A modified torch down roof is almost always used on a commercial property with a flat roof. The materials for a modified torch down roof are often comprised of a rubber and vinyl combination. This combination of materials makes the top of the roof waterproof and very strong. Unlike it’s less-expensive cousin, E.P.D.M., modified torch down roofs tend to last longer and not need frequent repairs.
With modified torch down roofs, the seams are adhered together with heat instead of adhesives. Many adhesives degrade in the sun, leaving a roof vulnerable to leaks. With the seams in modified torch down roofs, however, you don’t have to worry about leaking roofs or damaged adhesives since the seams are sealed other ways!
