What is TPO?

TPO stands for Thermoplastic Polyolefin.

Thermoplastic Polyolefin is a single-ply roofing membrane that consists of a single layer of synthetics and reinforcing scrim used to cover flat roofs. They are made in white to increase the reflectivity of the system to keep the roof cool.

TPO is a great material to use on flat roofs in Long Island as well as in warmer climates throughout the country. It is applied with a heat gun and is known for having a superior seam seal than older roof systems.

The TPO membrane can be attached mechanically, self-adhered, ballasted, plate bonded, or with specialized glue. Most manufacturers offer TPO with Fleeceback which allows the membrane to adhere to low-rise urethane foam board.

TPO is a roll system of roofing which means it comes in rolls that measure approximately 8 feet wide by 50 or 100 feet long. This makes for fewer seams an openings on your flat roof project.

The thickness of a TPO membrane most widely used is 60-mils, however, 45-mils is still frequently used. A thicker membrane has a higher durability rating but a thinner membrane may be easier to install.

What does TPO Roofing Cost in Long Island NY? 

The cost of materials fluctuates whereas labor is more consistent.  As of 2022 TPO roofing with insulation board is on average 12-18 dollars per square foot. 

This would include the removal of old roofing but TPO can also be put over old roofing if the local building code allows it. 

Benefits of TPO Roofing

Variable Choice of insulation

TPO single-ply roofing does not include the insulation factor in the material so as a building owner, you have more options to choose from to insulate your facility’s roof.

Class A Fire-Related

TPO membranes can achieve Underwriters Laboratories (UL) Class A fire resistance listings by adding fire retardant chemicals during manufacturing. This raises the product's safety rating.

Reflective or Retentive TPO

TPO is generally white and highly reflective. As mentioned previously this will reflect UV rays and increase the efficiency of cooling systems.
