Torch on Roofing in Vancouver

November 19, 2015

In previous blogs we mentioned some challenges of having flat roof in Vancouver. Commercial buildings or even some stylish modern residential houses are willing to use flat roof to maximize living/working space in your home or building. Some myths about flat roofing center on concerns of their ability to support the weight of heavy rains and snows, as well as, they require high frequency of repairs and inspections.

As one of the oldest roofing contractors in the Lower Mainland, Affordable Quality Roofing wants you to know that these concerns are not warranted.

SBS roofing/Torch-on roofing as a system is able to add additional strength and resistance to flat/low sloped roofs. One of the features of Torch-on roofing is you can add more layers to it which not only adds more water barriers, but adds to the strength of the roof.

Torch-on roofing has an average life expectancy of over 20 years. In instances that your SBS roof has water issues, roof repairs are easy to do and cost effective when compared to other low slope roofing products. Long and careful roof maintenance that is conducted on a regular basis, is key to getting the most out of your SBS roof.

One of the best parts about having us install your torch on roof is our hot works liability insurance. Fires on construction sites are often high-profile and can be high-cost disasters. Whether caused by flammable cladding/materials or hot works (any activity that involves open flames or that produces heat and/or sparks capable of initiating fires or explosions), we know it’s important and best practice to have this insurance so you and your home safe. Of course, our team always takes extra special precautions when we install or fix up torch on roofs, but having this extra insurance gives us and our clients peace of mind when we’re working on your project.
