It can be challenging, owning a flat roof in the Midwest. You are subject to any number of weather conditions, across a spectrum of hot and cold. Flat commercial roofs have to be ready to handle any condition, without the benefit of peaks to help with removing water. Flat roofs need to be able to handle standing water, the blistering sun, as well as the weight of human beings walking across its surface. If this sounds like the needs of your roof, our TPO roofing contractors are ready to help assist you in determining if TPO is the right solution for your St Louis property.

Why Choose TPO Roofing?

TPO (Thermoplastic Polyolefin) roofing first made its way to market in the 1990s. This roofing system offers the benefits of heat-welded seams while still remaining affordable. Like a traditional rubber roof, TPO is also made of rubber but with the added ingredients ethylene and propylene, bonded together with a few different fillers (talc and fiberglass to name two). This combination of materials makes TPO one tough roofing system.

So now that we’ve covered the basics, what are some of the specific benefits of TPO roofing?

Cost

TPO roofing is very cost effective. Its cost-effectiveness is due to the overall durability and reliability of the roofing application, comparable to even PVC roofing, but at a far lower cost.

Durability

What many other thermoplastic roofing applications may not provide, TPO can offer in terms of product benefits. TPO itself is mold resistant, which is a considerable benefit with the humid and wet St. Louis spring and summer seasons. It can also withstand both great heat and frigid cold, making it resistant to splitting and cracking.

Flexibility

The ability to resist splits and cracks is largely due to its flexibility. The finish of a TPO roof is flexible enough to wear along with your home’s subtle changes over time, expanding and contracting with temperature changes and natural shifts in your home’s foundation.

Energy Efficiency

This benefit in particular is great for St. Louis homeowners. TPO helps to reduce the energy lost through its tight seals. This lowered energy loss means lower costs for heating and cooling. What TPO saves in cost-effectiveness of installation, it continues to pay it forward to the homeowner through decreased energy costs.

Environmental Friendliness

Another wonderful benefit of TPO is its environmental friendliness. Since it is 100% recyclable, TPO reduces the waste that can so often pile up local landfills. TPO is also free of chlorine, both in its production and its finished product. Chlorine can be toxic for the environment, so a roofing system without chlorine is a better roof for our planet.

When properly installed and maintained, a TPO roof can last for up to 20 years or more. The installation of a TPO roof is fairly easy in terms of other flat roofing applications. The lightweight material allows for fast application, saving you money and time over the course of installation. In order for your roof to reach its full potential, it’s important to have a routine maintenance plan in place. Regular maintenance on a TPO flat roof, or any kind of roof for the matter, will help to identify small leaks before they have the chance to become large and costly leaks down the road.

  • Bob King is an honest, friendly person, easy to deal with. He gave me a good price on my roofing job and his work was done to perfection. My insurance company stated the roof was beautiful, the best in the neighborhood, and should last for twenty or thirty years.

  • B King has done a wonderful job on my flat roof. King is the only one to come through. The job was clean and neat with no problems. B King is at the top of the list I recommend him highly.

  • B King Roofing was recommended to me by a trusted friend in the construction/renovation business to repair/replace a flat roof on a 4 family building we own. He responded to our contact in a timely manner, inspected the current roof, provided me with photographs, provided an up-front detailed quote, and scheduled the work. He finished the work in the time that he promised and provided us with more pictures of the process and the new roof. We were very pleased with our dealings with this company and would recommend them.

  • We ran across BKing when we were in dire need of a roof. He came out, very nice, and explained things fully. We put money down and within a day or so the material was brought in. On the first non-rainy day a dumpster came by and he started to work. He was on time and worked for about eleven hours each day, as daylight provided. He was thorough, he took pictures. The roof looks beautiful like no others in the neighborhood. It's guaranteed longer than I expect to live. Most importantly is that it turns out our roof was causing water to find its way down to the basement. That stopped immediately. This guy is great!
