I have been doing some repairs around my roof deck and was wondering
if the pros have some tips. For around the edges and smaller areas I
am using the plain stuff and for the bigger areas that gets walked on
occasionally I am using the kind with the sand or whatever in it.
Not far from me, they used to (are you paying attention) have a carousel
"merry go round" with an organ and such. It was (past tense) from the 30's
or 40's. Then a couple well meaning roofers did their thing with a torch on
some roofing, and it burned down. The carousel is literally across the
street from the firehall. They could probably park in their firehall
driveway and ark a stream to the roof of the carousel.
Hint: Have a fire extinguisher handy when working with torch. Have a buddy,
and another extinguisher.

Thanks but I have all that in hand. I have been using the torch and
torchdown for a year or more. Just wondering if there were some tips
as to techniques as there are usually some pretty helpful people on
this NG. I have a hose handy at all times when using the torch. Also
the roofing itself I find acts as a flame snuffer.
This is turtle.
I don't know what veriation of the burn down roll roofing your using here
but here is what I use on Roof tops around the Commercial HVAC rooftop
systems and I never have to go back for repairs ever.
First don't use any of the granual type roll roofing. use the smooth and no
texture types and burn it down totally with no just lay downs.
I use Briar Brand Burn roll roofing stuff and no texture. If you burn it
down good and don't screw it up. It will be there when your dead and gone. I
have burned some HVAC curbs down about 20 years ago and they are still there
and don't leak. Now they also have the roof done in Briar too and that roof
has been the more than 20 years.
If you want to talk about the burn down roll roofing stuff. E-Mail me and I
will tell what I can about it. Now I don't do this for a living but just in
my hvac business and don't like to come back to repair under warrenty of
stuff. I have used a bunch of different stuff through the years and this
stuff just holds up.
