Towson Roofing Pros Offers Advice on Installing Torch Down Roofing on A Parapet Wall



Released May 9, 2023

Towson Roofing Pros, a residential and commercial roofing contractor based in Towson, Maryland, offers advice on the best method for installing, maintaining and repairing flare roofs on parapet walls.

Flare roofs, also known as modified bitumen roofs, are a popular choice for flat or low pitched roofs due to their durability and longevity. During application, a propane torch is used to heat the roofing material to make it adhere to the underlying surface, hence the name. Aside from the roof terrace, a flared roof can also be applied to parapets to add an extra layer of protection around the edges of the roof.

“To install flare roofing on a parapet,” says the Towson Roofing Pros spokesperson, “start by measuring the material so that it goes over the top of the parapet and you still have adequate overlap with the cant strip on the.” roof terrace. We recommend 6 to 8 inches. Secure the piece at the top before attaching the side lap to the roof panel. When it comes time to add the next layer, make sure to remove the granulate on the end overlap for a smooth overlap and strong adhesion. We also recommend working in short sections at a time as installing flared roofs vertically becomes difficult with longer cuts of material.”

In order to maintain a flare roof, it is important to regularly inspect it for damage or signs of wear. The surface should be kept clean by removing any debris or leaves that may collect on the roof. Property owners can also use a low pressure pressure washer to clean the surface if needed. Finally, flare roof repair involves applying roofing cement or glue to the damaged area for small cracks or holes, while larger repairs may require replacing an entire section.
