Property owners in Toronto trust All Roofing Toronto to deliver excellent services when it comes to installing and fixing modified bitumen roofs. For many years, we’ve proven continuously that we top the list by providing homeowners with the best solutions, and we’re proud to have maintained a track record of excellence and quality.
Although delivering an excellent modified bitumen roof for you in Toronto is our priority, we also want to make sure you have the best knowledge about modified bitumen roofing. This will enlighten you on what you’re getting.
Modified bitumen mixes hot asphalt with plastic and rubber additives, not confused with related products like asphalt roll roofing, EPDM, or TPO. Then they are layered between polyester or fiberglass sheets.
Due to its superior tear resistance, this option is usually used on commercial roofs in Seattle. That is due to the reinforcement layers of the fiberglass and polyester. Due to its waterproofing feature, it is also popular. If you’re expecting greater than regular foot traffic on your roof, changed bitumen is the top option.
The word “rubber roof” is interchangeably used with both roofing forms, despite its similarity to EPDM. They are entirely different. Although EPDM is manufactured from recycled rubber tires, asphalt is modified bitumen, and polymer blends are modified. With the strengthening layers, it is then assembled.
Modified bitumen is described as a single-ply roofing membrane similar to TPO and PVC roofs in the Toronto area. The roofing membrane comes in a blend of two forms.
- Styrene-butadiene-styrene (SBS) offers the rubber-like properties of asphalt and delivers a flexible membrane even at cold temperatures. It may either be coated together with hot asphalt or applied separately using cold adhesive.
- Compared with SBS, Atactic Polypropylene (APP) is more resistant to ultraviolet radiation. Generally, it is applied by heat welding.
Every well-installed Modified Bitumen membrane has the following:
- Membrane: the majority of roofing on flat roofs is shaped by a membrane. This is where bitumen and strengthening compounds are layered to have a strong roofing membrane. The more layers there are, the longer the length of life will be.
- Flashing: flashing refers to a process that produces a seal in the membrane’s body around the joints and intersecting edges; this includes the edges of the tubing, vents, and roof.
- Seal: every sealed overlap between two waterproof materials refers to seals. It could be any membrane and blinking mix. Cold adhesives, hot-welding, or self-adhesion may help make seals, depending on the polymer mix.
Roof defects in seals and flashing are known to occur, so the construction takes careful precautions to ensure these sections’ continuous sealing.
Why You Need Modified Bitumen Roofing Systems
All Roofing Toronto always completes a project by presenting more advantageous roofing installments to its clients. Say we visit your home for a roof installation; we complete the construction by leaving you with a better preparedness against the noise and hits of extreme weather conditions.
Modified bitumen roofing has an estimated life cycle of 20 years and is a long-lasting material. But because it’s a low-maintenance roofing membrane, requiring only minimal care and maintenance, you don’t have to spend a lot of money to make it last much longer.
This roofing system is also one of the best commercial roofing systems and, due to its polymer adaptation; it can survive both low and high temperatures.
Modified bitumen is also flexible, and to improve its physical and elemental toughness; you can add more polymer material sheets. Consequently, roof replacements are smoother since they usually only require applying another coating to the bitumen roofing.
