McHenry Roofing is pleased to announce the launch of their new torch down roofing service for their clients in Baltimore and the surrounding areas. Torch down roofing has become a popular choice for flat roof installation due to its strength and versatility. McHenry Roofing has years of experience in this field and they are excited to offer this updated service to their customers.
Torch down roofing (sometimes referred to as “torch on” roofing) is so named because it requires an open-flame propane torch. In this installation method, sheets of modified bitumen are rolled out onto the roof, and a roofing professional uses a hand-held propane torch to heat the material and adhere it to the surface. Once the layers reach the right temperature, seams are melted together to create a waterproof seal.
The membrane layers of a torch down roof are made of an asphalt compound called bitumen that is modified with either rubber or plastic. The main strength of this type of roofing is that it can expand and contract without melting or cracking. It has a high tolerance for both the heat and the cold it will experience on the roof during the change of seasons. There are different types of torch down roofing including two-layer and three-layer systems.
These layers provide excellent protection from water damage while also being lightweight enough not to put too much strain on the existing structure. Torch down roofs have been known as “the ultimate durable flat roofs” because they last longer than other types of flat roofs and can even last up to 10 years before needing repairs or replacement.
A major benefit associated with using torch down roofs is that they require very little maintenance compared with other types of flat roofs such as asphalt shingle roofs or metal roofs. Additionally, these roofs are extremely energy efficient which helps keep the home's energy costs low throughout all seasons.
