Known to be tough and durable modified bitumen roofing systems are designed to withstand harsh weather conditions.   These membrane roofs were first developed and utilized in Europe in the 1960′s then brought over to the US market in the 1970′s and are found on many commercial and industrial buildings throughout the US.

Depending on our customer’s needs modified bitumen roof systems may be installed by the torch-application method. “hot-mopped” like built up roof systems or applied with adhesives. Some modified bitumen roof manufactures have also introduced self-adhering sheets. which cause the roofing membrane to adhere itself as it is rolled into place. Modified Bitumen roofing systems create watertight barriers that perform for many years at a time due to the multiple layers.  When built-up, these layers of bitumen exhibit exceptional resistance to conductivity of heat between the exterior and interior of the building.  This generates noticeable reduction in heating and cooling costs.  The thermoplastic polymers used in the modified bitumen make it more fire resistant as well.

The technology employed in creating this roofing system makes it affordable and easy to generate as well.  It is suitable for most low sloped applications and may be used for roof system flashings including wall treatments, base flashings and field flashings. All Modified bitumen roofing systems are not the same. If your commercial or industrial roofing system is in need of repair, seek a specialist’s opinion.
