Torch Down Roofing

A majority of flat roofs are constructed using torch down roofing materials. Torch down roofing gets its name from the method by which it is applied. These roofing techniques are installed in sheets that overlap each other, and the area that overlaps is then heated with a torch so they bond together.

The materials used in most torch down roofing applications are also known as rubberized asphalt. The melting of this overlapping bitumen by torching them together creates a very durable and highly resistant roof, which gives most torch down roofs an average lifespan of around 20 years. You won’t have to worry about paying for a roof repair for decades at a time.

Additionally, a large number of flat roofs are done with roofing materials because of rubberized technologies. These are highly beneficial for flat roofs that might collect water in some spots. Older buildings might have drainage problems that cause small puddles to form, but with rubberized torch down roofing materials, these puddles will dry in the exterior of the building, rather than drain through to the interior. Though this highly water-resistant material might cost a little more than some other methods, it is still regarded as the best type of roofing material for flat roofs that might not drain as rapidly as other types of commercial roofs. The investment will be well worth the peace of mind of having a proper drainage system.
