Cap sheet roofs have layers of material glued together with hot asphalt, with a roll of mineral surface glued with asphalt to the top instead of gravel.
The cap sheet is used to provide a watertight surface and protection and is one of the most important components of a building providing protection and comfort to its occupants.The cap sheets are surfaced with a bright-white, highly reflective granule that’s both durable and energy efficient. The granule mitigates solar heat and provides additional comfort to the interiors of the buildings it protects.
Base Sheet is a premium roofing base sheet constructed with a strong glass mat that is coated on both sides to ensure a closed-sheet design to prevent asphalt bleed-through. The sealed sheet also serves as an effective flame retarder for the application of torch-applied modified bitumen membranes.
A roofing base sheet is the bottom waterproofing layer on a multilayer roofing membrane system. … The base sheet provides waterproofing and a top surface that can bond with the cap sheet
Torch down roofing
(sometimes referred to as “torch on” roofing) is so named because it requires an open-flame propane torch. In this installation method, sheets of modified bitumen are rolled out onto the roof, and a roofing professional uses a hand-held propane torch to heat the material and adhere it to the surface.
Water-resistant torch down roofing is an excellent choice in snowy environments. The cap sheet on a torch down roofing system has other excellent properties, including resistance to UV rays, and reflectivity to keep the building cool and energy efficient.
