What Is the Best Torch on Felt?

Each system has its benefits and drawbacks, so you must weigh them before deciding. Roofing specialists like IKO offer various torch-on felt systems, so you should be able to find one that is perfect for your needs. Three layers that make them durable are:

How to Install Torch on Roofs?

Torch on roofing is a popular choice for residential and commercial roofs. It is installed by melting the membrane with a blowtorch. It can be installed over various roofing materials, including asphalt shingles, metal roofs, and concrete tiles.

To install a flat roof torch on felt, start cleaning the roof surface and removing debris. Then cut the membrane to the correct size and shape using a utility knife or scissors. Leave a margin of at least 2 inches around the roof’s edge.

Next, heat the membrane with the blowtorch until it is soft and pliable. Be careful not to overheat the membrane, or it may burn through. Once the membrane is soft, press it against the roof surface and use the torch to seal it.

Finally, seal the edges of the membrane with sealant to keep water from seeping under the roof. Contact HP Roofing for safe torch-on felt installation in Dublin. Our roofers will install your roof quickly and efficiently.
