TPO Beats EPDM Hands Down
TPO Beats EPDM—Hands Down. Here’s The Proof...
Excellent seam strength. EverGuard® TPO’s seams are 4 times stronger than taped EPDM, which is critical for a long-lasting watertight roofing system.
EASIER TO INSTALL
What could be easier than 1-2-3! EverGuard® TPO installs in just 3 easy steps. EPDM takes 12 steps to install—which means more likelihood for error. Not only that, making repairs to an EverGuard® TPO roof is just as simple: just cut a patch and weld in place.
Savvy property owners and designers know that choosing the right system is key to minimizing installed cost. EverGuard® membranes come in three styles (including smooth, fleece-back, and self adhered), with multiple installation options (including mechanically attached, RhinoBond®, fully adhered, and self-adhering). With the most prefabricated accessories available in the industry, EverGuard® TPO gives you maximum design flexibility and allows you to apply the lowest-cost solution to your specific roofing need. The result? EverGuard® TPO systems are less expensive than EPDM on an installed cost basis!
TPO is the clear winner when it comes to energy efficiency!
• TPO’s highly reflective material helps to reduce overall demand charge on commercial buildings, which accounts for 30–70% of a total electricity bill.
• A highly reflective white EverGuard® roof can be as low as 110°F (43.3°C).
• low as 110°F (43.3°C).
• EverGuard® roofs transmit much less solar radiation (versus black EPDM) into your facility, thereby resulting in energy savings.
• Hours of daylight
• Snow cover
• The low angle of the sun
