TPO ROOF MAINTENANCE
A TPO roof is a Thermoplastic Polyolefin membrane that is originally manufactured in large sized rolls.
These rolls are delivered and loaded to the roofing deck structure to later be properly installed according to a variety of different configurations. The most important reason TPO roofs have been the largest growing sector in roofing since its inception, is the characteristic the material has, to weld to itself. Self-welding allows for the installer to merge the seams, creating a monolithic structure on the entire roof.
As the years pass by after the original installation, the TPO membrane becomes subject to a plethora of ele ments: UV rays, precipitation, high wind pressures, structural movement, falling debris, and in many instances, foot traffic, and cigarette buds. Being that most of these factors are specific and unpredictable, all TPO roofs should have a recurrent maintenance program in place to ensure the intended conditions exist to maximize its lifetime.
