Modified Bitumen Roofing in
Tulsa, OK

Modified bitumen is an asphalt-based roofing material designed for flat or low-sloped roofs. It gets its name from the special polymer materials used to make it waterproof. These polymers are added to the traditional asphalt mixture to make it more resistant to rain and snow. It offers many advantages over built-up roofing systems, such as increased durability and flexibility during extreme weather events like hail storms or heavy winds.

Why Should You Choose Modified Bitumen For Your Commercial Roof?

Modified bitumen is now giving strong competition to other commercial roofing options such as TPO and EPDM due to its many advantages. Some of them include:

  • It can be installed on virtually any roof surface, including those with cracks and irregularities.
  • It offers superior flexibility compared to other roofing solutions, it can adapt to changes in temperature better than some other systems.
  • The material is durable and if properly applied, it can last up to 20 years before needing replacement.
  • If the system is applied with an underlayment, it will offer additional protection against water intrusion and UV damage.

Types Of Installation Methods

The modified bitumen roof installation process will depend on the kind of modified bitumen you use.
Hot-applied: This is the most common form of a modified bitumen roof. It involves heating a polymer-modified asphalt sheet with an open flame. The sheet has a layer of adhesive that melts and seals it to the roof deck.
Cold-applied: The product is applied to a cold deck surface and rolled out until the adhesive softens and bonds the membrane to the roof.
