When it comes to commercial roofing, modified bitumen roofing can provide establishments with efficient and long lasting protection. In fact, it is becoming a popular alternative to traditional asphalt roof, as it reduces the risk of leaks and pooling that occur with other roofing materials. Some homeowners and businesses, especially those who are still using traditional roofing systems, may still be unfamiliar with modified bitumen.
To address this, Willi Roofing explains the benefits of modified bitumen roofing in Austin.
What is modified bitumen roofing exactly?
Mostly fit flat or slightly sloped roofs, modified bitumen roofing uses plastic or rubber-based polymeric binders as addition to asphalt to boost the roof’s durability and performance. At Willi Roofing, we apply several coats or laminations of modified bitumen to serve as reinforcing mat. Granule-surface cap sheet covers the mat, which can have aluminum or white coating. Modified bitumen roofing is a lot like built-up roofing, but is easier to handle and install.
What are the benefits of modified bitumen roofing?
Our modified bitumen commercial roofing in Austin assures you of durability and strength. It is difficult to break and is resistant to punctures and tears. It can also carry a lot of weight, so heavy traffic will not cause a problem.
- Ease of installation
As this is a shingle-ply system, it is easier to install. There’s no need for a gravel topcoat as membrane roofing systems are directly fastened to the roof structure. This makes it faster for us to complete the installation.
Heavy rains, wind, and storm cannot easily break this type of roof as it can take such force. Modified bitumen roofing is also seamless and tightly sealed, helping prevent leaks and other similar problems.
With such benefits, we recommend this type of roofing to those in need of strong building protection. Having this roofing system will help ensure that your business will run smoothly without problems in your building. For further information and advice, call us at (512) 394-9994.
