Asphalt Roll Roofing

Asphalt roll roofing is a type of roofing material made from asphalt-saturated materials such as felt paper or fiberglass mats. It is often used in low-slope applications and is typically applied in two or more layers. The top layer is generally applied in shingle fashion and is usually covered with granules to protect it from the elements. The bottom layer is designed to provide a waterproof seal and also serves as an anchor for the top layer. The material is lightweight, easy to install, and highly durable. It is also resistant to wind, water and ultraviolet light, making it a great choice for roofs that need to stand up to the elements.

Asphalt Roll Roofing

Asphalt roll roofing is a type of roofing material that is composed of fiberglass-reinforced asphalt, which is coated with mineral granules. The material is typically used to cover flat roofs, providing a barrier to water, UV radiation and extreme temperatures. It is available in a variety of widths and weighs around 3.2 pounds per square foot. Asphalt roll roofing is generally cheaper than other types of roofing materials and is easier to install, making it a popular choice for residential and commercial properties alike. It is also highly durable and can last for up to twenty years, with proper maintenance.
