Energy Efficient

Energy efficiency is one of the reasons TPO's popularity continues to grow. Our quality Firestone TPO offers features not available in all types. For example, our TPO is ozone, chemical and microbial resistant, providing TPO roofing with an increased lifespan.

TPO is considered a cool roof, primarily due to its ability to reflect the sun’s heat and radiation. This results in a cooler roof, and consequently a cooler interior. A cool roof can reduce the cost and frequency of need for air conditioning. An added bonus of a reflective roof is that it will last longer, weathering the sun far better than a non-reflective roof can. Longhorn commercial roofing in Houston, TX provides Firestone TPO roofing, and is Energy Star, CRRC, and LEED approved.

TPO roofing offers durability and strength, with superior puncture, tear, and wind uplift resistance. TPO roofing can be mechanically attached, fully adhered or ballasted, allowing to be adapted to your needs. Its seams are heat welded for superior strength and protection against leaks. Longhorn Commercial Roofing in Houston, TX offers roofers with the expertise to provide the quality you can count on.

TPO Repair

When repair of your roofing of any kind is required, including TPO repair, it should be provided promptly. A lack of the needed repair can result in leaks, larger tears and damage to the structure. If you require TPO repair, contact Longhorn commercial roofing in Houston, TX.

Roof Seams

TPO roof seams are exceptionally long lasting, and provide watertight protection. However, the seams of any commercial roof are only as strong as the skills of a qualified roofer.  Longhorn commercial roofing in Houston, TX will provide the quality roof you require.

When providing the bi-annual roof inspection of your TPO roof, inspect for damage, roof bubbling and cavities. Bubbles along a seam edge may indicate moisture inside the seam. In addition, inspect the seam edges for cavities. Look for dirt accumulation in cavities to help identify them. TPO repair provided by a qualified commercial roofer ensures long lasting, effective, and quality repairs.


Punctures of the roof can occur due workers on the roof, severe storms with blowing debris, and hail events. TPO roofing is heat-welded, and provides an exceptionally strong seam, as long as it is properly provided. When repair is required, proper surface preparation is essential for a strong, durable repair. This is why an experienced roofer is essential for providing the long term performance of your roof.

While reflective roofs will last longer, eventually roof repair will be required.  As a roof ages, its integrity is more easily compromised, causing it to be more vulnerable to soiling, storm damage. Routine maintenance provides the best means of extending your commercial roof's service life.

Roof Coatings Provide TPO Repair

Roof coatings are an excellent solution for TPO roofing in need of repair. They offer a cost-effective, long-term solution for existing roof problems and for helping to prevent future problems. Roof coatings not only correct the problems your roof is experiencing, they can renew your roof and provide a number of additional benefits, including the following:

  • Provides  superior waterproofing with its cell structure and a monolithic membrane without seams
  • Seals seams, and eliminates leaks
  • Extends the existing roof lifespan
  • Resistant to UV degradation, hail, and high winds
  • Prevents the need for costly roof tear-off and landfill fees
  • Provides protection of the roof from UV exposure
  • Available in wide widths, cutting down on installation time
  • Expands and contracts with building movement due to temperature fluctuations
  • TPO provides exceptional durability and strength
  • Thicker is better, and TPO is available in thicknesses from 45 mils to 80 mils
  • TPO offers up to 90% reflectivity, saving your business energy and money
  • ENERGY STAR® and LEED certified
  • TPO is fully recyclable


You hear it a lot, maintenance and routine roof inspection is the key to extending your commercial roof's lifespan. For any roof, keeping debris off the roof, and a minimal biannual roof inspection is the first step in roof maintenance. Inspection involves checking for damage, standing water, loose seams and attachments, deterioration, soiling, and checking closely along the perimeter, around intrusions, including HVAC units for moisture. Moisture will hasten roof deterioration and if the HVAC system is vaporizing water, or draining it away, your roof will suffer.
