Firestone TPO Roofing System
What is TPO Roofing?
Thermoplastic Polyolefin or TPO is a single-ply roofing material made of ethylene propylene rubber. TPO roofing is the fastest growing category of single-ply systems because more and more roofers in Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley use it for its environmentally friendly qualities. TPO roofs have excellent heat reflective properties and are ENERGY STAR rated®. The Cool Roof Rating Council also considers it a cool roof, which means that it helps keep your home’s interior cool.
TPO roofs reflect the sun’s UV rays. This reduces the load on your utility systems, leading to likewise reduced energy consumption and increased savings. In addition, TPO roofs are 100% recyclable at the end of their life span. TPO roofing systems resist algae, dirt, debris, and bacteria build up and withstand harmful ultraviolet, ozone, and chemical exposure. They are durable and resistant to punctures, tears, and impact damage as well.

Benefits of UltraPly™ TPO
Durability, Flexibility and Versatility
UltraPly TPO is highly resistant to tears, impacts, and punctures yet remains flexible to allow for building movement – it is available in 3 different thicknesses, 0.045”, 0.060”, and 0.080”. TPO can be installed on low and high slope surfaces and can be heated and reshaped multiple times, which is particularly helpful when completing roof details.
Economical and Easy to Install
UltraPly TPO’s flexibility allows for a rapid installation and requires little maintenance throughout its life. TPO membranes are commonly fully adhered or mechanically attached to the underlying insulation or cover board. Firestone UltraPly TPO membranes are available in rolls ranging from 5’ x 100’ to 12.4’ x 200 which reduce number of seams and cut labour costs drastically.
Cool Roofing Matters
A light coloured roof that reflects the sun’s energy can play a significant role in reducing the buildings cooling costs. It also offers benefits to the surrounding environment through a reduction of the urban heat island (UHI) effect.
Welded Seams for Long-Lasting Performance
TPO membranes are heat-welded at 926ºC with a hot-air gun. The result is a fused seam that’s stronger than the field of the membrane.
Sustainable and Environmentally Friendly
TPO membranes contain no toxic or hazardous ingredients and are fully recyclable.
