C.L. Burks Construction offers trusted roofing and construction services for commercial and industrial customers. We provide cutting-edge roofing solutions including Single Ply Thermoplastic Polyolefin and Thermal Polymer Olefin. This is a single ply membrane based roofing system that is extremely strong. Its strength comes from the combination of having a weldable seam as well as the strength of the EPDM rubber. Single-Ply TPO roofing systems can be installed very simply, and they are resistant to a wide variety of different extreme weather conditions. Many of our TPO membrane systems carry an Energy Star rating which assists in reducing the amount of electricity that it takes to cool a large building. It does this by reflecting the heat away from the roof’s surface.
The Advantages of Single-Ply TPO Roofing
There are many different advantages to using single ply TPO roofing. These roofing systems come with built-in UV protection, and they are very weather resistant. The single ply TPO systems were originally made for the auto industry due to its material being resistant to contraction and expansion in even the most severe types of weather. Since then, it has been successfully adapted for the roofing industry and has exhibited similarly exceptional results.
Single-Ply TPO Roofing is easily installed in three distinct methods which include mechanically attached, fully adhered, or ballasted. With a ballasted installation, the membrane can become weighted down, and only the edges are sealed. When it is mechanically attached, screws are used in order to secure the membrane to the actual roof. In a fully adhered installation, an adhesive secures the membrane to the substrate below.
