 How is commercial bitumen roofing produced?

      Single coat bituminous roofs have been produced by heating tar until it becomes viscous and then adding aggregate (stone) to produce what is called hot mix asphalt (HMA). The aggregate may be mixed directly into the warm asphalt, producing sticky top coats that adhere to the existing roof deck and create a new waterproof membrane over which additional materials can be added like slates or tiles or membranes for waterproofing around doors and windows.

     Other, non-asphalt based coatings are also available. They have similar properties to asphalt and are suitable for use in cold applied systems such as liquid roofs. Like hot mix asphalt, the aggregates in these products are mixed with the sticky material at high temperatures during manufacturing, producing a low density coating which will not support loads on its own but must be supported by other roofing materials. These types of coatings can also be used in warm systems like hot roof applications or sprayed using specialized equipment on top of an existing built up type of roof (underlayment).
     The driving force behind single layer bituminous roofs is cost effectiveness and versatility in where they may be installed. The process involves laying down one layer of material and then applying another layer on top. In doing so, the process allows building owners to cover old roofs with a new membrane that may be more functional or aesthetically desirable, without needing to replace the entire roof structure.

     In terms of commercial buildings, this type of roofing is popular primarily due to cost control as it can provide many years of service in an affordable manner. Certain applications like built up hot asphalt are considered long-lasting and resistant to fire or other damage caused by common hazards such as high winds and storms. Another positive feature is the amount of time these types of products require for installation. Most roofs can be covered over during one work day when installed correctly, allowing maximum productivity from employees working at construction sites which often do not have a large amount of time to spare.

     Commercial roofing bitumen products have been used by many industries including retailers, manufacturers, medical facilities, educational institutions and government buildings. They are also popular among the United States armed forces as they can withstand extreme heat and stress caused from high winds or heavy rain.

     Single layer bituminous roofs must be installed carefully in order to ensure quality standards are met by all parties involved in construction processes. Proper planning is crucial when determining how much material will be needed for a particular project and how long installation should take as well as making sure that the proper equipment is available before beginning work on new roof structures. It is also important to check local building codes for any applicable regulations surrounding single layer commercial bituminous roof installations.
