TPO and PVC Roof Systems
Thermoplastic Polyolefin (TPO) and Poly Vinyl Chloride (PVC) are thermoplastic roof systems that are both white and highly reflective roof membranes. These roofs provide excellent weathering characteristics and are highly resistant to ultraviolet light and most chemicals. The membranes have a reinforced scrim and are puncture and tear resistant. TPO roofs have outstanding seam strength because sheets are welded together using hot air. These types of roof systems are light weight and well suited for roof-over applications.
TPO and PVC roof systems are typically installed in one of two ways:
• Mechanically attached- the roof membrane is affixed to the structural deck with mechanical fasteners.
• Fully adhered- the membrane is bonded directly to the affixed insulation board or other roofing membrane.
We have over 20 years experience working with these roof systems and we are manufacturer certified applicators of these products. This is the preferred roofing system for most of our restaurant clients.
