Looking for a new flat roof? Torch down roofing is one of the many commercial roofing options available to you, and it has a number of things to offer. Sully-Jones Roofing recommends checking it out.
What Is Torch Down Roofing?
Torch down roofing is a flat roofing option available in two- or three-layer systems. It gets its name from the way it is installed, utilizing a torch to adhere the roofing membrane to decking underneath and seal seams between rolls of material used. Both two- and three-layer torch down roofing systems feature bases and cap sheets, but the latter also comes with a second cap sheet that not only offers added protection but also boosts a torch down roof’s other attributes.
Advantages of Torch Down Roofing
Longevity – Installed properly, torch down roofing can last a very long time, even under harsh weather conditions. Employ proper maintenance as well and you can extend its service life and avoid roof repair to make the most of your investment.
Leak Resistance – One of reasons torch down roofing lasts because it is able to resist leaks well, made of a modified bitumen membrane that is strong and water-resistant yet flexible. Modified bitumen is made from asphalt mixed with a polymer.
Heat Resistance – Torch down roofs also provide protection against heat and can reflect the sun’s heat back, helping keep passive heating at bay to make it easier to achieve ideal indoor temperatures, especially during summer.
