Rolled roofing

Rolled RoofingThere are many different styles and methods of covering your roof properly. While duct tape and a tarp might seem like the easiest and cheapest way to go that doesn’t mean it’s the best way to go. If an easy solution is what you’re after then a rolled roof might be the best option.

Rolled Roof vs other styles

One of the biggest advantages rolled roofing has over other roofing material is the ease of application. Like rolling out a carpet, just place on part of the roll on one end of the roof, roll it to the next, move up to the next section, repeat. Additionally compared to other roofing materials rolled roofing is generally more cost effective. While not as durable as other forms of roofing, rolled will get the job done.

General Pros and Cons of Rolled Roofing

For the most part rolled roofing is the simplest and easiest of the roofing options on the market. It’s great for adding an extra layer of protection onto the roof as well as reaching some of those hard to get at spots on a roof. However, there are some downsides to rolled roofing. For instance, it is best suited for low slope houses. Anything with too much of a slope grade will potentially cause issues if rolled is used. Another issue is that rolled is often thinner than other styles of roofing material. This means it has a far lower life span and will hold up less against stronger environmental incidents. Also rolled does not come in a lot of varieties so aesthetically speaking it might not be a viable option.

To roll or not to roll

In the end what it all boils down to what you want or need out of your roof. For instance, if you have a lower end home and just need something to keep the roof decent then rolled is perfect. If you have an older home that needs restoring then rolled isn’t where you want to go. As mentioned above, keeping in mind the location of the home can also affect whether rolled is a good idea or not. For places with moderate weather outside of rainfall, rolled would work perfectly. Places that tend to get more extreme forms of weather phenomena such as hurricanes or excessive snowfall; rolled might not give you the most bang for your buck. Knowing these factors will help you decide which direction you should go.
