TPO Roofing Installation Methods
TPO roofs are installed in three primary methods;
1) Mechanically fastened TPO roofs are installed with a series of precisely fastened plates and screws that are attached directly to the structural roof deck. These attached seams are then covered with the next roll or course of TPO which covers the plates. The two TPO sheets are heat welded together with hand welders and our robotic seam welders. All TPO seams are then tested thoroughly with a seam probe to ensure a water tight, strong TPO weld.
2) Fully Adhered TPO roofs are installed with adhesive to the roof substrate, usually an insulation layer. This adhesive can either be applied in a liquid form or can come applied from the manufacturer with a peel-off adhesive protecting sheet.
3) Ballasted TPO roofs are installed “loose” and sealed over the substrate. After all seams, penetrations, & flashings are welded and tested, the ballast is placed on top of the TPO membrane to hold the membrane down. The ballast of choice for TPO roofs is usually smooth river rock of 2-3 inches.
