In recent years, there are many options for the installation of roofs, and the most effective of them is the laying on the roof of the soft roof, which has good heat and soundproofing indicators, as well as effective antifungal and anti -corrosion properties. You should know that laying this type of roof on the roof requires certain skills and special tools.
Soft roofs are used for cottages, private houses and for large apartment buildings. This type of roof is a big glassist processed by bitumen. Most often, a special layer of mineral granules is applied to its upper (front) side to increase the resistance of the environment. As for the lower part, the adhesive layer is applied to it, which serves the role of sealed fastening.
It is also worth noting that this type of roof plays a decorative role, and also performs the function of waterproofing, thanks to this is the popularity of the soft roof growing more and more every year. There are several types of such a roof: roller roof, bitumen tiles and membrane roofs.
This type of tile is also called shingles, roofing tiles, a hound or a piece soft roof. Bitumen tile is considered the most popular material.
Bitumen tiles are peculiar flat sheets of building material, in which beautiful patterns are cut along the edges. The basis of this building material is pressed glass and. This type of blood can withstand heavy loads, due to the fact that it is practically not subjected to deformation. Typically, bitumen tiles have such dimensions 1*0.33 meters. In addition, it can have a different shape: oval, hexagonal or triangular. Laying such a tile can be performed on roofs with domes and towers.
Before starting installation, you must definitely make sure that the surface of the roof is quite even and clean. In addition, the slope of the roof for its use should not exceed 10-12 degrees. Before its direct styling, the so -called crate is installed. The installation of the tiles should be started from the very beginning of the cornice. If there is no adhesive base on such a tile, then the material must be heated until the very beginning of melting. All rows are installed on the surface so that their seams can be clearly joined with the previous. The temperature at which the installation is carried out should not exceed + 6 degrees Celsius.
This type of roof is used on the roofs of all houses, regardless of the angle of their slope. Installation of a membrane roof can be carried out by an adhesive, mechanical or ballast method. The ballistic method is used for a flat base on the roof: the sheets of material are laid out around the perimeter, crushed stone is poured on top of it. For roofs that have a large angle of inclination, a mechanical type of installation is used, in which special fasteners are used. As for the adhesive method of laying, it is used when the roof has a fairly complex design: glue is applied to the base and canvas, after which they are very tightly connected.
Rolled roof is usually used to create a roof in brick or reinforced concrete agricultural buildings. This type of roof is made on a fiberglass basis, and this contributes to its good waterproofing. But the roll roof also has one drawback – this is vapor permeability. Laying roller roof requires the use of a burner. It is also necessary to ensure that under its influence the material does not begin to burn, but only melts, otherwise laying the roll roof will be of poor quality.
As a rule, the coating is laid on pre -prepared wooden floors. The basis must first be carefully lubricated with mastic. To try on the canvas on the roof, rolled out and left for a day before its installation. With the help of a burner or a construction hair dryer, the lower layer and the base is thoroughly warmed up and attaches to each other. The canvases must be overlapped. In this case, laying the roof is permissible only on the roof, the slope of which does not exceed 25 degrees.
And finally, if you are not sure that you can independently lay a soft roof, seek help from professional roofers who have sufficient experience in such installation.
