Flat Roofing Popular Choice of Material Torch On Felt.

Torch On Felt membrane is now the most popular system used.

How much will your Torch On Felt repair cost?

Usually we can give you a quick estimate over the telephone for those small torch-on-felt repair jobs and when the problem has been assessed by one of our experienced roofers, we can usually carry out the repair work on the same day as you receive your estimate.

If you have noticed emerging problems with the existing Torch On Felt materials installed to your domestic, commercial or industrial property, it is advisable to get them looked into as soon as possible so you do not end up having a completely different repair, more severe and more expensive problems later on.

As the title suggests, the technique involves heating a layer of bitumen that has been applied to the felt using a Propane gas torch, which melts the bitumen allowing it to bond to the substrate or under layers of felt previously applied. Together the layers form a flat roof system. Traditionally the roll and pour method was used. This involved heating Bitumen in a specially designed boiler and transporting it to the roof in buckets.

Outdated Pour and Roll

It would then be poured out and the felt rolled over the molten bitumen, and covered with chippings, some roofers would spread the chipping on a dry surface and some would apply the chippings to a bitumen layer. This type of application is very specialised and dangerous and a major influence for the introduction of Torch-On Felt.

The advantages of having a Torch-On Felt system installed are obvious, there is a lot of choice on the market that can cause confusion though. Some of these options available include torch-on, self adhesive, pour and roll and Glass Fibre membranes. We will be able to give you professional roofing advice on the right type of flat roofing membrane for your property.

Torch-on membranes can be applied to a wide range of roofing scenarios in a relatively straightforward manner.

  • Felt flat roofing is generally applied in four layers comprising of:
    A vapour barrier – Normally Glass Fibre based
    Insulation layer – Closed cell ridged board in varying thickness.(Not applicable in all cases)
    Intermediate layer
    Cap sheet

Torch-on membranes are extremely effective and can provide you with a good quality roof for years to come. However, applying these can be dangerous and it is essential to consult a professional construction company if you are thinking about having one of these installed. Enlisting the help of professionals will ensure that the job is carried out correctly, whilst it will also prevent you from potential injury.
