TPO PCV & EPDM Products
Flat roofing materials like TPO PCV & EPDM products have been gaining a lot of momentum in terms of sales and popularity since they have similar traits to PVC. Not only do these materials have the same installation process and characteristics, but it also offers a fair and competitive price.
While it’s a given fact that these products can be installed over a single membrane for low-pitched and flat roofs and have seams that have been welded together, there are some distinguishable differences. These differences could be a deciding factor on whether you should purchase the material or not.
Thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO) single-ply roofing membranes are among the fastest growing commercial roofing products and have gained praise across the industry for their many performance and installation advantages.
