Modified Bitumen

What is Modified Bitumen?

Modified bitumen is the most common low slope roofing system found on older roofs. Modified bitumen is installed in 3' rolls, either torch applied using flame heat to weld the cap sheet to the base sheet(s) or self-adhering using factory applied adhesives on the various components.

Advantages:

  • Some of the best long-term fire resistance because of the integrated glass fibers used in the manufacturing
  • Ease of installation
  • Adaptability

Disadvantages:

  • Lack of flexibility in cold weather conditions
  • More seams (because of the narrow rolls) creates more potential for leaks
  • Use of open flame torch down installation increases the risk of fire during installation
  • Lacks U.V. protection found on other products leading to premature weathering.

When should I consider Modified Bitumen?

Because most EPDM is black and lacks the reflectivity of TPO, EPDM is generally used in colder, northern climates. However, EPDM may be a good solution if you already have an EPDM ballasted roofing system.

The installation process

Modified Bitumen is installed in 3' wide rolls. Systems are defined by the number of layers of modified bitumen installed. A typical 2-ply system consists of a base sheet followed by a cap sheet. Sheets are installed either torch applied using flame heat to weld the cap sheet to the base sheet(s) or self-adhering using factory applied adhesives on the various components.
