TPO: System Benefits

1.) Easy to Install: TPO Roofing Systems install quickly & economically.
2.) Energy Efficient Roofs: White surfaces have been shown to reflect up to 78% of the sun’s rays which will reduce energy costs. 
3.) The Best Lifecycle: TPO provides excellent resistance to fire, UV, airborne bacteria and industrial pollutants such as air-conditioning coolants. Unlike PVC, it contains no chlorine, a plus for the environment.
4.) Lower Labor Costs: Available in widths of 8’, 10’, and 12’ for less seams and less labor compared to standard PVC sheets
5.) Thicker Top Ply: More Production on the top scrim where you need it most, one of the thickest top plies in the industry are available. 

6.) Strength: TPO keeps the moisture out, yet is lightweight, making it ideal for new construction, reroofs, layovers, and retrofit installations. It can handle all the extremes we experience in the Kansas climate. Stands up to rooftop traffic, tools, & equipment.
7.) Flexibility: The membrane remains flexible in hot and cold temperature, so it will not split or crack.
8.) Repairability: TPO membrane remains repairable year after year, allowing for east of future cutouts, alterations and tie-ins. Can be safely cleaned to retain like new appearance.
9.) Heat-Welded Seam Strength: PVC roofs use a heat-welding process that fuses the membrane seams to form a permanent, watertight seal. Superior seam strength provides greater wind uplift resistance.
10.) Code Compliance: UL & FM listed assemblies are available upon request.

TPO: Membrane Types

1.) Standard TPO: Is used in mechanically attached and fully adhered roofing systems in new construction, reroofing and recover (retrofit) applications. It may also be used as flexible membrane flashings for walls, curbs, etc, when installing TPO membrane roofing systems. The system must be installed over acceptable roof insulation or another suitable substrate.

  • Available in white, gray and tan. Specialty colors only available on large applications
  • White and Tan colors are energy star rated
  • Multiple thickness available from 45 mil to 100 mil
  • Can be installed as Mechanically Attached, Fully Adhered, RhinoBond, or Ballasted

  • Can be mechanically attached over existing roof without the need for a cover board
  • Up to a 20-year system warranty available

3.) Self-Adhering TPO: Standard TPO: Is used in mechanically attached and fully adhered roofing systems in new construction, reroofing and recover (retrofit) applications. It may also be used as flexible membrane flashings for walls, curbs, etc, when installing TPO membrane roofing systems. The system must be installed over acceptable roof insulation or another suitable substrate.

  • Available in white only
  • 60 mil thickness only
  • Fully Adhered systems only
  • Cannot be used over wood fiber board, EPS or XPS
  • Up to a 20-year system warranty available

TPO: System DisAdvantages

1.) Foot Traffic: Other trades, like HVAC contractors, may need to do work on a TPO roof after it is installed. TPO roofs are more susceptible to tears than traditional modified roofs. When you have a careless contractor working up on the roof after installation, there is a potential for a rip or tear in the membrane.

2.) Track Record: TPO is somewhat of a new product. Thus far, it has performed extremely well. But, it does not have as long of a track record as other options, such as, Modified Bitumen Bitumen or B.U.R. systems

PVC: System Benefits

1.) Easy to Install (New or Retrofit): PVC Roofing Systems install quickly in one pass with a small, trained crew.
2.) Energy Efficient Roofs: White surfaces have been shown to reflect up to 78% of the sun’s rays to reduce air-conditioning costs. The superb reflectivity of white PVC even reduces the heat build-up under the membrane. PVC white membrane adds to the aesthetics of the building while increasing energy efficiency.
3.) Flexibility: The membrane remains flexible in hot and cold temperatures, so it will not split or crack. PVC can handle the desert sun, sand, arctic freezes, and torrential downpours.
4.) The Best Lifecycle: PVC provides excellent resistance to fire, UV, airborne bacteria, and industrial pollutants such as air conditioning coolants. Reinforced membrane is engineered to remain dimensionally stable over time.

