Leaky roofs can be costly for building owners, but they are also dangerous because they can lead to wet floors, a known safety hazard. When left unchecked, leaks can lead to conditions that promote mold growth, making it hazardous for humans to breathe. This type of hazard can result in lost production time and extra expenses if medical care becomes necessary for you or the people that use your building. If your commercial building is suffering from too many leaks and drips, then it might be time to look into the benefits of TPO Roofing.
With a new TPO Roofing System from Silver Creek Commercial Roofing, you can rest assured that a leaky roof will no longer be a problem. This single-ply roof membrane system is an excellent alternative to a total roof replacement, and it may be the solution for your aging, leaky roof.
TPO Roofing: What is it?
Thermoplastic Polyolefin (TPO) is a single-ply roofing membrane. Thermoplastic roofs are usually white, which gives them reflective properties. Rubbers and other elements called fillers are used to make this type of roofing, so it is flexible and durable. TPO is also fire-resistant, making it a more attractive roofing material for commercial buildings.
What Are The Benefits Of TPO Roofing?
There are several benefits to TPO roofing besides its durability and fire resistance. A new TPO roof from Silver Creek Commercial Roofing can bring these benefits to your building as well:
- Cost-Effective Alternative to Total Roof Replacement – As a commercial property owner, the last thing you should have to worry about is a leaking roof. Not only can it damage the property, but it can also cause damage to your tenant’s products if in a retail environment. In addition, a complete replacement of an existing roof could displace your tenants for many months and cost thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of dollars in construction costs and lost rent payments.
- Can be Applied Over Existing Roofs – Installation over an existing roofing system is one benefit of a TPO Roofing System. Silver Creek Commercial Roofing professionals will prepare the existing roof’s surface by cleaning and removing any debris, then rolling out the TPO Roofing membrane. The material is attached to the existing surface with a bonding adhesive, mechanically, or with a ballast, which is large stone or paver materials that holds it in place.This type of installation means there are fewer interruptions to your building’s day-to-day operations. There will be no interruptions at all in most cases, and your tenants can operate business as usual while we install the roofing system.
- Lower Energy Bills – No one likes paying too much for electricity. Lower energy bills are another key benefit of installing a new TPO Roof. As mentioned previously, thermoplastic polyolefin membranes are usually light in color and help reflect the sun’s rays. By reflecting the light from the sun in the summer months, tenants can expect to pay much lower energy costs to cool the building’s interior.
