TPO: TPO (thermoplastic olefin) roofing is relatively inexpensive and yet provides a long list of rewarding benefits. Consisting of polypropylene and ethylene-propylene rubber polymerized together, the flexible membrane is exceptionally durable. This type of roof resists punctures, tears and impact damage. It is both lightweight and flexible, reducing the seams and time and labor of installation. TPO has a white reflective surface that exceeds the EPA’s energy star requirements. Energy efficient, UV-resistant, and heat-resistant option, it provides a cooler home in the summer and trims the cost of air conditioning. Plus, TPO roofing defends against bacteria, algae, dirt and debris.
Modified Bitumen: Modified bitumen roofing is probably the most popular choice for low-slope building applications. It provides a modern improvement on traditional tar-and-gravel roofs. Made from asphalt and exceptionally tear-resistant, Bitumen patches allow for any necessary repairs to be completed quickly. With proper installation procedures, the combination of fiberglass and/or polyester reinforcement layers offer the most waterproof roofing style available. “Cool roof” features reflect sunlight, release already-absorbed heat and lessen indoor cooling requirements. Modified bitumen roofing is an energy saving choice and saves money on utility bills. Especially flexible, it expands and contracts without losing its shape, making it an ideal choice for areas with weather fluctuations.
