Torch On Roofing

Contact Us

Torch on roofing, also called torch down roofing, consists of two layers or three layers of SBS modified bitumen membrane melted together by a propane torch (as the name implies).

Torch on roofs are a great choice for commercial and residential properties with flat roofs or low-sloped roofs.

Advantages of Torch On Roofing

When you choose Vancouver torch down roofing from Taves Roofing, you benefit from our extensive experience and perks like:

  • Lightweight: Unlike tar and gravel roofing, a torch on roof is far more lightweight. Plus, you won’t have to deal with messy gravel clogging up your eavestroughs and drains.
  • Long-lasting: These roofs last up to 20 years and are incredibly low-maintenance. If you’re looking for a strong and attractive roof with a long lifespan, a torch on roof can be a cost-effective option and a wise choice.
  • Ultra-durable: Thanks to a waterproof seal, torch on roofs are great at keeping moisture out. The three-layer system is ideal for Vancouver’s wet climate and offers superior waterproofing. This flat roofing also excels at shielding your home or commercial property from extreme heat and falling debris.
  • Energy-efficient: If you’re tired of out-of-control air conditioning bills and energy costs, a modified asphalt torch roof can improve your roof’s performance, keeping conditioned air in.

If you choose high-grade roofing products, you’ll pay about $850 to $1,075 per 1,200 square feet.

What is the life expectancy of a torch roof?

Most roofing systems have a life expectancy of 10 to 20 years. Your torch roof can last for as long as 30 years if you keep it well-maintained. Torch on roofs keep your home well-protected against harsh UV rays and are extremely weather resistant.

What are the disadvantages of torch on roofing?

One disadvantage of torch on roofing is that it’s a bit difficult to install, which means you’ll need to hire a pro to tackle the job for you. Torch on roofing is highly fire-resistant, but if the base sheet and other materials overheat during installation, the compound can break down and catch on fire. Don’t risk burning down your house; call Taves Roofing instead!

What is the alternative to torch on roofing?

Two-ply roofing is a smart alternative to torch on roofing in Vancouver. It includes super-tough layers of chemically adhered or mechanically fastened roofing materials. It offers waterproofing and protection from outside elements, and unlike torch on roofing, it’s highly resistant to catching on fire during installation.
