Modified Bitumen Roofing Installation

Similar to the Built-up Roof (BUR), the Modified Bitumen (MB) Roofing System adapts perfectly to low-slope and flat roof commercial construction. The Modified Bitumen technology was developed in Europe in the 1960s and has proven its superiority in the US and in Canada since the 1970s.

Modified Bitumen Roofing Systems are valued for their superior resistance to extreme temperatures. They adapt well to both cold and heat due to a high level of elasticity. This is achieved by combining rubber polymers like fiberglass and polyester with bitumen (or asphalt).

The MB Roofing System can be surfaced with a mineral, gravel, or reflective "cool roof" coating to lower utility costs. Mineral surfaces come in white or designer colors to enhance the appearance of a commercial property.

Benefits of Modified Bitumen Roofing Systems include:

  • High elasticity to reduce brittleness and increase strength
  • MB Systems perform well over time
  • Wide range of coating options
  • Fire and flame resistant
  • Highly waterproof to resist leaks
  • Withstands wind, hail and intense sunlight
