Ruberoid, slate, cor­ru­gat­ed board, met­al tiles — all these mate­ri­als were used to cov­er roofs. How­ev­er, they no longer meet mod­ern roof­ing require­ments. There­fore, they were replaced by rolled roof­ing mate­ri­als for roofs, which, in terms of their char­ac­ter­is­tics, are not infe­ri­or to more mod­ern mate­ri­als. There­fore, roll roof­ing is increas­ing­ly used in the con­struc­tion indus­try.

What to look out for

These are mate­ri­als that can be used in the repair of the roof of the house, as well as in the con­struc­tion of new roofs. Roof­ing roll mate­ri­als are used for roof water­proof­ing and for its insu­la­tion.

They are made on the basis of fiber­glass, poly­ester, fiber­glass or on the basis of bitu­men, which is coat­ed on top with a poly­mer or min­er­al chips. Their thick­ness can be from 1 to 3 mm, and the width can vary from 50 cm to 1.5 m. The length of the roll can reach 50 m, and the weight of the roll ranges from 8 to 10 kg. Due to their com­po­si­tion, they have increased water­proof­ing char­ac­ter­is­tics. They are the most pop­u­lar among rolled bitu­mi­nous mate­ri­als, as they do not require the use of com­plex mech­a­nisms and have no oper­at­ing restric­tions. Rolled roof­ing mate­ri­als are one of the cheap­est roof­ing mate­ri­als, and that is why they are wide­ly used in pri­vate con­struc­tion. Roofs made of rolled mate­ri­als can be laid on roofs with a slope of 11 to 90%. It should be borne in mind that the small­er the slope, the more durable the roof­ing mate­r­i­al should be.

Fea­tures of roll roof­ing mate­ri­als

Roll roof­ing has the fol­low­ing advan­tages:

  • are uni­ver­sal;

  • resis­tant to tem­per­a­ture extremes;

  • do not rot;

  • have high strength;

  • durable.

Roll mate­ri­als can be sin­gle-lay­er and mul­ti-lay­er. Sin­gle-lay­er roof­ing roll coat­ings are rolled roof­ing made of roof­ing felt, glas­sine, roof­ing felt and oth­er sim­i­lar mate­ri­als, and mul­ti-lay­ered ones are made of bitu­men-poly­mer and bitu­men-butyl rub­ber mate­ri­als. Roof­ing roll mate­ri­als are made on the basis of syn­thet­ic and nat­ur­al fibers, as well as on the basis of tex­tile pro­duc­tion waste.

At the same time, they have excel­lent prop­er­ties, such as sim­plic­i­ty and ease of use, instal­la­tion speed, dura­bil­i­ty, reli­a­bil­i­ty, strength, aes­thet­ics, econ­o­my, etc. Roll roof­ing is pro­duced in the form of flex­i­ble roll mate­ri­als based on bitu­men, poly­mer, poly­ester, fiber­glass or fiber­glass. Bitu­mi­nous mate­ri­als are used for soft roof­ing, they are based on bitu­men and, in some cas­es, fiber­glass.
