is a single-ply reflective roofing membrane made from polyprophylene and ethylene-propylene rubber polymerized together. It is typically installed in a fully adhered or mechanically attached system, allowing the white membrane to remain exposed throughout the life of the roof. Top rated cool roof rating.
TPO is a great product to apply in various ways. To Re-Roof older outdated roofing systems is always a great idea. One added benefit of installing TPO is a new layer of insulation is added almost immeiately reducing energy usage. TPO retrofit is the application of installing TPO over metal, this is a great application for farm and ranch, industrial warehouses, strip malls and commercial office buildings.
The most common types of metal roofing systems are R-Panel,
Corrugated Metal and Architechual Standing Seam.
Multiple types of metal roofing systems are available outside of the the three listed above. Our crews are among the best in Texas with precision installation of metal roofing systems.
Sometimes metal roofs need to be replaced due to weather and the age of the panels and sometimes a combination of both. Typically life expectancy of a metal roofing panel is 30 years.
3-Tab Shingle - is the most basic and least expensive, entry level roof shingles rated for up to 60mph - 70mph wind uplift. Most 3-tab shingles come with a limited warranty provided by the product manufacturer; 10 to 25 years limited warranty is the norm for 3-tab shingles.
Architectural Shingle- style also known as dimensional (laminated or composition) shingles will provide a beautiful 3-dimensional look to your roof, imitating the look of natural wood or slate shingles.
Most architectural shingles are rated for up to 110mph - 130mph wind uplift and will last longer than 3-tab shingle. Manufacturer ratings ranging from 20 to 50 years of limited warranty are the norm.
Premium Style Shingles - are the premium type known for their unique appearance and high cost. Most premium shingles are rated for a wind uplift of up to 110mph and come with a limited lifetime warranty.
The most common thermoplastic roof membranes are PVC and TPO. The following provides general descriptions of these two systems. Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) PVCsheets are produced by calendaring, spread coating or extruding, and typically are reinforced with polyester or glass-fiber mats or scrim.
It has a similar reflectivity to TPO and was the original weldable sheet.
Modified Bitumen is a type of asphalt product that can be applied in a number of ways to the roof in both hot and cold temperatures. Modified bitumen roofs have a lot of advantages over other types of membrane roofing, and are often seen as the modern alternative to the built up roof.
A standard SBS modified bitumen roof system is a two-ply system applied in rolls that overlap the edge of the previous roll.
EPDM is an extremely durable synthetic rubber roofing membrane (ethylene propylene diene terpolymer) widely used in low-slope buildings most commonly seen in a commercial building setting. Its two primary ingredients, ethylene and propylene, are derived from oil and natural gas.
This system is equivelant to TPO and PVC without the solar barrier reflectivity benefits.
Ultra White Elastomeric Roof Coating - is a tough, highly flexible, rubberized roof coating. This is a high-performance, elastomeric roof coating that resists cracking and peeling. The coating also provides a highly protective barrier which reflects the sun's heat and destructive UV rays.
This is a great application over metal roofing systems warehousing, farm and ranch, commercial, industrial. It is highly beneficial product in the aggricultural industry livestock, equine, poultry and pig farms. Reduction in heat makes for lower energy bills and happier animals.
