Here at Hepler Contracting LLC, we have vast experience in Commercial Roof Replacement and Commercial Roof Repair. TPO is our preferred option for commercial roof installation. Installing a TPO roofing system has many benefits that other alternatives do not. The first is energy efficiency. Naturally, EPDM, being black, is far more welcoming and absorbs more sunlight than a TPO roof, which is white and reflective of sunlight. In the heart of summer, with 12 plus hours of sunlight, the heat absorption of EPDM roofs can make a significant difference in your energy costs! Secondly, punctures can be a significant detriment to the integrity of your roofing system. With that being said, EverGuard TPO is more resistant to punctures than reinforced EPDM and significantly more resistant than non-reinforced EPDM of the same thickness. There is also a smaller propensity for TPO to shrink when compared to EPDM. Finally, “You’re only as strong as your seams!” When installing EverGuard TPO, the seams will be welded together. This creates a fusion that is stronger than taped EPDM seams, which should lend to your commercial roof’s longevity. We are here to assist with any of your commercial roofing needs!
