TPO, or thermoplastic polyolefin, is a popular single-ply membrane roof system that offers leak protection for commercial buildings, warehouses, and flat roofs in general. TPO roofing is long-lasting, lightweight, and included among cool roof options.
While it’s an economical choice, it has a shorter lifespan than EPDM or other membrane systems. So, what happens when your building’s roof reaches the end of that lifespan or, worse, is damaged?
Yes, TPO can be repaired! Punctures, leaks around flashing, weak spots at parapet angels, etc. can be repaired by our roofing professionals. The best solution for TPO roof repair is to apply one of Conklin’s roof coating systems. When installed by our trained roofing contractors, a roof coating system can add 20-30 years to the life of your TPO roof.
These cool roof systems can also increase your building’s energy-efficiency. They are a great solution for mitigating leaks and future roof deterioration.

Yes, TPO is an affordable, leak-protective system for commercial roofs.
On the East Coast, we experience some severe storms throughout all four seasons plus high heat in summer and windy/salt air conditions along the coast. This synthetic rubber roof compound resists UV radiation and ozone exposure.
TPO can reduce a building’s solar heat gain and provides seamless leak protection. It also doesn’t promote mildew or algae growth and requires no pressure washing.
A TPO roofing installation typically costs less than an EPDM roof or other similar, rolled membrane roofing. Your cost will depend on the current condition of the roof and its size. Generally, TPO costs between $5-$15 per square foot.
However, a roof restoration will cost thousands less than a roof replacement. You’ll have fewer labor costs and less waste to end up in a landfill (less disposal cost).
TPO roofing typically lasts 10-20 years on low-slope, flat-roof buildings. A roof coating system can add decades to the life of your TPO roof.
TPO is a popular choice for use in large commercial, industrial, warehouse, and institutional applications. Our roofing professionals are ready to help you learn more about TPO and other commercial systems to suit your needs and your budget.
