What is Torch-On Roofing?

Torch-on (or torch-down) roofing is a blend of resin and asphalt that is applied to the roof by a torch (hence the name). Torch-on roofs are perfect for commercial roofs and are equally great for flat or nearly-flat roofs. It’s resistance to the weather, rot, or even pests makes it a great selection to provide a roof with protection for a long time. If your building is in an area where water or snow can build up for longer periods of time, torch-on is a great choice to help as a water barrier for your roof.

There are two types of torch on roofing available, either a two layer system or a three layer system. The simple difference between the two is that the three layer system has an extra asphalt layer that will provide a longer life span for the roof. Depending on the need, either one of these types can be used on your project - ask us for more information as to what may be best for you. 

Installation, done by a professional, is a simple process of rolling out the layers and applying heat via a torch. This then provides a strong and durable barrier to water for your building.
