Torch Down Roofing installation is a service offered by Arcamm Roofing, Insulation & Eavestrough within Toronto and surrounding areas.
Torch down roofing, additionally referred to as modified bitumen roofing, is one of the more common types of roofs used today. It receives its name from the technique of burning the bitumen sheets upon a sheet of fiberglass that’s performed when installed. Burning the bitumen will melt it, therefore, creating a very resistant and durable roofing material. These kinds of roofs, as a result, last for a long time―two decades on average.
The primary upside is that it is very resistant to rainwater, meaning it is beneficial for those with flat roofs. Usually, rainwater collects on flat roofs and begins to damage them over time. However, with this type of roofing, there’d be no damage, whatsoever. The only disadvantage is its cost—that’s somewhat on the higher side. But, as compared with additional roofs, the torch down kind does not require lots of maintenance for a lengthy period of time. Furthermore, high quality resins will be combined with modified bitumen that protects the home from harmful ultraviolet rays.
You must take the cost into account prior to having a torch down roof installed. There are a number of factors which require consideration such as whether you want to employ a contractor to perform the work (recommended) or you have a desire to do it yourself, roofing material quality to buy, as well as cost of other required materials.
Although it might cost a little more than other kinds of roofing materials, if you look at the long-term benefits, torch down roofs are better options as you do not have to spend much on it later.
