∎ 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.
∎ Water collection – Potable drinking water collection for use in pools or consumption.
∎ Wide rolls – 66% less joins achieved by 3m wide rolls compared with 1m rolls of torch.
∎ Easier to install – Full accessories available for every detail and corner including penetrations.
∎ Option – Bonded Fleece back option.
∎ Odorless – No odor during or after installation.
∎ UV Resistance – Excellent industry leading long-term heat and UV resistance.
∎ Reinforced – mesh layer in the core of the membrane making TPO puncher resistant and less likely to travel or move over the life of the roof.
∎ Easy to repair – Can be altered and welded after installation.
∎ Strong wind – uplift rating with a fully adhered installation.
∎ Incredible smooth – clean finish and look consistently pleases customers.
∎ USA manufactured – by North Americas largest roofing manufacture GAF.
∎ NSF/ANSI 347: Providing architects and contractors with a certified sustainable option for single-ply roofing membranes.
∎ EPDs: Publishes Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) for Single-Ply Roofing Membranes.
GAF EverGuard TPO roofing is produced by North America’s largest roofing manufacturer and has been independently tested to have better accelerated age testing showing higher performing heat and UV resistance than competing TPO products.
