New Conklin TPO Membrane Coming to Choice Roof Contractors in July

Choice Roof Contractors have something big to look forward to this July 1. Recently, Conklin Company, Inc. and Cooley Group entered into an agreement to bring an exclusive, next-generation, single-ply thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO) roofing membrane to Conklin contractors called OUTPOST. 

OUTPOST will round out Conklin’s superior line-up of high performing, extremely efficient single-ply roofing systems, which includes Flexion (a PVC membrane). This new offering will expand the markets available to Choice Roof Contractors, creating new opportunities for additional revenue and providing customers with more options beyond coatings and PVC.

New Market Opportunities With OUTPOST

This is the first time Conklin Company, a recognized industry leader in state-of-the-art roofing technology, has offered TPO among its products. Building owners, property managers, and contractors alike will be excited to discover a new TPO product that combines unparalleled performance with superior value and durability.

Here are just a few reasons why roofing businesses should want to include OUTPOST among their offerings:

  • More than half of all roofing in today’s commercial and industrial markets is TPO.
  • The global TPO roofing membrane market is expected to reach an estimated $2.2 billion by 2024.
  • TPO is an environmentally friendly solution, a factor more and more businesses and regulatory agencies are bearing in mind.

Like many of Conklin’s ENERGY STAR-rated products, OUTPOST meets today’s stringent standards for environmentally friendly roofing materials, keeping buildings cooler by reducing the sun’s heat and UV rays and lowering utility costs and overall carbon footprint.

OUTPOST will be available in 45, 60, and 80 mils and can be fully adhered or mechanically fastened over a variety of insulation types.  

Backed By Industry Leaders

OUTPOST is the product of collaboration by two industry giants. Conklin Roofing Company formulated one of the first acrylic roofing coatings in the industry more than 40+ years ago, and since then has continued to manufacture innovative, industry-leading products that offer superior protection against the elements and provide substantial energy efficiency.

Cooley Group is the worldwide leader in the development and manufacturing of innovative, sustainable, high-performance engineered membranes used in some of the world’s most high-profile outdoor advertising; architectural building dress; environmental protection; water, fuel, and chemical containment; military; and roofing initiatives.

This is not the first time Conklin and Cooley have partnered with each other. Previously, they collaboratively introduced Flexion XL — a ground-breaking 60-mil PVC membrane designed and created exclusively for Conklin contractors.

New Horizons For Choice Roof Contractors

On July 1, 2019, Conklin Roof Company will launch the newly formulated and manufactured TPO membrane, OUTPOST, opening up a multitude of new prospects for Choice Roof Contractor Group members.

“This latest agreement between Conklin and Cooley Group will add TPO to Conklin’s already strong line of roofing systems, allowing this leading single-ply commodity product to open up a multi-million-dollar market for Conklin, especially in the area of new construction,” said Conklin Company, Inc. owner, CEO, and President Charles W. Herbster.
