What is Modified Bitumen Roofing?

Modified Bitumen (MB) roofing is an asphalt-based roofing system designed for structures with low-slope roofs. MB roofing membranes have been used in the US since the mid 1970s.

Benefits of Modified Bitumen Roofing:

  • Tear Resistance: A major advantage MB roofing offers over other commercial roofing systems is its tear resistance. The combination of fiberglass and/or polyester reinforcement layers under its surface creates a strong, tear-resistant roofing surface. Additionally, this quality makes MB roofing an ideal choice for low-sloped roofs that sustain high foot traffic or rooftop equipment.
  • Flexibility: Flexible low-slope roofing is impact resistant as well as highly resistant to temperature changes. MB can expand and contract without losing shape or structure. 
  • Energy Efficiency: MB can be installed with a “cool roof” treatment like solar reflectance, resulting in reduced indoor cooling requirements.
  • Waterproof: MB is one of the top-chosen commercial roofing options, as bitumen is naturally waterproof.
Efficient Repair and Maintenance Options: Because MB roofs can be repaired using bitumen patches, the repair process is quick and efficient. Low-slope roofing failures usually occur on seals and flashing. With proper installation and our yearly maintenance package, these issues should be minimized.
