Torch on roofing materials have become a really popular choice when re-roofing flat roofs in the UK in recent years.
This increase in the use of torch on materials may be due to the fact that the method is easy to fit yourself and it is extremely durable.
Across the country, you will notice the majority of commercial buildings have torch on roofing installed to their property. The reason behind this is because of the incredible performance torch on materials provide and the fact that they require little maintenance. Overall, it’s everything a commercial property needs from their roof, which is:
- Long life expectancy of around 15-20 years.
- Low maintenance
You will find that torch on roofing materials, usually, cost a little more than other flat roofing methods such as tar and gravel. However, the advantages of the torch on method means in the long run you will benefit more from it, than in comparison to the other flat roofing materials.
Once the torch on roofing material is installed, after approximately two months you can also have an extra coating applied on top of the roofing material for extra protection. This coating may be an aluminium solar-reflective paint, which will help protect the roof from the sun’s rays and frost. This step isn’t necessary, but it does add extra protection against damage to the roof.
