Asphalt Roofing London
Asphalt, also identified as bitumen, is a by product of the distillation of crude oil. Asphalt is without question the most widely known type of flat roof covering. In constant use as a waterproofing product worldwide since the third millennium BCE, it is synonymous with flat roofing in the united kingdom for 100s of years.
Problems With Asphalt Roofs
Undoubtedly one of the fundamental issues with asphalt flat roofs is their susceptibility to wear and tear due to the massively variable climate conditions that we have in the united kingdom. Asphalt is predominantly susceptible to the heating and cooling consequences of the sun. For this reason it is very important that asphalt flat roofs are created with significant care and finished with a final layer that can help to reflect, and lessen the effect, of the suns rays.
This is more often than not done by implementing a layer of stones over the finished flat roof ; this may also be achieved with the application of a final coat of solar reflective paint. This may not be always carried out, encouraging quick wear of the asphalt covering contributing to premature degeneration of the flat roof.
