Generally, torch on roofing membranes are made of fibreglass and polyester which are combined with bitumen in layers. This construction results in a product that is heat applied with a torch, which gives this roofing material its name. Torch down membranes are popular for roofing homes and business premises in cold and wet areas. Generally, the layers are arranged in an overlapping manner, which creates superb strength and flexibility once installed on the roof. Torch on roofs offer unique benefits to home and business owners:
They provide excellent durability and can deliver over 25 years of service life. They are also quite resistant to erosion. With good roof maintenance and regular inspections for damage, you can expect long, trouble free service at a very reasonable price.
Torch on roofing is flexible. Layering rubber polymers allows them to expand and contract depending on the prevailing weather and temperature conditions. They are well suited to a variety of weather conditions. The membranes are very waterproof, providing serious protection against the worst rains B.C. can dish out. They can withstand strong winds and even hail storms.
