TPO is short for thermoplastic polyolefin, a single-ply roofing membrane that covers the surface of the roof. TPO is one of the fastest growing commercial roofing systems on the market.

They require less work escalated application. Most modified bitumen rooftops are applied by torch, in spite of the fact that there are likewise self-adhesive and cold-process frameworks. Apart from flat roofs, modified bitumen can be applied on slopes from 3” to 6” depending upon the application.
