Why Choose TPO?

Why choose TPO?

tpo7TPO, or Thermoplastic Poly Olefin, roofing systems are rapidly becoming the top choice among clients from every genre of industry – and with good reason. TPO offers superior protection against virtually anything Mother Nature can throw at your building; from excessive heat and cold, to high wind and the most torrential downpours. Its strong, highly-reflective qualities make it an ideal choice for enduring the long Chicago summers, while the use of welded seams help safeguard your investment against leaks and other potential problems.

TPO formulation is designed to provide excellent ozone and chemical resistance, ensuring long-term roof performance. Plus, TPO is environmentally friendly, offers superior puncture resistance (especially against hail) and costs less than competitive roofing materials. When properly installed, this innovative roofing system can help reduce both heating and air conditioning bills. TPO is available in several neutral color shades, including white, cream, tan and grey. Maintaining a TPO roof is minimal, though regular seasonal cleaning is strongly advised and a service we offer. A-1 All American Roofing has extensive experience in this popular application and stands behind each and every installation we design.
