How to properly lay the roofing material on the roof: what to take into account

An integral part of any structure is the roof. Regardless of the structure, it is common for any creation to lose their characteristics and not to cope with their task. Whatever type of coating is applied, each of the possible has a limited service time. We will not talk about the advantages and disadvantages of the structures and types of roofs, I would like to talk a little about the replacement of coating based on roofing material.

Ruberoid is a very common building material with waterproofing properties. His capabilities made him a bestseller among the rapidly built buildings. When the facades of the building have already been installed and instead of slate and tiles, preference fell to roofing material, you should get acquainted with the basic principles of its maintenance.

First we get acquainted with the labeling of products. The first letter “p”, respectively, means that this is a roofing riverbed. The value of the second symbol should be paid special attention, since it characterizes the properties of the material. The symbol “P” omenses the lining type laid down by the lower layer, and “K”- roofing, more rigid and used for the upper layers.

You can lay the roofing material on concrete floor slabs and wooden bars. The corner of the roof roll and the adjacent buildings affect the amount of layers of the layered material, which is smaller for a steeper slope. This material is plastic, but it is afraid of punctures, which is why it is worth leaving all the flaws of the base, and then process it with a primer. Laying is carried out on a special bitumen lubricant in an arbitrary direction with respect to the bevel, and the subsequent layer should lie perpendicular to the lower. Do not allow the formation of air bubbles under the coating. Remove them in time. It is recommended to cover the top layer with bitumen lubricant and sprinkled with small gravel or sand.
