Torch On Roofing
There's no better solution than Torch On Roofing
Why Torch On Roofing?
Improve Your Roof’s Performance with the Vancouver Torch-On Roofing Experts
Do you own a building with a flat or gently sloped roof? Is it located in an area that gets a lot of rain? Do you ever wish your building didn’t get quite so warm inside during the hot summer months? When it’s time to get a new roof, you should consider the many benefits of torch-on roofing.
Torch-on roofing (also known as torch-down roofing, asphalt roll roofing, or rubberized asphalt) protects your home and business from the elements better than any other material out there. It’s a very cost-efficient way to block heat, weather, and UV rays, and can last 20 years or more. But it’s no DIY project—Torch-On Roofing requires a very skilled set of hands to install and repair.
This type of roofing provides excellent protection from the elements, blocking heat, rain, and ultraviolet rays more efficiently than almost any other roofing material you can find. Due to its durability, it’s also a very cost-effective roofing material—a properly installed torch-on roof can last for more than 25 years.
Installing a torch-on roof on your house or commercial building doesn’t take a long time, but it is a specialized process that requires skill and expertise to do it correctly. Thankfully, Canuck Roofing has just the hands to do it. Canuck Roofing has more than 25 years of experience installing torch-on roofs for home and business owners in Vancouver, West & North Vancouver, Richmond, Burnaby, Surrey and beyond.

Advantages of Torch-on roofs:
One main benefit of torch-on roofing is durability. Torch-on roofs can last 25+ years when installed correctly and have yearly maintenance checks completed. They’re also highly resistant to rain and other damaging weather, rot, pests, and falling debris. Torch-on roofing is often a wise choice for buildings in the wet climate around the Vancouver area.
Heat and UV Resistance
Some lighter coloured torch-on roofs reflect UV rays, which helps to keep your indoor temperatures cool (especially during a heatwave). This will help to save on air conditioning costs and make your property more energy efficient. In addition, there are torch-on products which can achieve a LEED credit.
Tar-and-gravel roofs can have quite an odor, often requiring residents to leave their home while the roof is being applied. Torch-on roofs do not require a hot tar kettle on the ground, which means occupants will rarely have to leave a property during application.
Torch-on roofs are completely sealed off, making them totally waterproof. This is hugely beneficial when it comes to preventing leaks, even during the biggest storms.
Since torch-on roofs are low maintenance and highly weather resistant, they’re a very cost-effective option for property owners. The initial investment might be slightly more expensive than traditional shingles, but the long-term benefits will more than make up for it.
Modifications, such as installing a skylight, can be easily done to your torch-on roof without much trouble at all.
In addition to your roof, you can install torch-on roof membranes to your foundation or decks as well. Since the material is so durable, you can install decking over your finished product without a problem.
