Thermoplastic Polyolefin (TPO) is a single-ply reflective roofing membrane. TPO is one of the fastest growing roofing products in commercial and residential roofing systems today.

Once done, it is ballasted with a layer of smooth river-stone. Presently, this roofing is gradually used with materials that are more advanced like fiberglass membranes.
