19 Dec What Is A Modified Bitumen Roofing System?
Modified Bitumen roofing is an asphalt-based option. It is best suited for buildings with a flat or low-slope roof. They date back to the mid-1960s when they were first developed in Europe. They arrived in North America in 1975 and have been immensely popular since then, thanks to the many benefits they provide.
Why Modified Bitumen Roofing Systems Are Important
Modified Bitumen Roof Systems offer a number of layers of protection, which is a major advantage over other single-ply roofing options.
The modified bitumen plies are also manufactured in a factory that includes all the waterproofing components of asphalt embedded sheets. This is in contrast to traditional tar-and-gravel built up roofs. This results in more uniform waterproof layers that are stronger and more stable against UV rays. It is also faster and easier to install than traditional built-up roofing.
These protection layers are worth every penny, even if they’re taken separately. When combined in a 2-3-ply roofing system, you get a system with a proven track record that is unmatched anywhere else.
This is the perfect storm. A Modified Bitumen Roofing system not only offers superior waterproofing, but also has a high tensile and low life-cycle costs. This is why Modified Bitumen roof systems are so popular.
