Modified Bitumen Roof Specialists for Your Business
Are you searching for an affordable low-sloped roofing material? Modified bitumen roofing is a popular option for low-slope commercial roofs in Texas due to its elasticity and weather resistance. Stevan Buren Roofing, Windows, and Flooring can help you choose the best modified bitumen roof product for your specific needs and deliver a perfect installation.
What Is a Modified Bitumen Roof?
Taking its inspiration from traditional built-up roofing, modified bitumen (ModBit) is an asphalt-based material with a granulated surface. It comes in rolls and is heat-applied to the roof’s surface using torches. ModBit comes in a variety of colors and, in southern states, it is common to choose white for its reflective properties. At Stevan Buren Roofing, we typically heat-apply modified bitumen to create the best seal and the best leak prevention.
Benefits of Installing Modified Bitumen
Modified bitumen offers several advantages that many commercial property owners appreciate. First, it is tear-resistant and a great option if there will be heavy foot traffic. This durability comes from a combination of fiberglass and/or polyester reinforcement layers. In addition to its durability, it is also a very flexible material. Modified bitumen will expand and contract without losing its shape in the hot summer sun.
Another great advantage of a modified bitumen roof is its energy efficiency. The top releases absorbed heat, which can reduce the overall energy consumption of your business.
Finally, modified bitumen roofs are easy to repair and maintain. If your roof does tear or a leak occurs, repairs can be made quickly and efficiently through patches. Small sections of bitumen can be asphalted to the surface where the tear or break has happened. The most common instance of a roofing failure occurs at the seams and areas where the roof meets flashing.
