Modified Bitumen roofing, also known as mod-bit roofing, is a popular choice for commercial properties due to its exceptional durability and flexibility. It is a type of membrane roofing system that combines the time-tested characteristics of traditional BUR (Built-Up Roofing) with modern technology.
Modified Bitumen roofing is available in several forms, each offering distinct advantages for various commercial roofing needs. These include:
APP Modified Bitumen: APP (Atactic Polypropylene) Modified Bitumen roofing is known for its excellent UV resistance and flexibility. It is suitable for roofs with high foot traffic.
SBS Modified Bitumen: SBS (Styrene-Butadiene-Styrene) Modified Bitumen roofing is highly flexible and can easily adapt to temperature changes. It is ideal for buildings in regions with extreme weather conditions.
Modified Bitumen roofing offers a range of benefits, making it a compelling choice for commercial properties:
Durability: Modified Bitumen roofs have a long lifespan, often exceeding 20 years when properly maintained. They are resistant to punctures and tears, ensuring longevity.
Waterproofing: These roofs provide excellent waterproofing, preventing water leakage and associated damages to the interior of your building.
Energy Efficiency: Many Modified Bitumen roofing systems are available in cool roofing options, which can significantly reduce energy costs by reflecting sunlight and absorbing less heat.
Easy Repairs: In the event of damage, repairs are straightforward and cost-effective. Contractors can easily patch or replace damaged sections.
The installation of Modified Bitumen roofing involves several key steps:
Surface Preparation: The existing roof surface is cleaned and inspected for any repairs or modifications needed.
Adhesive Application: The base sheet is attached to the roof deck using adhesive or mechanical fasteners.
Modified Bitumen Layers: The layers of Modified Bitumen are applied, either by torching or using hot asphalt.
Seam Sealing: The seams are sealed to ensure water-tightness.
Protective Coating: A reflective coating is applied for additional protection and energy efficiency.
Final Inspection: The finished roof is thoroughly inspected to ensure quality and durability.
