Regularly used for a variety of commercial roofing projects, Modified Bitumen or Mod Bit Roofing Systems offer a variety of benefits and uses for low-slope roofs and commercial properties. At 1st Choice Roofing & Construction, our trained technicians can help you compare products and discuss the best option for your project. Here are just a few of the benefits of Mod Bit Roofing Systems:
Time Tested Roofing
First introduced in the 1970’s, Modified Bitumen is documented to be long lasting, durable, and resistant to leaks. In fact Mod Bit Roofs have been known to last 20 years or more.
Ease of Intallation
High rise? No problem! Mod Bit Roofing can be transported by elevator up to your roof.
An evolution on traditional asphalt roofing, modified bitumen employs a thick reinforced membrane for superior weatherability, puncture resistance, and exceptional longevity.
Damage resistance and longevity make Modified Bitumen an economical choice in commercial roofing. A reduced need for repairs and replacement will save you time and money.
Its high-tensile strength makes it unlikely to develop the cracks which some other flat or membrane roofs are susceptible to, particularly in freezing temperatures.
As a completely recyclable product, Modified Bitumen provides an encironmentally friendly commercial roofing system solution.
Modified Bitumen Roofing Systems
Modified Bitumen is ideal for locations that face storms and other severe weather. The experienced team of roofing technicians at 1st Choice Roofing can help you understand various applications and options that will create ideal results for your commercial project. A Modified Bitumen roof system can be installed by a “hot mopped” method, a “torch down” roofing method, or by adhering Bitumen roll roofing sheets and then rolling them into place.
Built Up Roofing (BUR) Systems
Great for low-slope roofs and also weather-resistant, Built-Up Roofing (BUR) systems are comprised of interchanging layers of bitumen and reinforcing fabrics. Typically, Bitumen used in BUR systems is asphalt, coal tar, or cold-applied adhesive. Surfacing includes aggregate such as gravel, slag and mineral granules, glass fiber or mineral surfaced cap sheets, hot asphalt mopped over the roof’s surface, elastomeric coatings or aluminum coatings.
