    Ben and Eli were great to work with. When we had our first consultation, they were super informative and helpful in helping us decide on the right type of roof for solar. They even offered to inspect the roof after the solar is installed … More to ensure that nothing has damaged their existing work.
    Timing of installation was on schedule and was done sooner than we thought. Seamless experience. Highly recommend them!

    Ben is wonderful. Honest, knowledgable and patient with those of us who have never installed a new roof before. He answered all our questions and reviewed in detail what the different methods, materials and options were, I appreciated the … More education and there was no doubt choosing Equinox was the right choice for us. Pricing was fair and clear, permitting and final inspection were handled without my involvement.
    On site, the crew was polite, super hard working and kept the area/sidewalks clean multiple times throughout the day to ensure my neighbors could pass safely. The roof looks beautiful!

    We met with four or five roofing contractors and Ben was the only one who took the time to explain the various roofing methods and materials and provided a competitive quote to boot. I appreciated the level of communication and flexibility … More during the project, which was stressful on my part as I was coordinating multiple contractors. Ben was accommodating and easy to work with, even when we encountered surprises requiring more work (and more budget). The crew was prompt and pleasant and they cleaned up after themselves when work was complete. Ben also made a point to meet with me and walk the roof and answer my questions when it was all said and done. I highly recommend Ben and Equinox for your next roofing project!

Torch Down Commercial Roofers

Torch down commercial roofers San Francisco
If your Bay Area commercial roof suffers from leaks, a torch down commercial roof will fix the problem. Torch-down commercial roofs use different modified bitumen or PVC layers to cover your roof. Once placed on your roof, these layers are melted on so that they create the ultimate waterproof barrier. Torch-down roofs are great for flat and low-slope commercial roofs. Take a look at some of the other benefits you’ll get from a newly installed torch down roof.

Leak Resistant

Having a melted membrane on top of your commercial roof creates an airtight seal, which is one great way to prevent roof leaks. Self-adhesives used during the installation of other flat roofs can sometimes become loose or wear off, whereas a torch-down roof will last for quite a while.

High-End Protection/Insulation

The materials used for a torch-down roof are lightweight, and when combined with the air-tight seal created from the blow torch process, you can expect A+ insulation. A torch-down modified bitumen or PVC commercial roof will also do a great job reflecting the typical UV rays we experience daily living in Northern California.

Fire Resistant

Owning a commercial property in the Bay Area with a commercial roof that is fire resistant is a must. Torch-down roofs are highly fire-resistant, so they’ll do a great job protecting your property in any emergencies.

Common Torch-Down Roofing Issues

Leaky Roof

Some torch-down commercial flat roofs suffer from leaks when water is allowed to gather and pond. As these puddles grow on your torch-down commercial roof, they’ll begin to penetrate the interior of your commercial roof, leading to significant issues.

Potential Fire Hazard

Your Bay Area commercial roofer will need to utilize propane torches to melt the outer membrane to install a torch-down commercial roof. This technique should only be used by well-trained commercial roofers such as ours at Equinox Roofing.
