Asphalt Roofing London
Asphalt, also referred to as bitumen and ashefelt, is a by product of the distillation of crude oil. Asphalt is without a doubt the most common type of flat roof covering. In constant use as a waterproofing product across the world since the third millennium, it really has been synonymous with flat roofing in the United Kingdom for many of years.
Problems With Asphalt Roofs
By far the main disadvantages of asphalt flat roofs is their susceptibility to wear and tear because of the the hugely variable climate conditions that we have in the UK. Asphalt is notably at risk of the heating and cooling results of the sun. That is why it is essential that asphalt flat roofs are made with great care and finished with a final layer that can help to reflect, and help to lower the effect, of the sun’s rays.
This is frequently done by implementing a layer of stones over the finished flat roof; it can also be accomplished with the applying of a final coat of solar reflective paint. This may not be always carried out, encouraging speedy wear of the asphalt covering resulting in premature degeneration of the flat roof and leading to water damage.
