Built-Up Bitumen Roofing: Modified Bitumen Roofing Materials

Modified Bitumen (mod bit) roofing systems are a reliable and effective choice for flat or low slope roofs on commercial properties. This option has quickly become an industry favorite for roof installation and is an alternative to the conventional Built Up Roofing (BUR) system. At Commercial Roofing Contractor, we strengthen this hybrid material by combining asphalt membranes with polymerized rubber or plastic, resulting in a durable and flexible roofing solution. Built up bitumen roofs also apply to commercial, residential, and industrial roofing projects.

Pros of Opting for Modified Bitumen in Your Roofing Project

Property contractors are increasingly using modified bitumen roofing for a variety of reasons. Its resilience against rips and tears caused by storm damage, wind driven debris, and other factors makes it so popular. It's perfect for waterproofing during roof installation projects because it offers outstanding protection, especially when employing multi ply systems. Not to mention, a built up bitumen roof contributes to energy efficiency by significantly lowering energy costs, thanks to its high UV resistance.

Types of Modified Bitumen Membrane

When considering roof installation, it's crucial to understand why your contractor opts for a particular type of modified bitumen membrane. Choosing between Atactic Polypropylene (APP) and Styrene Butadiene Styrene (SBS) membranes is crucial. APP membranes have a plastic like quality from atactic polypropylene that improves UV ray protection and aids in efficient water runoff. On the other hand, SBS membranes remain highly elastic and flexible due to their synthetic rubber composition, making them adaptable for different installation methods.
