The membrane consists of a fibreglass reinforcing material that is placed between layers of rubberized asphalt then top coated with small ceramic stones that reflect heat, UV rays and protects from the elements.
The advantage of this type of flat roofing is its durability, clean appearance, availability of multiple colors, light weight design which is easy on structures, easily repairable and weather-resistant for the Canadian climate.
These membranes have been available for over 25 years and have evolved from a single ply application to the more commonly used two-ply system today. Prior to that, most flat roofing was done using a built-up tar and gravel roofing system which was a lot heavier on the structure, made repairs and servicing expensive, was more labor intensive and required costly commercial equipment.
This type of roofing is more commonly used in industrial applications, and the torched on membrane system is normally used in residential and commercial roofing. Torch On Roofing can be installed on decks as a base layer, in hidden gutters to replace rubber gutters, on suspended concrete slabs for water proofing, and on flat roofs. Torch On Roofing can be installed in a 1 ply system, and a 2 ply system. Premier Exterior Solutions can create a tapered slope package for your flat roof, diverting all water away from low spots due to settling and into the proper drainage area.

Commercial Roof Maintenance
Our roof maintenance programs are designed to protect your investment and maximize the life span of the roofing system. It’s too often that commercial roofing problems become apparent only after considerable damage has occurred to either the roof system, facility and/or equipment. How well a commercial roofing system performs over time depends mainly on 2 factors; installation and how roof maintenance is executed.
A commercial roof maintenance program is proactive, it can help identify problems at their early stages which can be repaired and corrected before causing major repairs. We can customize each program to be building specific, contact us for more information.
Protect Your Roof & Decrease The Need For Replacement.
Roof coatings are seamless when they are installed correctly and can provide protection, decrease the need for roof replacement, prolong the life span and are fully warrantied systems. Coatings becomes the top layer of protection for the underlying membrane while receiving the impact of infrared and UV rays, rain, hail, snow and physical damage. Using white coatings will help reflect heat and light away from the roof which in turn will make it more energy efficient and provide savings in heating and cooling costs.
