Mastic Asphalt

Mastic Asphalt Roofing
Mastic asphalt roofing is a seamless waterproofing covering which can be applied to many types of surfaces such as horizontal, vertical & horizontal and is suitable for roof constructions where the roof deck/timber is adequately strengthened. As mastic asphalt is in molten form when applied, it can easily be dressed around rooflights, pipes and other protrusions without any difficulty. Mastic asphalt is heated to a temperature of 210 °C (410 °F) and is spread in layers to form an impervious barrier about 20 millimetres (0.8 in) thick. It is usually laid in 2 coats on an isolating membrane of black sheathing felt. If there are any insufficient falls on the roof, the mastic asphalt can be laid to eliminate standing water. It is the ideal material for concrete, block and beam, bison beam, woodwool slab and suitably constructed timber roofs. A1MAZING Roofing Services Ltd’s experienced tradesmen have used mastic asphalt on many domestic properties, multi storey flats, factories, office buildings and schools for more than 35 years. Mastic asphalt roofing can also be overlaid on an existing sound and tested roof structure where the cost to strip up the whole roof may be too prohibitive. On completion of the roofing works and to protect the mastic asphalt from ultra violet degradation and heat build up, a solar reflective paint finish is usually applied.
