Reinforce Your Commercial Building with Home Perfect Exteriors' Modified Bitumen Roofing

Modified bitumen is a type of roofing material that is made from asphalt and modified with polymers to enhance its durability and flexibility.

General Description

Modified bitumen is a modern version of the old built up roof system, but instead of many different layers of asphalt and fabric, it’s made up of a single membrane applied on top of insulation. The roofing membrane consists of an asphalt product called bitumen mixed with various plastics and additives and reinforced with polyester and fiberglass fabrics.

Benefits of Commercial Roofing Type

  • Durability: Modified bitumen is a highly durable material that can withstand extreme temperatures and weather conditions, making it a popular choice for commercial and industrial buildings.

  • Longevity: Modified bitumen can have a longer lifespan than traditional roofing materials like asphalt shingles, which can save money on maintenance and replacement costs over time.

  • Flexibility: Modified bitumen can be installed in a variety of ways, including cold-applied, heat-welded, and self-adhering systems, making it a versatile material that can be customized to meet the specific needs of your building.

  • Waterproofing: Modified bitumen is an excellent waterproofing material, providing a tight, secure seal against water infiltration that can prevent leaks and water damage.

  • Energy efficiency: Modified bitumen can be designed to be highly reflective, reducing the amount of heat that is absorbed by the roof and lowering cooling costs in hot climates.

  • Low maintenance: Modified bitumen requires very little maintenance, making it a popular choice for commercial and industrial buildings that don't have the time or resources for frequent upkeep.
