TPO Repair

tpo roof repairFor many reasons, TPO roofing (“Thermoplastic polyolefin membranes”) is a desirable option for building protection. It offers strong seam integrity and overall durability. This single-ply roofing also exhibits strong resistance to punctures, tears, impacts, and other damage.

Given these reasons, it’s not surprising TPO roofing represents a big portion of the single-ply roofing market today. But like all commercial roofing materials, TPO membranes are not immune to problems. When any issues do arise, TPO roof repair needs to be completed as soon as possible. Otherwise that initial damage can turn into more costly needs for repair or recovery work.

Read on to learn more about different causes of TPO repair needs.

TPO Roof Repair: Different Causes

tpo seam repairHere’s a few culprits which can give rise to different repair needs:

Roof Seams

TPO roof seams are designed to provide water-tight protection for many years. Nevertheless, the seams can be subjected to stresses which undermine the seams’ welds. Over time, the seams may become more compromised and allow for water entry. These occurrences are especially likely to happen at angle changes or intersection points.

A careful roof inspection should include looking for roof bubbling and cavities. Bubbles along a seam edge can be indicative of moisture accumulating within the seam. Likewise, when a seam’s leading edge is exposed, a cavity can be formed and dirt can build up in that space. Having a professional contractor inspect the seams and perform the most suitable TPO seam repair technique is advisable.

Roof Punctures

Puncturing is another significant cause of damage. It can arise in a number of circumstances. In severe storm activity, hail has proven to be a hazard to all kinds of single-ply membranes. HVAC contractors or professionals in other facility service industries are another factor.

TPO roofing is heat-welded, so patching may be an effective TPO repair roof solution. Beforehand, proper surface preparation is critical: The existing TPO membrane surface must be completely cleansed so it’s free of any dirt or contaminants. A professional contractor will have access to the needed supplies, including specialized cleaners, suitable patching material, and hot-air welding equipment.

Roof Weathering

All roofs are exposed to the elements. Over time, it can lead to intensive roof weathering. Weathering can be caused by heat aging, dirt build-up, accumulation of contaminants on the TPO membrane surface, and more. As a roof becomes more weathered, its physical appeal diminishes and its integrity can be more compromisable.

Regular maintenance is the best preventative. But if the damage is too extensive, more advanced TPO repair roof membrane solutions may be required. One of the most effective TPO repair solutions can be in found in roof restoration applications.
