TORCH-ON FELT ROOFING
Torch-on roofing is a flat roof covering solution that involves three layers of modified bitumen (felt) melt-welded onto the roof surface and each other with the use of a blowtorch to create an impenetrable, waterproof seal.
Torch-on roofing felt is known as one of the quickest and most reliable flat roof installations readily available in the UK and has become a popular system for these reasons.
One of the factors that adds to this quick installation time is the ability of torch-on felt to be applied in both dry and wet conditions. This is one advantage it holds over other popular flat roof repair solutions.
Torch-on roofing felt’s reliability lay in its resistance to UV rays, strong winds and rain. The mineral finish of the felt breaks up sunlight as it hits it to stop the bitumen from melting. This means temperatures inside applications are kept cool during the summer.
Torch-on felt can be applied to concrete, timber and metal deck flat roofs, and can form the covering for garages, sheds and flat roof extensions. As well as residential applications, torched-on roofing felt can also be applied to larger, commercial buildings.
