These are examples of a 90 lb. granulated cap sheet known in the industry as torch-down roofing. This material was created for flat roof applications or very low slope roof systems that don’t have the required 4 and 12 pitch to install a shingle or a tile product. This product is ideal for flat roof systems and in the 20 years of TR Construction’s existence, we have found that most flat roof hot mop rock systems are being replaced by this granulated cap sheet system.
We prefer the modified torch-down system over the rock and tar system because the biggest problem we find with a hot mop tar systems with gravel on top is what happens over time is the gravel moves. Wind, rain, vibration, cats using the gravel as kitty litter, cable wires on top of the roof system which are moving and move gravel, are exposing areas of the membrane which decrease the life expectancy of the roof system. These gravel rock roof systems are throughout San Diego on older homes. With the modified torch-down cap sheet; the embedded granules on the cap sheet protect the membrane from decreased life expectancy. Furthermore, a granulated cap sheet application is simply an easier system to track and fix potential leaks that might occur. The life expectancy on a torch-down product is 12 years. With our proper installation of this product you should have a sound flat roof system for over 12 years.
A large percentage of our projects are also from repeat customers who know they can trust us with whatever their home needs.
Each job is assigned a dedicated office coordinator who is familiar with your project, responsible for finding out the answers to your questions, and relaying any information to the field. And since everything is done in-house, you don’t have to worry about coordinating with several different companies. Phone messages are even monitored over the weekend in case any emergencies come up.
It is no wonder that our fabulous office staff is so widely praised in our reviews.
