What type of roof covering is this?

Hi everyone,

I’m not too familiar with flat roofing. Would anyone be able to tell me what type of covering this is? I think its modified bitumen.
There’s some cracking. What would your remaining life estimate be?

Thanks in advance!

Looks like modified bitumen that has been coated in something.

Thank you. I appreciate it.

With all that alligatoring and standing water and possible coating, it is a leak waiting to happen.

Refer it out to a qualified roofing contractor. IMHO…YMMV


Looks like one that needs to be replaced soon from that partial patch.

Thank you very much guys!

Don’t ever give a remaining lifespan.
And… I wouldn’t identify it if I didn’t know for sure. Identify problems and leave it at that. Mention any evidence of leaks. If there are none… say so.
Describe what you see and don’t speculate on future conditions.

Thank you Kenton, appreciate it!
