When it Comes to Roofing, More Layers = Fewer Headaches

If one layer is good, aren’t more layers better? That’s what the Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association (ARMA) believe. They install built-up roofing systems that use layers of bitumen and bitumen saturated felts with asphalt. This union creates a monolithic layer that improves durability, increases energy efficiency, and makes roofs safer.

For example, multi-ply, built-up roofing adds stability to your roof so you don’t have to worry about the deterioration of high traffic areas or the placement of solar panels and mechanical systems. Single layer roofs require sacrificial layers for these areas that often prove redundant and ineffective.

To help property owners learn more about multi-ply, built-up roofing, the Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association (ARMA) has easily accessible information on their website. New material is added regularly.
