Among low-slope roofing, asphalt roofing is the most common. Built-up roofing in particular was developed approximately 200 year ago. It's contemporary counterpart, modified bitumen roofing, was developed in the early 1970s. Both offer a handful of advantages.
First of all, asphalt roofing is long lasting, often exceeding service life, which ranges from 15-25 years. Additionally, maintenance is typically easy and economical. Other advantages of asphalt roofing include easy installation, superior water resistance and limited movement paired with high tensile strength.
Castle Roofing And Construction create a built-up roof by covering alternative layers of roofing felt and hot-mapped asphalt with a layer of gravel. A modified bitumen roof covering is typically composed of a factory-fabricated composite sheet consisting of copolymer-modified bitumen, and is typically reinforced with polyester and/or fiberglass.
