Modified Roofing System
Modified bitumen or “mod bit” roofing is an asphalt product offering many advantages over other types of membrane roofing materials. As a result, we often recommend it for flat roof replacements and restorations. It is especially effective as an alternative to built-up roofs. With proper installation, the modified bitumen roof can far outlast other asphalt products, especially when installed with a coating to protect against UV exposure.
The reinforced sheets require a less labor-intensive application that makes installation more cost-effective. This roofing material can be applied to low-slope or flat roofs providing long-lasting protection against the elements. It has a long life that can exceed 10 years when properly installed and maintained. Our team of roofers is experienced in mod bit roofing, ensuring you will get the longest possible use of your new or restored commercial roofing system.
Benefits of Modified Bitumen
There are several benefits to using a modified bitumen roof on your commercial building. We find it highly dependable with a proven track record. It is one of the earlier materials used for flat roofs. The fact that is still the roof of choice for many roofing companies is proof that it is durable. Although these roofs are recommended for about 10 years, they have proven time and again they can last 20 years or more. This translates into savings for your business for repairs and replacements.
The seams are sealed tight helping to prevent chronic leaks common to flat roofs. This makes it a dependable option that will avoid water damage and the need to call in roof repair experts on a regular basis. Compared to other membrane roofing products that have seams that are not sealed properly or even left slightly open, a modified bitumen roof is less at risk of weakening due to exposure to rain and sun.
With seamless installation, your modified bitumen roof is far more durable. It reduces the risk of leaks and associated damage thanks to its high-tensile strength. This also means modified bitumen roofs are not likely to develop cracks common to other flat roof materials.

Finally, modified bitumen roofs are rated against wind, fire, and hail. This means they are less vulnerable to the ravages of nature especially in the severe storms common in Kansas. Long manufacturer’s warranties help protect you from damages if the roof for some reason does not meet expectations for longevity.
