Why Torch On Roofing?

Improve Your Roof’s Performance with the Vancouver Torch-On Roofing Experts

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. Thankfully, Canuck Roofing has just the hands to do it.

Home and business owners across Vancouver’s lower mainland (Vancouver, Burnaby, Richmond, Coquitlam, Surrey, and beyond) have trusted Canuck Roofing for the past 25 years to install and maintain a solid roof over their head.


Advantages of Torch-on roofing:

When it comes to choosing the right roof for your home, a lot of factors come into play—including geographic location and the shape of your roof. If you have a flat or low-sloped roof, here are some benefits to having torch-on roofing for your home.


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.


Heat Protection:
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.


Less Odor:
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.


Cost Effective:
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.


Easy Modifications:
Modifications, such as installing a skylight, can be easily done to your torch-on roof without much trouble at all.


Additional Installation:
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.
