The process of installing torch down roofs involves melting the material to the sheathing that supports the base of the structure to create a seal that prevents leaks into the building structure. At Aline roofing we have the team and tools to install a torch down roof system for your commercial building the right way!
The Two Types of Torch Down Roofs
There are two ways to go when installing your torch down roofing system. The two-layer system is the process when our roofers install a base layer followed with the torch down layer. The three-layer system has the base layer, a smooth torch down layer and then topped off with a granular surface. This surface usually tends to last longer with less maintenance than the two-layer system, if installed correctly.
Torch Down Roof Costs
Torch down roofs tend to cost a little more than other roofing systems at first; however, its long lifespan and resistance to severe weather conditions make it an affordable purchase for your commercial building. There are lower-cost alternative products that may look like the torch down roofing system, but those tend to have a lower lifespan and more maintenance work, making it more expensive in the long run.
Torch Down Advantages & Disadvantages
Torch down roofs have many benefits for your commercial building. Because of its rubberized asphalt material, the product is preventable from water leaks and is UV resistant (making your building cooler in the summer). The three-layer torch down roof requires minimal repair or maintenance throughout it’s lifespan, which tends to be around 15-20 years, making it an affordable long-term purchase. Like always, there are some disadvantages. The torch down roof installation is a dangerous process that only professionals who have the appropriate tools and experience should handle. If a material gets over-heated, it can easily catch fire to dry surfaces.
