Invest in a quality flat roofing material with All Systems Roofing. As your local leader in flat roof solutions in Cambridge and the surrounding area, we offer both TPO and PVC systems. Explore the features and benefits of these materials before learning more about the installation process. Stop any leaks in your roof and cut down on your utility costs with this popular flat roof option.
Thermoplastic polyolefin, or TPO, is a single-ply membrane system designed to be long-lasting, energy-efficient and UV resistant. It comes in a range of colours, including white and grey.
TPO sheets are stored and transported in rolls between 6 and 12 feet in length. Depending on the application and your investment, you can choose membranes ranging between 45 mil and 60 mil.
These sheets are recyclable, so choosing a TPO flat roof system is an environmentally friendly option. Once installed, it offers a highly reflective surface that reduces UV radiation and promotes a cool, energy-efficient roof.
PVC is a classic single-ply membrane that remains a popular alternative to TPO. Polyvinyl chloride offers many of the same benefits of TPO, particularly a durable, energy-efficient flat roof. Discuss the pros and cons of both systems with our experienced technicians to find out the best solution for your flat roof.
PVC comes in similar colour choices as TPO, with white and grey remaining popular options. It offers higher levels of chemical resistance, making PVC a convenient option for restaurants or food processing facilities.
Discuss the plasticizers and other chemicals used in your particular PVC system with our roofing experts. Some break down more quickly in extreme weather conditions, making them less suitable for a long-term investment.
Depending on the type of PVC system you choose, it may have a higher cost and create more environmental concerns than TPO. At All Systems Roofing, we work with you to ensure you receive the optimal roofing material for your building and budget.
Despite the material differences between TPO and PVC systems, the installation process is similar. Our team prepares your flat roof, removing any necessary debris or other roofing material.
We then roll out the membrane, which can be either adhered to or mechanically fastened to the roof. The seams are heat welded to prevent any water leak or other issue at the edges of each roll. This process can be complex without the right experience, so trust our highly experienced team. We wrap up the project by ensuring the mechanical curbs and flashings are properly installed to create a leak-free surface.
Some low pitch roofs can enjoy the same benefits with a single-ply membrane. Ask our team if we can safely install a PVC or TPO system on your sloped roof for an efficient and durable solution.
