Modified Bitumen Roofing Systems
Let’s explore the advantages and disadvantages of this flat roof type so that you can make the best decision for your property.
How Does This System Work?
This cutting-edge roofing solution originated in Europe in the 1960s. It is a single-ply system crafted from asphalt, infused with polymers, and strengthened with fiberglass and/or polyester. The unique layering enhances its performance, providing exceptional advantages that set it apart from other roofing systems.
Base Sheet: The bottom layer provides a stable foundation for the roof.
Modified Bitumen Membrane: The main layer is asphalt modified with polymers, enhancing its durability and flexibility.
Reinforcement Layer: Typically made of fiberglass or polyester, this layer adds strength and tear resistance.
Surfacing Layer: The topmost layer can be granulated or smooth, providing additional protection.
Cap Sheet: An optional layer that can be added for extra protection and aesthetic appeal, available in different colors and styles.
Benefits of Modified Bitumen Roofing
Leak Resistance: With its cohesive installation, the tight and seamless connections between the sheets prevent leaks.
Weather Resistance: Lighter colors and reflective top coatings make it resistant to the sun’s radiation, and the layered composition creates wind, rain, and hail resistance.
Style Options: Granules on the cap sheets can be customized to match any shingle color.
Easy Installation and Repair: Conveniently rolled sheets are easily installed on top of a base sheet membrane. In case of damage, efficient repairs can be made using bitumen patches.
