Thermoplastic polyolefin, or TPO, is one of the fastest-growing options available in the roofing industry. Carlisle is the leading supplier of this specific type of roofing material and we remain committed to providing our clients the best. Carlisle’s Sure-Weld® TPO membranes are ENERGY STAR® rated and Cool Roof Rating Council (CRRC) – certified. The TPO membranes that Carlisle produces have been directly attributed to a noticeable reductions in the amount of energy used by buildings, and in costs associated with cooling a building.
Sure-Weld® membranes are available in sizes up to 12-feet wide and 100-feet long which makes it an ideal roofing solution for any building. These larger sizes allow the installation of a Sure-Weld® roofing system to be performed quickly and efficiently.

CASE STUDY – TPO
Major Drop in Energy Demand and Heat Island Effect
Bay Quality’s team conducted an investigation on the energy saving qualities of a Carlisle “Cool Roof” system. We chose a Carpeteria Store in Sacramento, California for our case study. Davis Energy Group was hired to conduct the investigation over a four-week period in August and September. Sensors recorded interior and roof surface temperatures for two weeks prior to the installation of the “Cool Roof” and two weeks following the installation.
The results showed more than a 60 degree reduction in the temperature of the roof surface and almost a 50% drop in peak energy demand following the installation of its “Cool Roof.” Assuming 130 days of cooling per year this represented a total saving of $1,950 per year for a 14,500 sq. ft. showroom.
