New TPO Roof
If you're in the market for a new TPO roof installation in Colorado or Wyoming, you're in luck. TPO is a great product. It resists high temperatures, UV rays, and a variety of weather conditions. Today's TPO membranes come in a variety of colors, as well, such as green, brown, tan, grey, terra cotta, as well as the standard white. If a light color is used, it reflects heat away from your building, which lowers your cooling bill. What's more, a TPO roof today can last between 20 and 30 years.
Having us install your TPO roof also has its perks. We stand behind our Colorado TPO roof installations with a 5-year workmanship guarantee. We are fully licensed and insured. We always get permits for every roofing project. And, with over 30 years in the roofing business, we know what we're doing. But, don't take our word for it. Contact any of our single membrane manufacturers and ask them if they stand behind our work with a warranty.
When you're ready for your new TPO roof, contact us for a free estimate.

TPO Product Options
New TPO roofs today fit into the following categories. Different manufacturers might give their TPO products their own name, but these are the basic TPO products:
- Standard TPO
- Fleece-backed TPO
- Self-adhering TPO
- TPO with protective film (protects the membrane while we're installing it 🙂
Standard TPO is the most popular TPO roofing product. Standard TPO is polyester reinforced. This allows for flexibility during installation. This TPO product can be ballasted, or chemically or mechanically attached to the roof deck. A ballasted roof is one that's held down with rocks or gravel. Standard TPO comes in white, gray, and tan. White and tan are Energy Star* certified. Up to a 30-year system warranty is available.
Fleece-backed TPO offers superior durability and dependability and is even stronger than standard TPO. Like standard TPO, it is also polyester reinforced. It comes in more colors than standard TPO, however, such as medium bronze, patina green, terra cotta, and more. A 20-year system warranty is available.
Self-adhering TPO is peel-and-stick, which makes for quicker installation. It cannot, however, be installed in temperatures less than 40ºF. A 20-year system warranty is also available.
TPO with protective film protects the TPO membrane while it’s being installed. Once this product is installed, we simply peel the top protective film off, leaving you with a shiny new roof that requires no clean-up. It comes in white, gray, and tan. White and tan are Energy Star* certified. Up to a 20-year system warranty is available.
Cost of a TPO Roof
Today, a TPO roof installation in Colorado or Wyoming costs around $7/sf. This is, of course, an average and it depends upon several things, such as which specific TPO product is being installed, the condition and complexity of the roof, the insulation that is installed, etc. Contact us for a free estimate and to discuss your specific needs.
A new TPO roof should last at least 20 to 30 years, if properly installed, regularly inspected and maintained. As with any roofing product, a long lasting roof starts with a proper installation. This is why commercial building contractors trust us to install their new TPO roof - they know we'll do it right the first time and they know we stand behind our work with a guarantee.
TPO Roof Maintenance
A well maintained TPO roof is essential to its longevity. What's more, a clean TPO roof ensures it reflects as much sun light and heat as possible. Because TPO is installed onto low-sloped roofs, water can pool, dirt and debris can collect. If ignored, this leads to mold, mildew, algae, and plant growth. These can damage your roof, shorten its lifespan, and cost you money to repair or place the TPO membrane.
New TPO Roof Features
Today's TPO roof offers more features than ever before. Unlike PVC, TPO does not contain plasticizers, therefore it is considered a more 'green' or sustainable commercial roofing product for Colorado businesses. TPO is also dirt, bacteria, algae, and mold resistant, again, unlike PVC. Although TPO today comes in a small variety of colors, if a light color is used, it will help lower your Summer utility cost by reflecting heat away from your commercial building. A fleeced-back TPO roof offers excellent hail resistance. A ballasted roof, such as a roof covered in rocks, further protects your roof from hail, debris, and foot traffic. An optional, temporary top film applied to your new TPO roofing membrane helps protect it from scuffs and dirt during installation, which can eliminate some clean-up labor costs.
Who's a TPO Roof For?
Commercial buildings that have a low-sloped roof and are not large restaurants often choose TPO because it's still a solid roofing product that costs less and lasts longer than PVC. If your low-sloped roof can be seen by from the street and curb appeal is a concern, TPO is also for you since it comes in a wide variety of colors.
Commercial buildings, such as these, use TPO:
- department stores
- office buildings
- medical and dental offices
TPO Roof Installation and Repair
Even a high quality TPO roof can fail prematurely if it's improperly installed. That's why a long lasting roof starts with a quality product and a professional installation. Too often we replace or repair roofs that should have lasted longer but didn't, just because they weren't installed correctly. We have a dedicated single-ply membrane installation and repair crew. They only install and repair single-ply membranes such as TPO, PVC, and EPDM. This makes them specialized, focused, and quick in what they do.
It's also very important that your roof be inspected regularly. Often, a potential problem can be spotted before it develops into a bigger one. Common signs to look for are water pooling, blocked drains, ripped or cracked membranes, flashing separation, and loose fasteners. Some problems can quickly be fixed or patched before they develop into more costly repairs.
Hiring Bob Behrends Roofing to install your new TPO roof is a smart move. We are a qualified installer of Versico, Mulehide, Genflex, Johns Manville and IB Roof Systems. This means our commercial crew has gone through the training to earn the trust of these manufacturers, and it allows us to offer multi-year labor and material warranties on all roofing jobs.
We back our work with our 5-year workmanship warranty. This is coverage against installation errors made by us. Most other commercial roofing companies offer only 1 year warranty. And, our material manufacturers warranty our work because they know they can trust us to install their products.
