Modified Bitumen Roofing

Modified bitumen (MB) is an excellent alternative for residential buildings as well as for commercial units like multi-family apartments. It is an extremely economical and flexible roofing system for low-slope or flat roofs. One of the oldest of the “modern” roofing methods, it has been time-tested. And with the new advances in technology, it has become a long-lasting and safe roofing material for single and multi-family dwellings.

Modified bitumen is asphalt with modifiers added to it to give it plastic or rubber-like properties making it much more durable.  It is made of six basic layers that can be assembled in a number of different combinations.

Low or No Roof Maintenance

Modified bitumen requires little maintenance over an average 20 year lifespan. Toward the end of the 20 years, coatings can be applied to extend its serviceable life even more.
