Durability with Modified Bitumen Roofing
If your roofing installation takes place in a high traffic area, or it is confined to a small space and has a high service equipment density, GreenLeaf Roofing recommends you consider a modified roofing system. The modifiers in the bitumen roofing system create a flexible nature so you can have a thicker product.
Why Use Modified Bitumen Roofing?
Modified bitumen derived from asphalt roofing. The new evolution is created from a blend of asphalt and a variety of rubber modifiers and solvents, thus the naming convention of ‘modified.’
A modified bitumen roofing system is more resistant to the movement of a building. It also works better with metal-to-membrane interfaces better than a built-up roof (BUR).
Installing Modified Roofing Systems
A modified roofing system is installed in multiple layers to avoid any issues with quality. The heat application process melts the seams together to create a seal on the product. Modified bitumen roofing can also be hot-mopped, much like a conventional built-up roof.
More recently, cold-applied adhesive and self-adhesive membranes have come into play, allowing for a quicker set and, in many applications, a higher quality installation.
