Like residential roofs, commercial roofing systems have a wide range of options when it comes to materials. According to renovation experts, two of the most popular commercial roofing materials on the market are TPO and EPDM membranes due to their numerous advantages, such as:
Building owners are always on the lookout for ways to save on their monthly energy bills. Thankfully, replacing your commercial building’s roofing membrane to TPO or EPDM can help you achieve just that as both are incredibly energy efficient. This is because they can come in lighter colors, such as white or tan, which increases its reflectivity and prevents unwanted heat from entering your building. This allows you to save a significant amount on your monthly cooling costs.
Another shared advantages of both TPO and EPDM membranes are their relatively low cost for both the material and installation. With that in mind, if you want a cost effective roofing membrane without sacrificing quality, have your roof replacement professional install either TPO or EPDM membranes on your commercial building.
On the other hand, if you’re looking for a membrane that has a lengthy lifespan, either TPO or EPDM membranes are the way to go. This is because with the proper maintenance procedures, TPO and EPDM roofing can last for 20 to 50 years.
Believe it or not, both TPO and EPDM membranes are fairly durable commercial roofing materials. TPO is incredibly resistant in resisting algae, bacteria, dirt, and even debris while their high flexibility allows it to resist punctures, tears, and impact damage. Likewise, EPDM boasts the same flexibility, which in turn allows it to better resist the expansion and contraction that can cause damage to the roof.
