An Introduction to Hot Melt Roofing for Commercial Properties

1/10/2018

Using the right material is crucial to your roof’s appearance, performance and longevity. And when it comes to commercial properties, one of the popular options is hot melt roofing. But what is it? When is it suitable? And what should you consider before installing hot melt roofing? This post looks at everything you need to know about hot melt roofing.

What is hot melt roofing?

Hot melt roofing is a type of roofing that uses a hot liquid to cover a roof’s surface in a single layer. It is applied to a structural deck, providing waterproof protection for the roof. Most commonly used on commercial properties, or flat roof extensions on domestic properties, hot melt roofing has a wide range of benefits:
  • Affordable – Hot melt roofing is an affordable way to cover the typically large roofs of commercial properties
  • Speed – With the right training, holt melt roofing is quick to install. That also minimises installation costs.
  • Waterproof – It provides a water-tight membrane that keeps all rainwater out of your property.
  • Durable – The membrane is also UV resistant and can withstand any temperatures, so your roof is protected all year round.
  • Flat – With hot melt roofing, it’s possible to create a roof that’s completely flat. With the right drainage, this could be useful either for appearance or to adhere to certain building regulations.
  • Long lasting – If it’s installed well, hot melt roofing can last several decades. So, it’s by no means a compromise on the quality of other roofing materials.

When is hot melt roofing suitable?

The next thing to consider is whether hot melt roofing is suitable for your commercial property. Firstly, you need a flat roof, as hot melt roofing isn’t suitable for pitched roofs. Other than that the material is highly versatile. It can even be used on existing roofs to revitalise them with a waterproof layer. Fortunately, there’s no need to worry about the time of the year as hot melt roofing can be applied in any season. The super-hot liquid can be used in temperatures well below freezing, so a winter installation is no problem. Another important consideration is the roof on which hot melt roofing is being applied. Your commercial roof needs to be able to bear the weight of the hot melt roofing, so it will need to be inspected by reliable roofing contractors before proceeding.

Leave it to the specialists

No roofing project is suitable for DIY. That’s particularly the case for hot melt, which involves materials above 150 °C. To avoid any damage to yourself or your property – and get high-quality, long-lasting results – it’s best to get professional roofing contractors with plenty of experience. DPR Roofing is a team of expert roofers, based in Wakefield. We offer a range of commercial roofing services including robust single ply membranes for longer life and better weather resistance. Whether it’s a repair, replacement or new installation, you can rely on use to provide the best results every time.Read More
