Why Choose a Modified Bitumen Roof

So what is a modified bitumen roofing system actually made out of? This is a roofing system that is reinforced with fiberglass or polyester fiber matting. This reinforced matting is able to drastically increase the durability and strength of your roofing system. It also creates a weather-resistant barrier that further helps to protect your property from potential damage that can come from storms.

Maintenance for Your Modified Bitumen Roofing System

Want to extend the life of your bitumen roof? Then all you need to do is provide simple, regular maintenance services to ensure you are getting the most out of your investment. Proper maintenance begins with an annual inspection from our qualified team of contractors. This inspection gives us the opportunity to find and address any issues that might be developing on your roof so they can be handled quickly at a lower cost than if the damage continues to grow.

If you notice any penetrations to the seal of your roofing system it is important that you get them fixed right away to avoid further damage. Additionally, all debris should be removed from your roof on a regular basis to lower the potential of more damage occurring.

Want to add extra protection to your bitumen roofing system? Then we recommend adding elastomeric coating. This coating is able to extend the lifespan of your roofing system by seven to ten years.
