Torch On

Torch on Roofing Services Coquitlam

Torch-on roofing is a popular roofing method that is typically used on low-angled and flat-shaped roofs. A torch-on roof consists of two layers of modified bitumen membrane that are approximately 3-4 mm. thick. The base layer is mechanically secured with plates or attached to the substrate with adhesive. The cap layer is similarly composed, but it often has a granulated surface to provide protection from the elements. The top surface of the base layer and the bottom surface of the cap layer have a thermos-fusible surface, which means that they can be thermally merged together (often done by melting the layers with a propane torch)— hence the term “torch-on roofing”. These roofs are very durable, require low maintenance and generally have a lifecycle of 20-25 years. Mountain West Roofing partners with the best torch-on roofing manufacturers to provide the best products to suit your needs.

Benefits of Torch-On Roofing

The major advantage of torch-on roofing is its durability. The roof is water proof, which means it keeps moisture from invading the interior of the home. Its durability will help to keep maintenance costs low throughout the lifecycle of the roof. The fact that the roof seals in heat, while also preventing moisture from entering the home, can help to reduce energy usage. A roof that is lightweight, resistant to harsh weather, and able to withstand impact is an asset for any property.

Architectural Sheet Metal

New Metal Roof in Coquitlam

The combination of robust durability, eye-catching aesthetics and supreme security makes metal roofing an incredibly attractive option for your home. Opting for a metal roof can be an investment that can easily pay for itself over time. That’s because metal roofs are designed to last longer than the average architectural shingle, shake and tile roof. Metal roofs are protective against harsh weather, and are immune to cracks, discoloration and rust.

The Advantages of Metal Roofs

Metal Roofs can last 50+ years. In fact, it’s not impossible that a metal roof can outlast the home. You won’t have to worry about replacing your roof every 15-20 years.

Metal Roofs are durable. Rainstorms in B.C. can get rough, and your roof is often your first, and most important, line of defense against the elements. Metal roofs are designed to withstand gusty winds, punishing rainfall, and heavy trees and debris. Metal roofs are also resistant to fire.

Metal Roofs are cost-friendly. Roofs made of other materials are prone to damage, which makes maintenance necessary and the need for a full replacement more likely. Metal roofs, on the other hand, are damage resistant. And though the upfront cost may be more than an architectural shingle roof, you may very well save more money in the long run. A metal roof can also make you eligible for a homeowner’s insurance discount.

Metal roofs are environmentally friendly. Installing a metal roof can be an eco-friendly decision. Metal reflects heat, which can make your home cooler in the summer months. This means that your AC won’t have to work overtime to cool your home. Reducing your energy usage will lower your electricity bill. This is another reason why a metal roof can be such a great investment.

Roof Repair/ Maintenance

Roof Repair and Maintenance in Coquitlam

Many of the most common roofing issues can be avoided with consistent checkups and maintenance. Stopping leaks and repairing broken or missing shingles can preserve the life of your roof, which can help reduce the need for a full-on roof replacement. If you properly care for your roof, your maintenance costs will be reduced dramatically throughout the years. A complete inspection of your roof, along with a clear diagnosis of any problems and how to fix them, can give you peace of mind. At Mountain West Roofing, we believe that prevention is the best cure. Don’t allow a small problem to become a larger one due to negligence. Being proactive can extend the lifespan of your roofing structure for many years.


We assess the state of your current roof and look for problems. If you notice damp spots on your interior ceilings, missing or damaged shingles, or rotted areas on the underside of your roof, you shouldn’t hesitate to call for a thorough roof inspection. Even the smallest problem can balloon into a large, costly issue in the future. The best way to protect the integrity of your home is to immediately assess any damages and quickly have them fixed.

Preventative Maintenance

At Mountain West Roofing, we have a simple approach: We identify the small problems before they develop into large, expensive problems. A costly roof replacement can be avoidable if the roof is consistently maintained.

Our maintenance package includes cleaning the roof to get rid of debris. We repair and replace any broken or missing shingles. We seal any water leaks, which can prevent damage to the interior of the home.

Gutter Cleaning

Your gutter system is an integral part in keeping your home functional and secure. Clear gutters funnel excess water away from the vulnerable areas of your roof. These gutters can easily be clogged with leaves and debris, which can cause roof leaks, siding rot, erosion, foundation seepage and an increase in pest infestation. Our team can thoroughly clean your gutters so that excess water flows as it’s intended.

Moss/Algae Removal

Tree debris, roadway dust, chimney soot and other elements can create unwanted problems, like moss and algae, which causes roof tile discoloration and degradation to the roof structure. Our experienced team can remove the unsightly buildup of moss and algae.

Emergency Repairs

When harsh weather or some unexpected circumstance hits, your roof may take the brunt of the damage, leaving your home vulnerable. In times like these, you need a roofing company that can quickly spring to action. Mountain West Roofing will dispatch qualified technicians and specialists who can assess the damage, meet with your insurance adjuster, and provide repair and restoration services.
