In this video, you will learn the difference between TPO roofing and EPDM roof, as described by roofing company experts. In the video, the roofing project takes out the PVC system in the EPDM and replaces it with a top single-ply membrane system. The expert says that though all the materials are great for different roofing needs, he chose the TPO over EPDM because of the plasticizer in PVC.
This is because PVC expands and contracts and comes off or cracks as seen along parapet walls. The EPDM tends to hold more moisture, and though Denver, Colorado, is a dry area when EPDM gets moisture, it does not do well and ruins the roof. The TPO is usually the best middle grade, and they have found that TPO works best in this area and for the needs of that project.
Whether you’re in the market for a new roof or are just curious about the differences between EPDM and TPO roofs, watch the video to learn more about the pros and cons of the TPO and the EPDM roofing materials. After this video, you’ll have learned from the experts of the roofing company about the best roofing material for your home.
