When choosing a flat roof system, there are lots of different roofing materials to choose from like rubberized roofing or thermoplastic, but modified bitumen roofing is one of the oldest types of flat roofing and is also very common.
For flat roofing services in Chicago IL, SRS Exteriors is the local roofing company to call. Not only do we have the most flat roofing material options, but our expert roofers are also very experienced with flat roofing.
Modified Bitumen Roofing Options from SRS Exteriors
Many flat roofs are covered in what is called a roofing membrane, or a sheet of flat material that arrives in rolls and is unrolled to cover the entire roof. The seams between the sheets are sealed using a variety of methods, often seam tape.
How does a modified bitumen roofing system work?
Modified bitumen roofing is a single-ply roofing membrane made of up different layers that each contribute to the functioning of the roof system. The bottom layer, installed right on top of the roof decking, is an asphalt emulsion. After that, a fireproof reinforcing fabric adds strength. Next, a base coat seals the roofing, and finally, a light-colored top coat makes the roofing reflective to better protect against UV rays.