5.) Lightweight yet Strong System: Weighing less than 1 lb. per square foot makes it ideal for new construction and retrofit installations without adding excessive weight to the roof deck. Stands up to repeated exposure to severe climates, high winds, building movement, and routine rooftop traffic.
6.) Heat-Welded Seam Strength: PVC roofs use a heat-welding process that fuses the membrane seams to form a permanent, watertight seal. Superior seam strength provides greater wind uplift resistance.
7.) Code Compliance: UL & FM listed assemblies are available upon request
8.) Animal Fat Resistance: Unlike TPO, PVC is extremely resistant to animal fats, grease, and oils. Making it an ideal roof for any restaurant, industrial facilities, manufacturing plants, and airports.

PVC: Membrane Types

1.) Standard PVC: Is used in mechanically attached and fully adhered roofing systems in new construction, reroofing and recover (retrofit) applications. It may also be used as flexible membrane flashings for walls, curbs, etc, when installing PVC membrane roofing systems. The system must be installed over acceptable roof insulation or other suitable substrate. See the Mule-Hide PVC Specifications Manual for complete specifications and details.

  • Available in white, gray and tan. White and Tan colors are Energy Star rated
  • Excellent Chemical Resistance, better solution for food service industry than TPO
  • White and Tan colors are Energy Star rated
  • Multiple thickness available from 45 mil to 100 mil
  • Can be installed as Mechanically Attached & Fully Adhered
  • Up to a 20-year system warranty available

2.) Fleeceback PVC: Is used in fully adhered and mechanically attached roofing systems in new construction, reroofing and recover (retrofit) applications. The system must be installed over an acceptable roof insulation or another suitable substrate.

  • Available in white only
  • Multiple Thicknesses available from 45 mil to 60 mil w/ a 55 mil fleece liner
  • Can be installed as Mechanically Attached or Fully Adhered
  • Can be mechanically attached over existing roof without the need for a cover board
  • Up to a 20-year system warranty available

3.) Standard/Fleeceback PVC w/ KEE: Is used in mechanically attached and fully adhered roofing systems in new construction, reroofing and recover (retrofit) applications. The addition of KEE reduces brittleness of PVC membranes overtime. KEE is an insurance policy after the roof is installed. Even if the liquid plasticizers migrate out and are lost, the KEE will ensure the flexibility of the membrane. The system must be installed over acceptable roof insulation or another suitable substrate.

  • Available in white, gray and tan. White and Tan colors are Energy Star rated
  • Multiple thicknesses available
  • Can be installed as Mechanically Attached & Fully Adhered
  • Cannot be used over wood fiber board, EPS or XPS
  • Up to a 20-year system warranty available

PVC: System DisAdvantages

1.) Aging: PVC roofs lose their plasticizers over time. The plasticizers keep the membrane flexible. This makes the roof rigid and brittle over time. Therefore, the membrane will become more prone to cracking over time. This can be reduced by installing a PVC KEE membrane instead of a standard PVC membrane.

2.) Odor: PVC stands for Polyvinyl Chloride. This is not considered an environmentally friendly product. Some building owners have even complained about the odor that can be present after a PVC roof is installed.

Coatings: System Benefits

1.) Cost: Coatings can extend the life of your roof at a lower cost than a full roof replacement.

2.) Energy Efficient Roofs: White surfaces have been shown to reflect up to 78% of the sun’s rays which will reduce energy costs.

3.) Flexibility: The elastomeric coating system bends and stretches with the roof

4.) Installation: less disruptive than other systems that require tearing off the existing roof.

5.) Versatility: coatings can be applied to many substrates including metal, asphalt and singles ply roofs.

Coatings: The Process

1.) Prepare: Address all problem areas. Identify any wet insulation. Repair and replace with like materials to make watertight before coating. For metal roofs, make sure to tighten or replace any loose or missing fasteners.

2.) Power Wash: remove all dirt and debris off the substrate

3.) Seal: Seal roof penetrations to manufactures specifications.

4.) Prime: Apply a primer coat to manufacture specs. For rusted metal roofs, apply rust inhibitor. Fore some applications, this step is not necessary

5.) Preserve: As the final layer of protection, apply up to 2 coats of highly reflective coating.

***Different substrates have slightly different processes. This is a general idea of the process.

Coatings: System Disadvantages

1.) Ponding Water: Coating systems do not do well when there is ponding water. Make sure your roof has great drainage before paying for a coating.

2.) Odor: Some coatings produce an odor that is unpleasant during the construction process

3.) Longevity: The longevity of a coating system will be much lower that almost all roof replacement systems.
