What is TPO/PVC Thermoplastic Roofing?

Chances are good that you’ve handled PVC piping when repairing your home or business. Popular for its remarkable strength, light weight, and adaptability, thermoplastic materials are used in practically every application imaginable. Roofing is certainly no exception.

Based on various polymers, TPO (thermoplastic polyolefin) and PVC (Polyvinyl chloride) arrive at your commercial property in large sheets, ready to be laid out and fitted on your building. Thanks to the almost fluid nature that polymers achieve when hot, and the armored posture they adopt at the molecular level when cold, thermoplastic roofing materials are suitable for nearly all weather extremes and are puncture/damage resistant.

Advantages of TPO/PVC Thermoplastic Roofing

If you’ve ever tried to tear open a plastic package, you know how difficult shearing or separating plastic can be. TPO and PVC roofing systems make the most of that durability by laying sheets of various thicknesses down over your commercial roof. The color and chemical qualities of these substances also provide excellent reflectivity against the sun’s rays, keeping you and your workforce cooler in hotter months and warmer in colder months.

Among the numerous advantages provided by thermoplastic roofing solutions, you can expect that they will be:

Long Lasting (10-30 years or longer)
Resistant to Thermal Shock
Extra Resistant to Punctures/Damage
Resistant to Cracking
Extremely Low Maintenance
Energy Efficient
Energy Efficient
Fire Resistant

Ideal Applications for TPO/PVC Thermoplastic Roofing

Thermoplastic TPO/PVC systems are recommended for flat and low-sloped roofs. Often used for apartment buildings and other large structures, TPO/PVC is easily installed across a wide surface for an affordable and reflective roofing solution. Suitable for most weather and temperature extremes, thermoplastic roofing really shines in brighter environments where its reflectivity restricts the sun’s ability to heat up your business below.
