What is Modified Bitumen Roofing?

Modified bitumen roofing systems are composed of asphalt and rubber modifiers and solvents in specific quantities. This roofing system is excellent for moving water off of flat or extremely low-slope roofs in order to prevent leaks. Modified bitumen combines traditional and modern roofing technologies to produce a time-tested, superior roofing system that has been in consistent use for many years around the world. The two polymers used to make modified bitumen, Styrene Butadiene Styrene (SBS) and Atactic Polypropylene (APP), modify the membrane giving it greater elasticity and temperature resistance. Each works best for certain conditions and roof types, so our expert technicians will ensure the proper application is used on your structure. There are several methods used for proper installation of modified bitumen roofing systems including seam-heated, hot-mopped, cold-applied, and self-adhesive. Luckily, Chicago Roofing Solutions has the expertise to handle whichever one works best for your structure.

Modified Bitumen Roofing System Inspections & Consultations

Chicago Roofing Solutions offers free roof inspections and consultations to our industrial, multiunit residential, commercial, governmental, and institutional clients throughout Chicago and the surrounding suburbs. This is especially valuable for modified bitumen roofing because of the different types and their specific requirements for installation and repair. One of our talented, experienced technicians will inspect your roof and offer a free estimate for repairs or installation based on your expressed needs and budgetary limitations. It is important to remember that with a Chicago Roofing Solutions Proactive Maintenance Program, your modified bitumen roof will last for many more years than if simply left to fend for itself. If you feel your structure could use a good inspection, call Chicago Roofing Solutions today at (312) 588-6969.

Modified Bitumen Roofing System Installation

The installation of a modified bitumen roof depends greatly upon the particular type of polymer sheet Chicago Roofing Solutions has identified as being appropriate for your structure. SBS is very similar to rubber and is applied to your roof with hot asphalt or cold adhesives. APP is installed with heat via what is known in the industry as the “torch method”. This entails a technician heating the roof with torch prior to unrolling the modified bitumen membrane. All of our technicians are extensively trained in the latest techniques, including safety measures, and use only the finest tools and equipment. You can rest easy knowing each crew is fully licensed and insured to do all the work you need.

Modified Bitumen Roofing System Repairs

Modified bitumen, being reinforced with fiberglass and polyester, is very resistant to wear and tear, so it makes an excellent option for roofing that expects to be treated with disdain by the elements. Yet, even modified bitumen’s tough exterior needs help every now and then. When damage occurs, all you have to do is call Chicago Roofing Solutions and we’ll quickly have a crew sent to your location for repairs to begin immediately. We understand the value of prompt service when loss of revenue is involved, and do all we can to ensure your task is completed with minimal intrusion and maximum results.
