What is Torch On Roofing?

A torch-on roof consists of two layers of modified bitumen membrane that are approximately 3-4 mm. thick. The base layer is mechanically secured with plates or attached to the substrate with adhesive. The cap layer is similarly composed, but it has a granulated surface to provide protection from the elements.

The top surface of the base layer and the bottom surface of the cap layer have a thermos-fusible surface, which means that they can be thermally merged together (often done by melting the layers with a propane torch)— hence the term “torch-on roofing”.

Benefits of Torch On Roofing

  • The major advantage of torch-on roofing is its durability. Its durability will help to keep maintenance costs low throughout the lifecycle of the roof.
  • The roof is water proof, which means it keeps moisture from invading the interior of the home.
  • The fact that the roof seals in heat, while also preventing moisture from entering the home, can help to reduce energy usage.
  • Suitable for both residential and commercial roofing projects.
