Roof inspection is extremely important. Many people don’t consider how important roof maintenance is, and part of that is having your roof inspected for any damage or problems with your roof. Over time, even small issues can become worse if they are not addressed. By having a roof inspection performed, you can avoid major damage and catch smaller issues before they get any worse.
We inspect a variety of roofing systems that include:
- Flat roofing
- Shingle roofing
- PVC roofing
- TPO roofing
- Modified Bitumen roofing systems
- Infrared roofing systems
- Masonry roofs
Our roofing services are available for both commercial and residential properties. If you have a roof over your head, we are able to inspect it!
Some of the common problems that we find when inspecting roofs are holes, leakage, and membrane misalignment. There are a few causes of these issues, such as strong winds, improper waterproofing, heavy storms, and more.
Whatever the causes, over the years these factors can lead to damage that only gets worse over time. A regular roof inspection allows you to catch roofing issues early. This saves a lot of time, money, and frustration.
There are a few things that your roofing specialist will consider when analyzing your roof. These include:
- If degradation or shrinkage has affected your roof.
- If there is a loose membrane on your roof.
- Any issues with the roof coating.
- Roof waterproofing and leakage problems.
- The interior roofing system of your building.
After the inspection, a full report will be filled out. This report mentions any problems that were found during the inspection. Once the report has been reviewed, the issues can be addressed.
Keep in mind, these issues won’t fix themselves. In fact, they will get worse over time. This means even more costly repairs down the line. It’s better to have your roof inspected and repaired quickly. Make sure you have your roof regularly inspected to check for leakage and damage. This damage and/or leakage can lead to major issues down the line that can be extremely costly, as it can lead to more severe damage of your property. A damaged roof is also a safety hazard. For your safety and the safety of your loved ones, you’ll want to have your roof inspected for damage.

What is TPO Roofing?
TPO roofing is an energy-efficient roofing solution that is low-slope. The abbreviation “TPO” stands for thermoplastic. Thermoplastic material is well-known for being sturdy and durable. It is also made up of high-quality materials.
TPO often contains membranes that combine more than one material. Two common materials are polypropylene and ethylene-propylene. A special blend of these two is mixed together to produce the TPO material for TPO roofing.
Sometimes TPO roofing is made with additional materials that may include:
- Pigments that help commercial buildings to achieve a specific color.
- Flame-retardant ingredients that help to reduce the risk of fires.
- UV absorbers to absorb UV rays from the sun (which helps with temperature regulation in the building).
Most TPO membranes used in commercial buildings are white because it is reflective. This helps to reduce the risk of overheating the building. Other color options are available, though.
Why TPO Roofing?
There are some major advantages of TPO roofing that make it an excellent option for commercial buildings. While it is often white, the color can be customized to match with the building. Because flame-retardant ingredients can be used during the production of TPO roofing, it removes any risk that the roof will catch on fire. TPO roofing also offers puncture resistance, heat aging, cold temperature flexibility, and tear strength.
If your building is a factory facility where food is prepped, there are additional advantages to TPO roofing. TPO roofing does not degrade with hydrocarbon oils, animal fats, and vegetable oils.
The material used for TPO roofing is resistant to microorganisms, which means you won’t have to worry about an infestation. You also won’t have to worry about exposing staff members in the facility to these harmful microorganisms.
TPO roofing is heat resistant, which makes it a great option for buildings that tend to run hot. Less heat is absorbed from sunlight, which means the temperature of the building can stay cooler.
TPO roofing can be easily customized for your specific property. This is a major advantage.
There are a lot of great advantages to TPO roofing that you’ll want to consider when choosing the right roofing materials to meet your needs. Trekroofing offers TPO roofing, and we are happy to discuss this option with you.
