Peter A. Claisse, in Civil Engineering Materials, Introduction Applications. Bituminous materials are used for road construction, roofing, waterproofing, and other applications. For the main application, which is road construction, the major concerns, as with concrete, are cost and durability.   Bituminous waterproofing systems are designed to protect residential and commercial n (asphalt or coal-tar pitch) is a mixed substance made up of organic liquids that are highly sticky, viscous, and waterproof. These systems are sometimes used to construct roofs, in the form of roofing felt or roll roofing products. Bitumen, also known as asphalt, is a sticky, black and highly viscous liquid or semi-solid form of petroleum. Thanks to its waterproofing qualities, it is widely used in construction. Bituminous membranes are perfect for waterproofing roofs, basements, below .   I have ordered several books in the For Pros by Pros series. This book is just like the others in this series. It is informative, detailed and good reading. Even if you care not to apply this information as a DIY'er you will be well informed if you plan to hire a roofing company to repair or replace s:

The cost to waterproof a flat roof depends on the choice of liquid applied roof system. When estimating the cost of waterproofing a roof, the building owner or property manager must take in consideration that material cost and labor cost are both contingent on . Even if it’s the whole surface that needs waterproofing, some of Roofing Superstore’s more extensive products are easy-to-apply and are designed to be a long-term solution.
