TPO, Thermal Plastic Olefin
As every commercial building owner knows, heating and cooling a large building can be quite costly and the prices continue to rise. With uncertain energy prices and unpredictable global markets you need all the help you can get. No matter what your needs are we have a roofing solution for you. TPO aka Thermal Plastic Olefin is a single ply roofing system recently offered by Conklin through a partnership with the Cooley Group. TPO is a heat welded single ply with overlapping joints. Starting from the bottom of a roof slope the top leading edge is fastened securely to the roof decking. The next run of single ply over-laps the top fastened edge and is heated until the over-lapping edge permanently bonds to the bottom sheet below.. TPO is brilliant white in color reflecting up to 85% of solar radiance aka heat from the sun. This white reflective roof can be applied over most structurally sound, properly fastened surfaces.
Conklin Spray Foam Roofing System is a 3 Step system.
Step #1 The Roof Decking is Cleaned and Repaired as Necessary.
Step #2 Over-lapping Horizontal Runs of TPO are Fastened to the Roof and Welded Together
Step #3 All Pipes, Vents etc that Pass Through the Roof are Flashed with Custom TPO Flashing.
Conklin Spray Foam Roofing systems offer such high energy savings that they normally pay for themselves (through energy savings) in 7 year or less. In extreme cases some building owners have reported breaking even in 4.5-5 years. Check with your local Conklin Contractor to ask about installing TPO on your Commercial Roof. The entire foam roofing system is extremely light at around eight (8) oz per square foot. TPO Roofing Systems are light-weight and can (with only a few exceptions) be installed over the existing roof structure without overloading the structural capacity ratings.
