Everguard® TPO Features
∎ Energy Saving – Much cooler roof being light gray coloured, making it a cooler option than torch and EPDM Rubber. Solar reflectivity lowers cost of air-conditioning and reduces thermal expansion and contraction.
∎ Stronger Joints – Joins are up to 4x stronger than other membranes as joints and laps are traditionally the weakest part of a membrane roof however, TPO uses welding technology to create a seam stronger then the membrane itself.
∎ Warranties – 20, 25 and 30 year warranties coming 3 different weights 45mil, 60mil and 80mil.
∎ Faster – Much faster to install than EPDM butyl or torch membranes.
∎ Consistent – Robotically wielded seam welded on site for a perfect weld every time greatly reducing the chance or failures from improper application or contractor error.
∎ Safe – Zero fire hazard during construction unlike torch membranes that are a construction insurance issue along with worker safety and project security.
