As an expert in the roofing industry, it’s essential to stay up-to-date utilizing the highest-quality products and most efficient roofing methods to complete your client’s projects. That’s where EcoTorch, a new and innovative torch-applied membrane, proves advantageous.
Unlike APP and other SBS modified bitumen membranes, EcoTorch is proving to be the top ecologically-friendly roofing material on the market.
Designed with the environment in mind, EcoTorch helps you successfully go green with your flashing, new roofing, and re-roofing applications.
EcoTorch is comprised of recycled tire rubber, each roll using approximately one half of a passenger tire. By allowing this accumulated rubber to serve another purpose, and an effective one at that, we are able to keep tires from piling up in a landfill.
Not only is this membrane utilizing recycled rubber material, the application process uses an innovative torch-down system that requires less heat and propane creating a more energy-efficient installation for you and your team.
This environmentally-friendly roofing option offers several features that have made it a superior alternative to APP torch-applied roofing systems:
- Better weather resistance, proving more flexible in cooler weather (even sub-freezing temps!)
- Exceptional granule embedment
- Improved end lap and metal adhesion
- No retraining necessary
- Fewer call-backs and liability issues
This form of recycled roofing is available in eight different shingle blends/solid colors, so there’s no compromising your client’s overall curb appeal.
Take the more energy-efficient approach when it comes to your next roofing project and utilize the EcoTorch SBS roofing membrane.
