What is a Modified Bitumen Flat Roof?
Modified bitumen is a rubberized asphalt product that can be applied to a roof surface to create a durable seal against wind, rain, and other harsh weather. It is often applied using heat—in a process known as torch-down roofing—but can also be applied cold. When heated, the bitumen material forms a permanent seal with the roofing underlayment creating a waterproof barrier. In some cases, multiple layers are applied for increased protection and durability.
Modified bitumen is popular for a number of reasons. First of all, it is one of the longer lasting flat roof options on the market. When applied correctly, modified bitumen roofs have been known to last well over 20 years with little to no maintenance. Modified bitumen roofs, unlike traditional black asphalt flat roofs, also have a light-colored mineral surface which reflects the sun’s rays rather than absorbing them. This can help your home maintain a more consistent interior temperature without your HVAC system having to work as hard, which can also translate to lower monthly energy bills.
