Mastic Asphalt Roofing Build Ups

This post looks at two different types of mastic asphalt roofing build ups.  The warm roof and the inverted roof.

Mastic Asphalt Warm Roof

• A warm roof has the principle thermal insulation placed above the structural deck, but beneath the waterproofing layer.

• The roof must be laid to a minimum fall of 1:80. 1:40 is the preferred gradient.

• A separate vapour control layer is required.

• The structural deck can be concrete (in situ or precast), metal decking with continuous support or timber.

• The build-up is normally finished with UV Solar Reflective Paint or Chippings.


Inverted Roof in Mastic Asphalt

With inverted roofing the insulation is located above the roofing membrane acting as a protective layer.

• The insulation acts as protective layer to the roofing membrane.

• The structure is protective from extreme temperature in both winter and summer months. This gives a high degree of thermal stability to the system.

• There is not a requirement for a separate vapour control layer.

• Drainage falls may be omitted.

• This system is an ideal specification for insulated balcony waterproofing and rooftop terraces.
