If you own a commercial building or are planning to build one in the near future, there is a good chance the roofing system will be made of Thermoplastic Polyolefin, also known as TPO for short. TPO has been a go-to roofing material for builders of commercial structures with flat roofs, and if you own a commercial building it’s important to partner with a qualified contractor to install a TPO roof on an existing building or a new one.
Our company has been handling commercial roofing installation, maintenance and repair for facilities in Houston and the surrounding areas for many years. With our decades of experience and customer-focused service, we are the ideal partner for your next commercial roofing job.
While we can install many types of roofing systems depending on the size and pitch of your roof, your personal preferences and your budget, we will focus on TPO roofs today and the next few sections will detail our TPO roofing installation process. If you are considering a TPO roof replacement or installation, we hope this article helps you make an informed decision and our team would love to partner with you.
Assess Your Roof
As is the case with many projects, a successful TPO roofing installation job begins with the right planning. Since we have years of experience, we can accurately assess your roof to make an accurate estimate, help you understand what to expect as far as a timeline goes and assess our needs for ordering materials. We understand each job is unique, so we always take time to ensure our clients have clear expectations and we’re planning for a successful install.
Installing TPO roofing is a multi-step process and in order for the roof to be watertight it must be done correctly. After the existing roofing material is removed or the new roof is prepped for install, our team members have the know-how to perform a perfect install. Depending on the needs of your roof, the membrane is first secured to the roof using fasteners and/or adhesive and then the seams of the membrane are “welded” together via a process of heating and securing them to form a monolithic, watertight roof.
During the membrane installation process, we also ensure the irregularities in the roof are flashed correctly to ensure no leaks happen at common pain points such as AC unit locations, vent pipes, changes in elevation, etc. Without proper flashing, the roof will be subject to leaks.
Quality Check & Maintenance Plan
We guarantee every roof we install, and we take pride in ensuring there are no defects after the roof is put on. After a rigorous quality check, we work with the building owner to ensure their expectations are met and also create a plan to ensure the roof is regularly maintained, which will extend its lifespan and make sure it performs as intended.
