3. OUR STORY
Topps® Products brings together over 50 years of experience manufacturing products for
the installation, restoration, and renewal of roofs on commercial and industrial buildings in
all climates around the world. In addition to the USA, Topps covers the globe in over 41

• Products previously manufactured:
SilverLeaf and other Bituminous

• Topps Products moved from standard
coatings into whites and in 1983
developed our flagship product

19. Why TOPPS?
The Easy to Live With Option
That’s because it is 100% rubber, 100% seamless, 100% maintainable, with systems for most
all roof types. It installs easily, usually with minimal labor.
Use our repair products even when not installing a full system.
Energy Related Savings
Rooftop temperatures dramatically reduced. The net effect is reduced under roof
temperature with renewed weather protection up top.
Engineered and Manufactured to Outperform Common Acrylics
Stronger, more elastic, more chemical resistant. Greater resistance to temporary ponding
water damages. Helps prevent wash-off from unexpected precipitation. Extends your
application season and results.
The Renewable Resource Making Roofs Sustainable
Topps roofs that are appropriately maintained can also be economically renewed at the end
of the original warranty period at less cost and with excellent results.
