TPO roofing manufacturers work to continually improve their product. There is a delicate balance between UV stabilizers, flexible plasticizers and other components and each manufacturer keeps their formula a proprietary secret. The TPO membranes of today are miles ahead of the membranes produced 20 years ago.
In this article we discuss the differences in the various TPO roofing manufacturer’s products, policies and commitment.
Carlisle Syntec TPO Roofing Systems
Carlisle TPO roofing systems are unique in that Carlisle-Syntec specializes in producing single ply roofing systems. They produce TPO, EPDM and PVC single ply membranes and seek to produce them better than anyone else. We feel that the Carlisle FleeceBACK system is the best single ply option available. Others disagree.
At Lone Star we are certified by multiple manufacturers to install every major roofing system. We factor the same overhead and profit into every estimate regardless of the brand chosen by the Owner. As such, we call it like we see it. Ultimately, we want to install the system that performs the best and costs us less in call backs and warranty expense. For us, that ends up being FleeceBACK.
For honest, expert evaluation of your unique conditions complete with value based roof repair solutions, call Lone Star. We will provide multiple options based on your preferences and discuss with you frankly what to expect from each one.
