What is TPO Membrane and why should I use it on my RV? -By PMP United
TPO (thermoplastic olefin) roofing membranes are a popular choice for commercial and residential flat roofs due to their durability, flexibility, and energy efficiency. We focus on an extremely popular use for these membranes which is RV/Trailer Roofs. TPO roofing membranes are made from synthetic rubber and can be easily installed by specific adhesives and self level. This creates a seamless and waterproof barrier that protects the roof from water damage and leaks.
One of the main benefits of TPO roofing membranes is their durability. They are resistant to UV radiation, ozone, and extreme weather conditions, making them a long-lasting roofing solution. TPO roofing membranes also have excellent puncture resistance, which helps prevent damage from foot traffic and other mechanical impacts.
Another advantage of TPO roofing membranes is their flexibility. They are able to stretch and move with the RV or building, which helps prevent cracks and leaks. This makes them ideal for roofs that experience temperature fluctuations and movement, such as those in areas with extreme temperatures or earthquakes.
TPO roofing membranes are also energy efficient, as they reflect the sun's rays and help reduce the heat absorbed by the roof. This can lead to energy savings and a lower carbon footprint for the building.
There are a few different types of TPO roofing membranes available, with the most popular being white.. White TPO roofing membranes are the most popular choice due to their energy-saving properties, as they reflect the sun's rays and help reduce the amount of heat absorbed by the roof. Darker TPO roofing membranes are also popular, as they absorb heat and can help melt snow and ice on the roof.
In terms of installation, TPO roofing membranes have multiple ways of being installed properly. There are easy to follow videos online that help with installation.
