Time-tested torch on felt flat roofing
Felt and bitumen flat roofing systems have been in use for centuries and with good reason. This traditional method and material provide excellent waterproofing while being relatively inexpensive to install. This is ideal for the homeowner who is on a tight budget.
Despite its early origins, the materials, methods and technologies used in felt and bitumen roofing is constantly evolving and there has been much improvement in these types of roof, particularly over the last 20 years.
Torch-on felt is applied using a propane torch with the bitumen forming the adhesive that sticks the felt to the substrate. Unlike previous methods which required hot bitumen to be applied on site, torch-on felt is completely safe with no risk to your family members or pets.
