TPO Roofing Systems
TPO roofing systems are beginning to dominate the commercial flat roofing market in the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex. This holds true for the rest of Texas and most of the other southern States as well. So what’s all the buzz about?
Mike McAuley of Versico, Inc. – a major TPO manufacturer – says, “There’s significant push for TPO roofing systems because (TPO) is environmentally friendly. It’s a recyclable product, and has energy-saving characteristics”. He also points out that engineers, architects and other system specifiers are choosing TPO over other roofing systems because material costs are lower.
Another reason commercial managers are choosing TPO is because white versions carry an Energy Star Rating and are eligible for an EPA cool roof tax credit. Because Energy Star roofing by definition reflects heat rather than holding it, TPO also reduces the urban heat island effect. Shrewd commercial property managers and owners will parlay these environmentally friendly virtues into good public relations opportunities.
TPO roofing systems just makes sense. They are good for the environment, they are economical, they are durable, they save money in cooling bills and the Government rewards owners for purchasing them. Combine this with ultra low maintenance requirements, easy leak detection and low cost repair and we have a winner.

TPO Roofing Membrane
TPO Roofing Membrane typically comes in three standard thicknesses: 45 mil, 60 mil and 80 mil where one mil equals one thousandth of an inch. Which is the best for you?
Naturally, that’s a loaded question as many factors ultimately determine which thickness is best for any given situation. Just keep in mind that the labor cost for installing any of the three remains the same. The only difference in price results from the difference in price of the TPO roofing membrane. Since this difference is likely to be only a small percentage of the total job cost, it’s generally a better idea to go with a thicker membrane as it is more rugged and comes with longer warranties.

FleeceBACK TPO Roofing
FleeceBACK TPO roofing is the best single ply roofing system available. Sure-Weld® FleeceBACK membranes are manufactured using a hot-melt extrusion process and are reinforced with ﬂeece. This results in increased sheet thicknesses with 100 mil, 115 mil and 135 mil varieties available.
This durable and versatile membrane is ideal for either re-roofing or new construction projects. FleeceBACK TPO sheets are chlorine and plasticizer free which gives them excellent chemical resistance to acids, bases, restaurant oils, animal fats and other greases. Because of its unmatched toughness, FleeceBACK TPO roofing is an ideal choice for roof gardens, roofs with solar panel arrays and projects requiring superior wind uplift resistance.
- Wide window of weldability.
- Unmatched toughness, durability and enhanced puncture resistance.
- 115-mil option has 33% more puncture resistance and 33% higher breaking strength than 60-mil TPO
- Greater puncture resistance than Modified Bitumen
- Proven hail damage resistance by passing UL-2218 Class 4 rating.
- FleeceBACK TPO roofing withstood National Bureau of Standards Ice Ball test by withstanding 3″ diameter hail with the membrane cooled to 32°F
Mechanically Attached TPO Roofing
Mechanically attached TPO roofing refers to the application method used to install the roof- not to the TPO material itself. In other words, a roofer could choose to mechanically fasten or fully adhere either FleeceBack TPO, 45 mil or 80 mil TPO. Many commercial managers are favoring mechanically fastened TPO as a more a durable option because the membrane is fastened directly to the roof deck using special screws and large metal plates. They like the fact that no chemical adhesives are used to adhere the membrane.
Fully Adhered TPO Roofing
Fully adhered TPO roofing systems are secured to the roof using various types of chemical adhesives depending on the application. One benefit of using this method is that the resulting install is exceptionally smooth and visually appealing immediately upon completion but the more practical benefit is (initial) superior resistance to wind uplift.
