What is Modified Bitumen Roofing

Modified Bitumen Roofing materials, more technically known as Polymer-Modified Bitumen, are special types of membranes used in a type of Built-Up Roof system. Like a BUR roof, special roofing sheet material is placed between layers of hot or cold bitumen, or asphalt. Modified Bitumen Roofing uses polymer sheets that have been coated in special materials like talc or sand to provide added UV protection, weight, structure, and durability to the roof.

Advantages and Limitations of Modified Bitumen Roofing

Modified Bitumen is an incredibly durable and waterproof type of roof system that can last for decades. It is also highly resistant to UV and weathering, and the sheets inside the layers can be modified (more insulation, for example) for the climate or property owner’s needs.

This type of roofing system can’t be used on a flat roof, as it needs at least a little slope. It is also a heavier type of roofing meant for sturdy structures, and installation is a delicate process that requires professional handling so certain materials don’t react to each other.

How to Install and Maintain Modified Bitumen Roofing

A modified bitumen roof system uses either hot or cold asphalt between the special coated fabric layers. Hot bitumen is applied by torch or brush, but sometimes special cold adhesives are used to apply this type of roofing material. The polymer-modified sheets come in a variety of reinforcements, thicknesses, and mineral coatings, depending on their use. Many times, smooth sheets will be used in the bottom and middle of the layers, while a sheet coated in sand or another rough coating will be used on the top to seal everything.

“Simply, they did what said they going to do, when they were going to do it, everyone was professional and they said “thank you”. We established a price and time schedule and each was adhered to. I would highly recommend this company and our sales rep. Kyla Kept us fully informed and updated. I never thought I would say this but, “I love my roof”.”

“After both Hurricane Matthew and Hurricane Irma I had roof damage, one with a leak. I called All Area Roofing and they were out the same day – gave me a very reasonable quote – and had the repairs done within 48 hours of our agreeing on a price. My property was left spotless I could hardly tell they were even there other than I could see the new shingles. I was very pleased with my experience.”
