Modified bitumen is one of the most common low-slope roofing systems for commercial buildings.
Businesses in St. Louis commonly use modified bitumen as the roofing material for their commercial buildings because it offers advantages like easy installation, as well as durability — thus increasing the roof’s longevity.
Modified bitumen is a single-ply rolled out roof that is installed with heat to activate the adhesive. Because it is heated, it is installed with great care due to fire risk, which means the building must be unoccupied during installation. It is applied in overlapping rolls creating large seamless areas, but it is not as durable to walk on as other types of roofing materials.
Modified bitumen roofing is a single-ply roof that is ideal for roofs that are difficult to waterproof. Peel-and-stick roll roofing provides a faster installation time and can be installed while the building is occupied.
Some manufacturers promote their roof solutions as DIY and provide clear instructions on how to apply the material. We do not recommend any roofing installation as a DIY project, even if manufacturers promote it. Correct roof installation requires professional skill to ensure you are not left with leaks, punctures, or other problems.
