What is Modified Bitumen in Commercial Roofing?

Modified bitumen roofing has become a popular choice for commercial buildings with flat or low slope roofs due to its durability, flexibility, and ease of installation. At Tesson Roofing, we are proud to be a trusted roofing company in the St. Louis area, offering expert installation of modified bitumen and other roofing solutions tailored to meet the needs of commercial properties.

Understanding Modified Bitumen Roofing

1. Composition and Structure

Modified bitumen roofing consists of asphalt-based sheets that are reinforced with modifiers such as APP (Atactic Polypropylene) or SBS (Styrene-Butadiene-Styrene). These modifiers enhance the durability, flexibility, and performance of the roofing membrane.

2. Installation Methods

Modified bitumen roofing can be installed using various methods, including heat welding, cold adhesive, or self-adhered applications. This versatility allows for seamless installation on different types of commercial roofs, ensuring a watertight seal.

3. Benefits of Modified Bitumen Roofing

– Durability

Modified bitumen roofs are highly durable and can withstand extreme weather conditions, including high winds, hail, and fluctuations in temperature. They offer excellent puncture resistance and are less prone to cracking compared to traditional asphalt roofs.

– Flexibility

The flexibility of modified bitumen membranes allows them to expand and contract with temperature changes without compromising their integrity. This flexibility helps prevent leaks and extends the lifespan of the roof.

– Ease of Maintenance

Modified bitumen roofs are relatively low-maintenance, requiring periodic inspections and minor repairs. Routine maintenance helps prolong the life of the roof and ensures optimal performance throughout the year.
