TPO Roofing Systems
The biggest positive to installing TPO roofing on your flat roof is the cost. TPO is one of the cheapest materials on the market today, costing less than EPDM or other types of rolled rubber roofing. The other biggest positive to using TPO is its color. This type of roofing is white on top, which can help to reflect the suns light and stop heat buildup within the building.
Other positives include the fact that you have choices in how it is installed; it can be attached with adhesives or fastened directly to the roof deck. It can also be heat welded in places around chimneys and other protrusions. Finally, TPO resists corrosion and break down upon contact with numerous materials. It also doesnt promote mildew or algae growth and doesnt require pressure washing.
Torch Roofing Systems
Torch down is the most commonly used type of roofing for flat or very slight pitch roofs. The official name is modified bitumen (pronounced buy-TOO-men). It is a rolled roofing product that consists of a tough membrane, embedded in a thick layer of asphalt. Rubbery additives with high quality resins in the asphalt allow the roofing to expand and contract, where other roofing systems just crack. The roofing can bond tightly to metal flashings and move with them, while maintaining the bond. This flexibility is the main benefit of modified bitumen and is a big factor in its success.
Torch down roofing is completely impermeable to rainwater and is also resistant to otherwise damaging UV rays. It wont melt or gather large puddles of rainwater, so it is already weatherproof to a good extent. Torchdown roofing is extremely durable. The combination of asphalt and resin means that it is resistant to punctures and other abrasive damage. The strength and resistance of torchdown roofing means that it not only has a life of up to 20 years, but that it will also be virtually free of repairs; except in the most extreme circumstances.
