As a business, you may or may not know what type of roofing material is protecting you, your workforce, or your assets from Colorado’s wonderful weather. For most flat commercial roofs, they utilize what’s called Thermoplastic Polyolefin (TPO), a primarily chemical composition membrane that seals the roof and protects what’s inside from the hail, wind, rain, critters, and more.
You may need repairs on your roof because you’ve noticed a leak.
You may need a roof inspection because you haven’t gotten on in a while.
Or, you may need a complete roof replacement due to a recent storm.
In any of these situations, know that you’re not alone. The overwhelm, stress, and anxiety that may overcome you due to trying to find a roofing contractor you can trust can be relieved. All you have to do is give NexGen Roofing a call for all your commercial TPO roofing services. Our expert team can help get you an inspection scheduled, a free estimate, and your project completed.
You may want to know how much TPO roofing costs. Well, it depends on the tear off of your current roof. The various levels of insulation to prevent penetration can weigh heavily on how much roof repairs and replacements will cost. The TPO material alone can cost between $6-$12 per square foot in material alone (and this price range can change based on the market). Add in the labor to remove your existing roof, and you’ve got your price. Or, you could contact NexGen Roofing today and get a free estimate without all the hassle of doing math or calling other companies for quotes.
Your standard TPO or PVC type roof is mechanically attached. An EPDM roof is typically adhered to seal your roof. In either situation, the roofs use different processes to achieve the same result: protect you, your building, your workforce, and your assets from the weather. Keep in mind, too, that the glue used to adhere EPDM roofs are expensive compared to TPO roofing materials.
Over the years TPO has seen some great advancements, which contribute to its increased lifespan. Prior to these advancements, a TPO roof would last 3-5 years. Now, TPO roofs, on average, last between 10-20 years. What this means is that your investment will last longer in your roof when you choose TPO than it would have nearly a decade ago.
The standard colors for TPO roofing are available: white, gray, and tan. You can also paint TPO roof material to be any color you would like. However, to improve energy efficiency, sticking with lighter colors that help reflect the sun are encouraged.
