, many commercial property owners, developers, and building managers have opted to use a TPO system as they are cost-effective and Energy-Star rated. TPO membranes are made with a co-polymerized rubber which allows them greater flexibility in colder temperatures. The underlying membrane is best recognized for having similar benefits of PVC and EPDM systems at a lower cost. TPO membranes are usually a highly reflective white color, making them a great option for those looking to reduce energy costs.
