What Is TPO Roofing?
TPO which is short for Thermoplastic Polyolefin, it is the mixture of polypropylene and ethylene-propylene (rubber), these elements are combined using state-of-the-art polymer manufacturing technology. This creates the perfect residential TPO Roofing System that is very sturdy, affordable and energy efficient. It is also very easy to install and is environmentally friendly. Systems can be installed fully adhered to or mechanically fastened. TPO is the number one solution for new construction, re-roofing projects and overlays.
TPO Roofing Energy Savings
A roof that is black can reach very high temperatures in the summertime, sometimes in excess of 170°F. However, the highly reflective white surface of EverGuard TPO can be as low as 110°F in the same weather. This is due to the high reflective and emittance qualities of the white membrane; much less solar radiation is penetrated through the roof and into your home. In today’s economy energy prices have sky-rocketed. The white EverGuard thermoplastic roofing system is definitely the way to go when it comes to quality and affordability for a TPO roofing system.
The amount of money that can be saved using a white roof is impressive. The U.S. Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory provides a convenient means for estimating the cost savings of a white roof. Depending on geographical locations an energy-saving EverGuard® TPO roof could provide up to 50% in savings compared to the original cost of the white roof installation.
