What is Mastic Asphalt Roofing?

Asphalt is a black substance made using sand, gravel and pitch which is most commonly used for surfacing roads, roofs and floors. Asphalting has always been considered a specialist technique in the construction and building industry, largely due to the training required to utilise it. From a roofing perspective, the most commonly used asphalt is mastic asphalt, which originally became popular during the 1960s and remains one of the most respected materials in the industry, even 50 years after its initial use.

Uses and Advantages

Having been mastic asphalt contractors since our establishment in London, we have used mastic asphalt to solve a variety of client issues and it’s this versatility that makes the material so effective. Mastic asphalt can be used for:

  • Front entrance steps
  • Basement waterproofing
  • Flat roofs
  • Path and drive surfaces
  • Car park decks and roofs
  • Domestic and industrial flooring

This is just the tip of the iceberg, though, as with mastic asphalt your imagination really is the limit; from ornamental fish ponds to personal driveways – it is one of the most versatile building materials available.

Mastic asphalt roofing is a dominant force in the construction industry because of its proven durability and unique installation properties. The material is tough, waterproof and void-less – offering a lifespan of over fifty years whilst being recyclable, energy saving and entirely CO2 neutral.

In addition, mastic asphalt is attractive, great value for money, virtually 100% fire resistant and can be laid without needing a naked flame or compacting. Ultimately, the material is easy to apply, exceptionally versatile and proven to last.
