Commercial Modified Bitumen Roofing Company in Milwaukee

Modified Bitumen is an asphalt roofing membrane with Atactic Polypropylene (APP) or Styrene Butadiene Styrene (SBS) additives which give it properties similar to thermoplastic or rubber. Fiberglass or polyester fibers are added during manufacture to enhance durability. It comes in rolls with a variety of surfaces ranging from smooth to a coating of mineral granules, copper, aluminum, or gravel.

SBS-modified bitumen roofs are installed with hot asphalt or cold adhesive, while APP-modified bitumen roofs are almost always installed with a heat torch. To ensure proper drainage, modified bitumen roofing is only recommended for roofs with a slope greater than ¼” per horizontal foot.
