Towson Roofing Pros Offers Torch Down Roofing on Parapet Wall in Parkville MD

Towson Roofing Pros, a licensed and insured roofer in Parkville, MD is offering torch down roofing on a parapet wall. A parapet is a barrier that is an upward extension of the wall at the roof edge for the purpose of serving as a guard rail to decrease wind loads on the roof and to hide equipment on the rooftop. The installation of torch down roofing requires the use of a propane torch to apply heat to the roofing material, which is usually modified bitumen that melts and adheres to the underlying surface, thus providing a roofing surface that is sealed from water. This provides an extra layer of protection for the parapet wall.

To install torch down roofing on a parapet wall of a commercial building, the roofing material has to go over the upper edge of the parapet to ensure there is sufficient overlap with the cant strip on the roof deck. Torch down roofing will also require regular inspection for any indications of wear and tear. Torch down roofing offers several benefits, such as: water resistance, flexibility and durability, energy efficiency, lifespan that is longer compared to some other types of flat roof systems, fire resistance, less harmful fumes, and easy repairs. However, it is important to remember that torch down roofing seams may fail and result into roof leaks. It is also not resistant to tears and scuffs, which is why regular maintenance inspections and repair is important. This can be provided by Towson Roofing Pros.

This will prevent you from being liable for any injuries or accidents that may occur during the project. You should also check if the commercial roof contractor you are considering has workers' compensation coverage. This is a must in most states and can protect you from lawsuits if an employee is injured while working at your premises.
