Roof Shinglas

Roof installation of the soft tile

  • To cover the roofs of shingles usedlaminate based on glass fiber. The material has high strength properties, it is further coated on top of two layers of modified bitumen.
  • Arranging the roof of the soft tile, you canupdate the whole design of the house due to the color coating solutions. Microgranules cover the top layer of a soft roof Shinglas simultaneously allow the painted surface in any color and make the most durable material. At the moment, there are more than 25 colors options.
  • On the bottom layer of bitumen applied "glue" -bitumen-polymer mass, it has a self-adhesive feature, the silicone layer protects the film until sticking. At the time of installation of shingles film is removed and the sheets are glued overlapped on each other, to the base plates nailed roofing nails.

Benefits of shingles

  • Shingles - ensures sealing of the roof with the help of modern technologies of production materials.
  • For the roofing of the soft tile you do not require the use of special equipment.
  • Roof Shinglas suitable for roof installation in new buildings and for the repair of roofs in old houses
  • Thanks to its simple mounting scheme, the mother of roofing spent economically without a large number of waste.
