Bitumen Roofing FAQs

What is bitumen roofing, and why should I consider it for my roof?

Bitumen roofing is a type of roofing material that is highly durable and resistant to harsh weather conditions, making it an excellent choice for many homeowners. It is made from a mixture of bitumen (a petroleum-based material) and various reinforcements, such as fibreglass or polyester. Bitumen roofs are known for their longevity, energy efficiency, and waterproofing capabilities.

How long does a bitumen roof typically last?

The lifespan of a bitumen roof can vary depending on various factors, such as the quality of installation, maintenance, and environmental conditions. However, on average, a properly installed and well-maintained bitumen roof can last 20 years or more. Regular inspections and maintenance can help extend its lifespan even further.

Is bitumen roofing suitable for all types of buildings?

Bitumen roofing is versatile and can be used for a wide range of buildings, including residential homes, commercial buildings, and industrial structures. It is particularly well-suited for flat or low-sloped roofs. The flexibility and durability of bitumen allow it to adapt to different architectural designs and provide reliable protection.

Are there different types of bitumen roofing systems available?
