Modified Bitumen Flat Roofs

If you’re in the market for a new flat roof, polymer modified bitumen is an excellent option to consider. This type of flat roofing system combines the best of both worlds, offering the durability and longevity of asphalt with the flexibility and strength of synthetic membranes.

Modified bitumen flat roofing is a popular choice among homeowners and commercial property owners for its durability and versatility. This roofing system is typically made from the fusion of two or more rolls of specific roofing material with the base sheet being made of bitumen and the cap sheet being made with at least one reinforcing polymer modifiers, such as polyester or fiberglass. The unrolled layers are then fused via either a hot or cold method depending upon which materials are being used. This combination creates a strong and flexible roofing membrane that can withstand harsh weather conditions and last for many years.

  • Modified bitumen is one of the most durable flat roofing materials available. Unlike traditional asphalt roofing, which can become brittle and crack over time, Mod Bit is designed to withstand the elements and remain flexible for many years. Since it has the innate ability to expand and contract, it can withstand extreme weather conditions, including high winds, heavy rain, snow, hail, and extreme temperatures, such as hot summers and cold winters.
  • Likewise, since it is designed to reflect sunlight, it will help keep your roof cool in the summer months. Not only will that lower your utility bills, but your roof won’t become overheated, which can lead to damage over time. Additionally, Mod Bit is resistant to UV rays, which means it will not deteriorate or fade as quickly as other roofing materials.
  • Another feature of mod bit is that it is highly waterproof. The asphalt component creates a fantastic watertight barrier that prevents any leaks from ever happening and damaging the interior of the building.
  • This flat roof style is known for its longevity and has a lifespan of around 20-25 years, which is longer than other flat roofing materials. Not only will this longevity lower the impact on landfills, but since it is made from recycled materials, its environmental impact is reduced even further. Additionally, the system is relatively easy to install, which can save homeowners and property owners money on labor costs.
  • Another advantage of modified bitumen is its flexibility. This material can be applied in a variety of ways, including using a torch or hot air to melt the material, or using self-adhesive backing. This means that it can be applied to a wide variety of surfaces, including metal, concrete, and wood.
  • These roofs also feature low maintenance requirements. Unlike other flat roofing materials, such as rubber or PVC, a polymer-modified bitumen roof does not require regular cleaning or maintenance, which means that homeowners can spend more time enjoying their homes and less time worrying about their roofs. Additionally, Mod Bit is also resistant to moss and algae growth, which means that it will not become discolored or unsightly over time. Likewise, it has a high resistance to UV rays, which means that it will not deteriorate or lose its color over time from sun exposure as well.

While there are many benefits to using a flat roofing system, there are a few disadvantages to consider. One of the main disadvantages is that it can be more expensive than other flat roofing materials, such as rubber or PVC. Additionally, the material is not as flexible as other roofing materials such as TPO, which means that it may not be suitable for certain roofing designs or shapes.

Another disadvantage of mod bit is that it can be more difficult to repair than the other options. If there is damage to the roof, it may need to be completely replaced, which can be costly. Additionally, it is not as fire-resistant as other roofing materials, which could be a concern for some homeowners and property owners in fire-prone areas.
