The Difference Between TPO and Modified Bitumen Roofing: Choosing Roofing Systems For Your Commercial Roof

Trying to decide what roofing material would be best for your commercial roof?

TPO and modified roofing are both popular roofing systems for commercial roofs, so we’ve laid out the details of both roofing options to assist you with making your selection.

TPO Roofing

The benefits of TPO roofing include that it is very durable, tear resistant, and resistant to chemical or grease spills. Another benefit, especially for areas that experience hot weather, is that TPO roofing is UV resistant.

Moreover, TPO roofing is a more environmentally friendly option because of the lack of plasticisers in the insulation, and it is a recyclable material.

Did you know that TPO roofing can be applied over certain existing roofing materials? That’s right! TPO roofing can be applied over secure modified bitumen or metal roofing. This is just another great benefit of TPO roofing to consider if you have existing modified bitumen or metal roofing.

The surface of TPO roofing is also smoother than modified bitumen, which means that your roof will be easier to clean and maintain.

Modified Bitumen Roofing

One benefit of modified bitumen roofing is that it is more affordable than some other commercial roofing options. Compared with asphalt roofing, modified bitumen roofing is a step above since it is more flexible and durable.

The granulated surface of modified bitumen roofing provides protection from UV rays, but keep in mind, sometimes cracks and leaks can be slightly more difficult to identify because of the granules.

However, another benefit of modified bitumen roofing is that it is very resistant to physical damage while also being low maintenance. Also, modified bitumen roofing has high ratings when it comes to fire, hail, and wind, which is an important feature to consider for areas that are prone to experiencing these possibilities.
