Roll roofing is composition sheet roofing that is manufactured in rolls, and laid on a roof in overlapping strips. Roll roofing materials can be applied as most forms of sheathing, including underlayment and shingling, due to its availability in a wide range of materials. Some roll roofing materials include asphalt, asphalt saturated organic felt (which can be standard or specification felt), SBS modified, re-enforced fiber-glass, granulated roll roofing, and more. Often materials are mixed in order to enhance roll roofing performance and durability qualities. Some of these considerations comprise flexibility, water absorption, tear resistance, adhesion, thermal stability, and slip resistance. Asphalt roll roofing is the most commonly used roll roofing material, yet is suitable to steep roofing applications. Fiberglass roll roofing is appropriate for low sloped roll roofing applications, while modified bitumen is used on almost all roofing types.
Roll roofing can be most beneficial with regards to time and money, as roll roofing installation is simpler and quicker than other roofing installation methods. This is because the roll roofing material can be bought and cut according to the required sizes, and installed by simply rolling out the material onto the roofing surface. However, installing roll roofing should be executed only by a professional roofer, as if done incorrectly, the roof may not be fully waterproofed.
