TPO Roofing Systems 101
Short for thermoplastic polyolefin, TPO is a single-ply roofing membrane that offers excellent performance at a cost-effective price. Heat-welded seams provide superior strength. TPO's long-term heat, UV, and natural fungal resistance, plus flexibility without need for plasticizers also make TPO a reliable low-slope roofing system.
GAF has TPO performance that's proven to stand the test of timeA recent study of EverGuard TPO roofs installed between 8 and 16 years ago found they all performed above ASTM standards for newly manufactured TPO. GAF analyzed membrane samples from roofs across the US and studied thickness over scrim, surface cracking, and the ability to repair aging TPO membranes.

These days, sustainability is a common term in the construction and architectural industries, found in discussions in trade magazines, professional journals, as well as in sales and advertising materials. Despite this, even many professionals are not certain about what characterizes truly "sustainable" buildings or what practical steps they can take to make them a reality. In this article we provide an overview of some useful frameworks, as well as the major topics, for building owners to consider when developing a sustainable building strategy.
With the labor pool stretched thin, finding time-saving solutions like installing a self-adhered roof is high on many contractors' to-do lists. Saving time doesn't mean jeopardizing quality: manufacturers continually work to deliver solutions that help increase efficiencies while still delivering a first-class installation.
Every year manufacturers are invited to showcase their products at the International Builders' Show, a great stop for anyone in the building industry. In 2022, while attending the show in Orlando, FL, visitors were able to take the opportunity to go offsite and visit the Lake Sheen Showcase Home, featuring top-performing products in the industry.
Roof to wall flashing is critical to the performance of every single-ply roofing system. These transition points, where the flat part of the roofing system is tied into the parapet wall, are potentially vulnerable areas for water intrusion. Following the requirements for proper flashing can help ensure that the roof system offers better protection.
