"Carlisle only allows the best contractors in the industry, to install the best TPO in the industry"
7) Diversity and Versatility
Ensure you get the optimum solution for your roof, a TPO system that is custom fitted for your roof.
Some manufactures offer TPO in limited thickness, width and color. This condensed product offering restricts your ability to get the perfect TPO membrane for your roofing project. It’s important to have a wide range of diversity and versatility, because no two roofing projects are ever the same.
The TPO membranes installed by us are available in a wide range of thickness, widths, lengths, and colors. This allows us to get a custom, tailored fit for your roofing project.
8) Thickness over Scrim (Thicker is better)
The top ply of your TPO membrane is the first and best defense your building has against harmful solar UV and weather, so be certain your next TPO roof system features an optimal thickness over scrim.
The TPO used by Whitco features a typical thickness over scrim of 23 mils. That’s 11 mils over the required ASTM minimum. Many other TPO membranes narrowly exceed ASTM’s minimum thickness over scrim requirement, which could mean a thinner top ply and less overall protection.
Thicker is better, thickness leads to greater weathering resistance, and protection against solar UV.
9) Warranties (Protection you can truly count on)
Be sure that the company providing your warranty has a well-funded warranty reserve and “No Dollar Limit” total systems warranties.
Some manufacturers may not publish or provide information about their warranty reserve.
With our TPO, you can rest assure that your building will have outstanding warranty protection. Carlisle’s total system warranties, as well as a large warranty reserve, reflect a commitment and ability to address any warranty issue.
10) Prefabricated Accessories
A typical roof can have hundreds of penetrations. Ensure that these pipes, curbs, and other obstructions are properly waterproofed with TPO accessories certified by the TPO membrane manufacturer issuing your warranty.
Many Manufacturers only offer a limited number of accessories, while others carry products that have not been certified for quality.
Carlisle offers a countless number of prefabricated and custom made accessories. All of which carry a CFA (Certified Fabricated Accessory) stamp of approval, so that you will know they are manufactured to the highest of standards.
