A torch down roofing system is a huge plus to any flat roof. With its added durability and resistance to the elements it may be a no brainer for your building. However, below we have provided some info on the other reasons to consider a torch down roofing system and what makes it such a great idea.
Why Torch Down Roofing?
- What is torch down roofing?
Modified bitumen and PVC roofs use torch down installation methods to achieve an airtight seal. One of the clearest advantages of torch down roofing is the melted membrane layer on top of the roof deck or sheath underneath the material. In turn, it becomes an effective ice dam against rainwater and snowmelt leaks.
- Water resistance
Torch down roofing has heat-sealed seams and ultra-waterproof membranes make torch down roofing one of the most water resistant flat roof systems.
- Energy efficiency
A torch down roofing system can also help lower your cooling and heating bill. It provides protection against UV rays and heat as well.
A torch down roofing system should last about fifteen years. This is due to the added strength from mixing asphalt and rubber compounds.
- Fire resistance
Torch down roofing systems contain modified bitumen which is highly fire resistant.
- Insurance needed
Insurance is needed for this project because the safety of both the homeowner and contractor must be guaranteed.
- Experience needed
These roofs can be a great upside or hazard to your building. With modified bitumen, if the material is overheated the roof can be highly flammable. Only use a company you trust with experience and reviews to install this system.
- Condensation damage resistance
A non-ventilated roofing system can face serious condensation issues. The dark colored roof of a torch down system usually reheats under sunlight enough to get rid of all moisture.
the cost of a torch down roofing system depends on the square footage, materials needed, and the tools used by the contractor or roofing company. We at pro home recommend you get as many quotes as possible before hiring for this project.
