Benefits of Asphalt Roofing:
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.
J.J. Landerman Roofing contractors 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. J.J. Landerman roofing contractors install modified bitumen roofing in one or more piles. If you are interested in an asphalt roof in the greater Connecticut area, contact us today to learn more!
