This project was 22 squares or 2,200 square feet. We tore off existing TPO, 2” polyiso insulation and tar and gravel roofing.
We did not do any work on the rear patio cover or carport. With the carport being in the way, we would have thrown debris off of the roof into a wheelbarrow and run the wheelbarrow to our dump trucks. We were allowed to use the neighbor’s driveway and get it next to the home to throw debris directly into the dump truck.
We replaced all canales with TPO canales. We mechanically fastened a ¼” per foot tapered expanded polystyrene insulation system over the roofing substrate to provide slope, and mechanically fastened Carlisle Sure-Weld TPO (60 mil). We installed TPO flashings up to the inside corner of the parapets.
We installed termination bar at edge of all flashings and caulked them to seal. We installed boots on all penetrations, clamped and caulked. We inspected and probed all seams and detail work. We worked on this roof for two days.
On the first day we had 12 men working from 7 AM until 6:45 PM. On the second day, we only had 2 men working from 8:45 AM to 10:30AM finishing up detail work. We pulled a city permit in order to do this work and passed final inspection. Our TPO roofs carry a full 12 year labor and 20 year material warranty.
Basic Advantages to TPO Roofs:

- Installed without disruption to building operations
- Highly reflective, the white membrane delivers real cost savings for building owners and managers
- Cost effective
- Code compliant
- Professionally installed
