TPO Roofing

Thermoplastic Polyolefin (TPO or TPE-O) is a single-ply roofing membrane used for flat roofing. It is made of ethylene-polypropylene rubber and polypropylene that are polymerized together.

Dependable Roofing

TPO roofing is known for its durability. Designed to withstand the wear and tear of nature, this type of roofing is ideal for climates prone to weather extremes, like Albuquerque. A TPO roof has a life span of 10-20 years with routine maintenance. Its ability to protect against dirt, mold, and debris accumulation.

Modern TPO membranes use wide, lightweight sheets. The weight and size result in less time spent installing a TPO roof, with fewer seams involved.
