There is a non-local large roofer installing TPO roofs on 2000 square foot residential structures (flat) as part of hurican insurance repairs.
When we went to local roofers, they all recommended the modified build up system.
When asked why to or not use TPO, some said that it might not be appropriate in the warmer South Florida climate.
Can people comment on the tradeoffs of TPO versus the modified system. We are puzzled why there do not appear to be local roofers recommending the TPO system. Would it be a mistake to do a single membrane TPO system here (in South Florida) versus a modified build up.
When we got quotes the local roofers were all a little cheaper than the TPO guy, but we want a quality job as any leak can result in significant damage to the interiors of our units. We are a multi-unit condominium complex.
Thanks for your assistance in advance.
